4-Bay Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis



4-Bay Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis
4 Drive Bay Gigabit Network RAID
Storage System Chassis
The intelligent chassis of the Linksys Network Storage System NSS4000 gives
administrators and integrators the flexibility to optimize the NSS for performance,
capacity and a company’s storage and sharing needs. The NSS4000 supports up to 15
concurrent, connected CIFS (Windows, Macintosh, Linux) users. Linksys NSS products
bring robust NAS (Network Attached Storage) within reach of today’s budget-minded
workgroups and small businesses. They are ideal for storing, backing up, sharing and
archiving critical information. The feature set of the NSS series set it apart from entrylevel, desktop NAS systems, while at the same time its competitive pricing gives small
businesses the opportunity to realize substantial cost savings when compared with more
expensive storage systems.
Unlike other NAS systems, that need to contain operating system software on one or more
hard drives in a NAS system, each Linksys NSS product features a unique and intelligent
chassis that contains the Linux OS that controls it. This gives the NSS system added stability
and reliability, as well as the flexibility to be configured without connected drives or
reconfigured at any time - even hot swapping and resorting hard drives to different storage
bays. This flexible architecture makes the Linksys Business Series NSS series ideally suited for
budget-conscious companies that are constantly growing and evolving.
Linksys Business Series NSS products are also Linksys One Ready. That means they include the
necessary firmware to be integrated into a Linksys One data or data/voice network.
