The NAS540 covers a variety of high-performance cloud storage needs, from backing up office documents to streaming stored movie files to TVs and devices. USB ports and an SD card reader enable external data transfers at faster speeds. "The explosion of data is putting a huge strain on current data storage solutions," Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL, told eWEEK. "As consumers and professionals continue to rely heavily on smartphones to share content and access information, it’s critical that storage appliances not only provide maximum storage capacity, but that they are also easily accessible to consumers and professionals on the go." Its rich features, small business-friendly size, storage capacity and universal SATA drive compatibility make the NAS540 ideal for small businesses and pro consumers, Joe added.
Streaming stored multimedia content from the NAS540 is made possible with its built-in DLNA server, while HD and 4K content can be delivered to multiple TVs and devices simultaneously while maintaining quiet fan operation.
