The AccuNAS AN4L+BBKU is a backup appliance designed to use in network environment for data backup. It supports Windows, MAC and Linux Network in SMB, AFP and NFS network, consolidate data storage from different network, while backing up the data using build-in support of replication, or copy the data within to different location. AN4L+BBKU support backup within itself, as well as backup to another unit of AccuNAS / EliteNAS storage on schedule. Backup support with up to 10 different revision to unsure no data is accentially deleted. Front USB 3.0 ports allow removeable hard drives, such TowerSTOR and MobileSTOR USB 3.0 series (TS1UT+B, MS1UT+B, TR4UT+B, TR5UT+B, and TR8UT+B) as external copy of data. Optional RDX docking station or LTO Tape drives is available for offsite, offline data backup.

AN4L+BBKU build-in with 2 network port for failover, as well as 4 hard drives, up to 16TB in RAID 0, 1, 10, 5 and 6 for performance and protection in RAID applications. AN4L+BBKU is half of the wide of the 4U rackmount, and optional rackmount kit (part#: CS-SAN-VA004RK) available to mounting two units into one 4U space. This innovative design allows two units back up each other in a data center or production envirnoment. Built upon AccuNAS and EliteNAS network storage operating systems, AN4L+BBKU provide many other features, such as FTP server, ADS / LDAP supports as well as iSCSI target and initialor support. AN4L+BBKU is an ideal chooice for NAS and unattended data backup in the network.

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.
