The D-Link DNS-320 ShareCenter Pulse is a 2-bay Network Attached Storage (NAS) device with backup and media features that make it ideal for storing and sharing photos, music, movies and work files on a home network.
Safely share digital files locally and over the Internet
The ShareCenter Pulse Network Storage device enables users to share documents and media content such as photos, music and videos on a home network or over the Internet. File access is easy and straightforward with the built-in web file server, which allows users to browse and download stored files over the Internet. The more technical user can manage the contents of their ShareCenter Pulse from any FTP client.
Stream Digital Media Content with the built-in Media Server
The built-in UPnP media server will stream the media content on your ShareCenter Pulse to any compatible media player such as the PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and D-Link Boxee Box over your local network. The ShareCenter Pulse allows for multiple simultaneous streams, so you can watch a movie on your entertainment centre while someone else listens to music streamed over their computer.
Performance, protection and confidentiality
The ShareCenter Pulse has a Gigabit port for the fastest connectivity possible to your home network through your router. RAID 1 technology ensures that your valuable data will not be lost by mirroring the contents of one hard drive onto the other, so if one drive fails, your data is still safe.
The confidentiality and integrity of all your files is guaranteed as you can give rights to specific users or groups and assign them to folders with read/write permissions. This function is ideal for the home, where children's access can be restricted to only age appropriate materials, while ensuring that nobody can delete your files by accident.
The DNS-320 ShareCenter Pulse is part of D-Link Green, D-Link's programme for providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance: if the hard drives are not used in a configurable period of time, or data is not being transmitted, the Sharecenter Pulse will enter stand-by mode to save power. Also, the silent fan will adapt its speed depending on the hard drives temperature
