Features and Benefits:

iSCSI + NAS, Exploit Storage with more Possibilities
VessRAID 1000i series provides iSCSI and NAS1 combined features which enables users to do file and block-based data transaction on the network.  iSCSI allows SCSI protocol to operate over TCP/IP and it’s getting popular in various IP-based applications as you can leverage existing network infrastructure to achieve SAN connectivity.  NAS devices are easy to deploy and ideal for file sharing over the network.  Files on NAS are transparent to users and applications, and its access convenience greatly reduces users’ learning curve on how to download and upload data to the storage.  With iSCSI and NAS support, VessRAID leads user to explore broader storage applications and possibilities.
