ASUSTOR has just launched four new NAS units and they are all part of the World’s first Braswell powered NAS units. The new NAS devices are the AS6202T 2-bay and AS6204T 4-bay NAS powered by quad-core processors while the AS6102T and AS6104T are powered by dual-core processors. The choice of CPU brings along quite a few advantages besides having an overall more powerful chip in your back and would be a great choice for both prosumer and SMB users.

Along with the new Braswell CPUs, the four NAS units feature EAS-NI hardware encryption, expandable memory, plenty of USB 3.0 and eSATA ports as well as HDMI and audio out for Ultra HD 4K direct connections. The system is utilizing dual-channel memory and can expanded up to 8GB.

The new units also come ready and pre-installed with the latest version of ASUSTOR’s operation systems, ADM 2.5, that brings along a lot of improvements and strengthening of the core functions. Better backup features and security, enhanced network recycle bins, and iSCSI LUN snapshots are just a few of those.

ASUSTOR Readying New 4k Capable NAS and New Entry Level Series

There isn’t long time until Computex 2015 takes off and all the big hardware players will be at the event to showcase their latest advances and creations. ASUSTOR is of course one of the companies that will be present at Computex and they’ll present at least two new lines of NAS servers, the 61 Enthusiast Series and the 10 Series for the entry-level market.

ASUSTOR’s 61 Series utilizes the newest high-performance Intel Braswell processors and includes the AS6102T and AS6104T models with 2 and 4 disk bays respectively. Both devices in this series come with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and 4GB memory out of the box. The maximum support amount of memory is 8GB in both models for those who need more than the standard 4GB. Compared with its previous generation, the 61 series feature superior transfer performance and provides smoother multitasking as well as the newly added support for 4K/2K high-resolution video output directly from the NAS. The new 61 series would be perfect to act as both your personal cloud storage as well as a home entertainment hub.

The ASUSTOR 10 Series on the other hand, is a brand new entry-level model. The 10 series was created for the price conscious consumer and it is based on a Marvell processor. It comes with what is called an “eye-catching diamond-plate finish” on the exterior and it is just as easy to use as your personal cloud and file storage as it could be.

I for once can’t wait to find out more about these new NAS series and I’ll make sure to keep you all updated as more information and specifications are released.
