Snap Appliance Inc., makers of network attached storage (NAS) products, has increased the storage capacities of all models in all three of the Snap Server 1100, 2200, and 4100 series by as much as 100 percent. All three lines offer file sharing in mixed Mac, Windows, Netware, Unix and Linux environments.
The Snap Server 1100 family is presently offered in 40GB, 80GB and 120GB versions; the latter is a new addition. The line is designed for small office/home office and corporate remote offices with limited IT resources.
The Snap Server 2200 — built for workgroups — now has 240GB of storage capacity, up from 160GB. It includes two 120-gigabyte IDE hard drives, ships in a RAID 0 mode, and lets users reconfigure to RAID 1 (mirroring) or JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks). The 2200 has no license fee or requirements.
The Snap Server 4100 — designed for workgroups or departments that need to serve up to 150 users — is now available in a 320GB capacity.
