The AccuNAS AN5L+B is
a performance tuned Network Attached Storage for high capacity network based data storage. Much more advanced than most 5-bay NAS towers on the market, the AN5L+B utilizes the power of Intel Intel Celeron Dual-Core 1.50Ghz CPU and 4GB of DDR III memory, to provide exceptionally fast performance. With increased CPU processing power, the AN5L+B is capable of providing enterprise-level features such as iSCSI initiator and target support, snapshot with scheduling, and real-time NAS-to-NAS folder replication. Along with built-in RAID 5 and 6, the AN5L+B provides enterprise-class features that are normally not included in product of such price range.
Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.

Dual Gigabit and RAID Hard Drives Protection
AN5L+B is designed with simple setup and easy maintenance features in mind. Features such as installation wizard for easy implementation out of the box, convenient web-based management for local or remote configuration, Dual 10/100/1000 network ports supporting network teaming and fail-over redundnacy plus RAID protection for your data storage making the AN5L+B a very robust yet easy to use NAS server system.
Feature Rich Network Storage - Built-in Snapshot, Folder Replication and iSCSI
In comparison to other NAS products in the market, EliteNAS is bundled with many enterprise level advanced features without the addtional cost. For example, iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support for future data storage expansion, NAS to NAS folder replication, scheduled or on-demand volume snapshot and local tape backup support just to name a few.
iSCSI Support for VMware
To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX or Vsphere, the AN5L+B can be uses as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX or ESXi sever hosting multiple virtual machines. Utilizing the AN5L+B as an iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, the AN5L+B is ready for your VMware storage virtulization needs.
