ASUSTOR logoASUSTOR recently announced four rackmount NASes.

The new "enterprise-level" NASes include the 1U four-bay AS-604RS and AS-604RD and 2U nine-bay AS-609RS and AS-609RD.

The new rackmounts use a hardware platform similar to ASUSTOR's recently-introduced desktops with 2.13 GHz Intel D2700 series dual-core Atom processors, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 3 GB total) and dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.

All models have hot-swappable drive bays accepting 2.5" and 3.5" SATA II/III drives configurable as individual, JBOD or RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 or 10 volumes. One HDMI, two USB 3.0, four USB 2.0 and two eSATA ports are common to all versions, while the RD versions also have dual hot-swappable power supplies.

The base feature set is expandable via optional apps, which include media server, content management, database and web hosting capabilities. All rackmount models are also verified as VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready.

The AS-604RD ($1299) will be shipping shortly with the other three versions in about a month from now. All carry a 2 year warranty. Other prices are $999 for the AS-604RS, $1,599 for the AS-609RS and $1,899 for the AS-609RD.

All prices are U.S. MSRP and do not include rack mounting rails.
