ASUSTOR logo ASUS has entered the Network Storage market with four dual-core Atom-based boxes.

Actually, it's ASUStek subsidiary, ASUSTOR that last week announced its AS 6 Series NASes. The two, four, six and eight bay models are all powered by dual-core 2.13 GHz Intel D2700 Atom CPUs with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 3 GB total).

All models accept 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard or solid state drives up to 4 TB into hot-swappable bays. Drives can be configured in individual, JBOD and multiple RAID 0 and 1 volumes on the two-bay AS-602T and additionally as RAID 5, 6 or 10 volumes on the AS-604T, AS-606T and AS-608T, four, six and eight-bay models. Both online RAID level migration and capacity expansion are supported across the line.
