Rapid, redundant, and real-time remote replication

The SYMKLOUD CS3160 NAS platform provides a dedicated approach to storing and distributing data on a network. Data reliability is ensured with RAID features that provide data security and recovery for multiple Terabytes of storage configured using RAID 5 and RAID 6. Gigabit Ethernet ports enhance network efficiency, allowing the CS3160 to take over file management functions, increase application and data sharing and provide faster data response.

Highlighted CS3160 features include:

  • Offers data mobility with a disk roaming feature that lets you swap working hard drives for use in other CS3160, securing the continuity of data in the event of hardware failure;
  • Allows data consolidation and sharing between Windows (SMB/CIFS), UNIX/Linux, and Apple OS X environments; 
  • User-friendly GUI that supports multiple languages.

System Administration / Web Interface
System Monitor to monitor CPU, memory, network utilization and protocols access user count, plus Syslog Management to send syslog to assigned location; act as syslog server to receive log info from other systems.
File Server

With a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, you can centralize your files and share them easily over your network. With the easy-to-use web-based interface, users on your network can access these files in a snap.

FTP Server
With the built-in FTP Server, friends, clients, and customers can upload and download files to your CS3160 over the Internet with their favorite FTP programs. You can create user accounts so that only authorized users have access.

iSCSI Capability
The CS3160 is not only a file server, but it also supports iSCSI initiators. Your server can access the CS3160 as a direct-attached-storage over the LAN or Internet. There is no easier way to expand the capacity of your current application servers. All the storage needs can be centrally managed and deployed. This brings ultimate flexibility to users.

Superior Power Management
The CS3160 supports schedule power on/off. With this feature, administrator can set at what time to turn on or off the system. This feature is a big plus for people who want to conserve energy. Wake-On-LAN enables administrator to remotely turn on the system without even leaving their own seat.
