New mydlink-enabled NAS helps remote users to view documents and multimedia anytime, anywhere
Indonesia, November 2012 — D-Link International Pte Ltd, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of networking products today launched the latest addition to its ShareCenter line of network storage (NAS) products, the DNS-320L. A winner of the 2012 red dot design award, the ShareCenter 2-Bay Cloud Network Storage Enclosure is a DLNA-certified NAS that provides convenient remote access to files and multimedia from the mydlink website or mobile app. Once up and running, registered mydlink users can play stored music, watch videos, and view photos on the NAS directly from their mobile device using the mydlink Access-NAS app.
In any digital home, it is not uncommon to find multiple computers and mobile devices each with different files and media spread across them. However, this digital data is rarely shared or backed up between computers. If any single computer fails due to a virus or hardware problem, it can mean the loss of priceless family photos, essential tax information, and purchased digital media. Thus, having an external backup is vital for preserving this valuable data. The DNS-320L presents an ideal solution, as a secure, central space where an entire library important files can be stored while remaining accessible from anywhere.
“As a mydlink-enabled product, the DNS-320L eliminates many of the most common technical hurdles to provide secure access to shared files while at home or on the go,” said Ms Estella Tan, Sales Director, D-Link International Pte Ltd. “No amount of storage is useful unless it’s accessible. That’s why we’ve made mydlink so easy to get to from any device, so that documents and multimedia are instantly available at the touch of a screen.”
mydlink Access-NAS: Form Your Personal Cloud
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices are exceedingly portable. Unfortunately, this portability often comes at the expense of space for storing files and multimedia. With a mydlink-enabled NAS like the DNS-320L, these limitations are left in the dust with nearly limitless storage for a content library that is accessible virtually anywhere. The DNS-320L does this by establishing a “personal cloud” that allows owners to access and maintain control over their digital content. Once registered to the mydlink platform, content stored on the DNS-320L is reachable from any compatible web browser or from a mobile device running the mydlink Access-NAS app for iOS or Android™ device.
Stream and Share Multimedia
The DNS-320L is a convenient repository for files of any type, but is especially suited for multimedia such as digital audio, video, and photos. The DNS-320L is DLNA certified, ensuring interoperability with a variety of standalone, mobile, and personal computer-based media players. ShareCenter owners with a standalone media player like the Boxee Box can stream media directly to their TV without the need for an always-on computer. iPod®, iPad®, and iPhone® users who want to stream their library will appreciate integrated iTunes media server, while content-hungry consumers will find a built-in P2P download engine that hastens the process of downloading new content to the NAS.
Straightforward Installation and Configuration
The DNS-320L is designed to be up and running in minutes. With two bays, each supporting hard drives of up to 3TB, owners need simply attach the hard drive brackets to the sides of your hard drives with the included screw, open a hatch, slide in a hard drive or two, and power on. A convenient wizard simplifies the process of initializing and formatting new drives. High capacity drives can optionally be installed together in a RAID 1 configuration to prevent against lost data in the event of hard drive failure, or alternatively installed in one of any three additional modes (Standard, JBOD, RAID 0). Feature rich backup software and support for Apple® Time Machine are included to help ensure the integrity of important data from one or more computers.
As a D-Link Green product, the DNS-320L also includes several features that make it both environmentally-friendly and cost-effective. Hard drive power management and Smart Fan speed control to reduce energy costs, minimize noise, and prolong the lifespan of installed hard drives.
