The NAS server comes with 1Gb/s Ethernet as default and supports 10Gb/s Ethernet or 8Gb/s Fibre for options. It’s a solution consolidating NAS, SAN and iSCSI into one box which provides both file level and block level I/O access.

All proNAS 3.0-based storage has built-in hardware RAID engine to offer fault tolerance and data protection.  Drives can be set as hot spare, have automatically hot rebuild and allow online capacity expansion within the enclosure or externally via JBODs. For capacity expansion and scalability, there is a full JBOD product line for options which enables NAS supporting up to 228 drives totally.

ProNAS3.0 has fully-featured backup solutions including manual or scheduled backup for file, folder, and shares, and it can be backup and restore from multiple local or remote devices.
