SnapServer DX1


Network Attached Storage

Built upon the award winning GuardianOS, the SnapServer DX1 is the first storage system that you do not have to provision. The 1U, 4-drive SnapServer DX1 supports DynamicRAID for seamless storage expansion by adding or replacing hard drives as capacity requirements change. The SnapServer storage volumes can grow or shrink dynamically within the storage pool without IT intervention, preventing costly provisioning errors and unnecessary upgrades.

The SnapServer DX1 supports desktop SATA-II and enterprise class SATA-II hard drives and is scalable up to 160TB with the optional SnapExpansion chassis. With both block and file level access, the SnapServer DX1 has cross-platform compatibility with Windows, Linux, UNIX and Macintosh systems and is ideal for file sharing and storage consolidation. The SnapServer DX1 includes data protection features such as, DynamicRAID, snapshots, disk-to-disk backup and supports optional data replication.
