The mv5150 is the small-business version and there is also the mv2120 Media Vault aimed at home users. It comes with two drives for a total of 500 GB of storage and doesn't include the NTI Drive Backup "bare-metal" drive backup and online storage features of the mv5150.
Both models include NTI Shadow backup software for 10 Windows clients, Web-based Photosharing, UPnP Av / DLNA media and iTunes servers. Secure (HTTPS) remote file access is also supported with free and paid dynamic DNS services from TZO.
Both models run on a Marvell Orion processor and have 128 MB of RAM, supporting JBOD and RAID 1 modes (not hot-swappable). There is a 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN port, but it doesn't support jumbo frames.
Performance is good, but not great, with 12.5 MByte/s average write speed with a gigabit LAN connection in JBOD mode for file sizes between 32 MB and 1 GB. RAID 1 write under the same conditions is slightly slower at 11.2 MByte/s.
