This HFX PowerNas Fanless Server is completely passively cooled. While other NAS equipped with fans are loud and dusty, the HFX PowerNAS is the first fanless NAS with HFX's patented passive hard disk cooling technology. Big cooling rips on the sides ensure an optimum temperature. Integrated security fans only become active in case of necessity.
By selecting high-quality hard drives, this fanless NAS (Network Attached Storage) delivers up to 20 TB to your home network, accessible to all network users. In total, five hard disks can be simply and comfortably added or exchanged in the RAID hot-swap modus. We recommend the NAS ready Red Series of Western Digital Drives for most home NAS setups.
This PowerNAS fanless server can be used as a back-up solution for several computers, and can also be used as an extremely secure data storage vault with the supporting RAID functions, to prevent loss of data.
Defaulted with the new Windows Home Server 2011 software from Microsoft.
Digital photography, music, video, and documents from multiple PCs are centrally stored on the PowerNas Fanless Server, and can be easily protected, organized, and connected - from every computer on the home network. The user has full access to his files, even while away from home, with the built-in secure and personalized website address. Using Windows Home Server 2011, the user can easily extend the capabilities of the home server, using software add-ins and expanded storage capacity with up to 4TB hard drives. DLNA video, picture and audio servers are already installed, additional server services like Logitech, Bittorrent are easy to install, and Apple devices are fully supported.

Quiet Hard Drive This home server comes defaulted with an SSD. Solid-state drives (SSD) have no moving parts, so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are more reliable than standard mechanical hard drives. For the best Home NAS storage, you can add up to five additional quiet hard drives. We recommend using RAID in your home server for extra data security.
