internal GigaNAS adapter
 
Overview
 
Share as many as 16 hard drives over the LAN As large as one exbibyte per drive volume
 
85MB/sec transfer speed over 1G network Enterprise NAS at a fraction of the cost
 
This internal GigaNAS adapter is a simple solution for custom build your own high capacity Gigabit Network Attached Storage appliance. Come with all the necessary mounting brackets, this internal GigaNAS adapter can be mounted into any computer chassis with a standard PCI slot or Storage chassis such as the Addonics Storage Tower IV and larger that has a centronic 50-in (SCSI-I) cut out.
 
The internal GigaNAS adapter is built basing on the same electronic and firmware of the NAS 4.0 adapter. There are two SATA ports and one USB port to support connecting up to a total of 16 drives or RAID volume. By connecting drives to the SATA port of this GigaNAS adapter and onto the Gigabit network, data transfer rate can exceed 85 MB/sec., out performing many expensive NAS solution in the market.
 
The internal GigaNAS adapter supports storage devices with multiple partitions, with each partition appearing as a share folder on the network. The supported file system includes XFS, EXT2, EXT3, EXT4. NTFS and FAT32. A very large storage in excess of hundreds or thousands of Terabytes storage capacity can be easily built by attaching multiple drives or RAID volume via Port Multipliers or USB hubs. A storage farm with enough storage capacity for commercial data center can be easily put together at just a fraction of the cost of an enterprise storage system. More storage can be added to the Internal GigaNas adapter in many years to come without ever reaching the capacity limitation. Folders in an yof the attached storage can be set up to share both over the LAN or the WAN via the built-in FTP server, making this adapter a great solution for setting up private Cloud storage application.
 
New powerful features have been added to the internal GigaNAS adapter beginning 6/16/2014 via a new firmware release. There are now full disk sharing and existing folder sharing from drives created by other systems. Shares can be applied to both FTP and SMB for different users and with different READ/WRITE privileges. These new features allows quick set up of sharing information on existing drives through LAN and WAN, making it an ideal tool for setting up a private Cloud storage. It is also a great tool for sharing information on existing drive on a private network such as at home or a temporary LAN without any elaborate administrative set up.

Note

1. These new features are available on the latest firmware V98a.5. Products that are shipped after 6/15/2014 are loaded with the latest firmware. You may upgrade to the new firmware on your unit by going to the Support tab on this page and follow the firmware upgrade procedure.

2. Only folder name containing no space can be shared

 

Application note:

When a hard drive is attached to this NAS adapter, a unique mount point is created in the NAS adapter to track this drive. This mount point is associated with the volume serial number (VSN) of the drive. The VSN is a unique # created by the OS when the drive is formatted. The SHARE configuration for each drive follows the mount point of the drive. So in situation where you want to switch out to a different hard drive and use the same share set up, the new hard drive must have the same mount point or VSN as the hard drive being replaced. You may use RAID 1 to duplicate the VSN on both drives or you may use this free software utility https://www.xboxharddrive.com/freeware.htmlto change the VSN on the drive.

Please note that you cannot mount two or more drives with the same VSN to the NAS adapter, doing so may cause the NAS adapter to crash, unpredictable data loss or other problems. DO NOT use two drives from a mirror set or a clone set as these drives most likely have the same VSN. If you see drives with duplicate mount points under the VIEW DRIVE INFORMATION screen or during the SHARE set up, you should remove one of the drives with the same mount point ASAP.
