Enhanced Recycle Bin mechanism

Ultimate data protection

ASUSTOR NAS makes use of RAID storage technology to provide protection for your data. RAID mainly revolves around the core concept of combining your disks to protect the data inside. ASUSTOR offers a number of different RAID level configurations that you can choose from when creating storage volumes. Each RAID level offers a differing degree of data protection, system performance and storage space. ASUSTOR's supported RAID levels are summarized in the chart below:

RAID Level Single JBOD RAID 0 RAID 1 RAID 5 RAID 6 RAID 10
Minimum number of disks 1 2 2 2 3 4 4
Faulty Disks Tolerated X X X 1 1 2 1
Increased System performance X X V X V V V
Maximum use of Storage space V V V X X X X

Strengthen ADM Account Security

2-Step verification provides additional security for your ADM account. After configuration, in addition to your ADM account password, you will also need a phone verification code to sign in to ADM. With 2-step verification, you can protect ADM account privacy and ensure data security with both a password and your personal mobile device.

Supported authentication app:
Windows phone: Authenticator
Android、iOS、Blackberry: Google Authenticator

Strengthen ADM Account Security

Seamless integration

Windows Active Directory (AD) is a directory service created by Microsoft, widely used by many corporations, that allows IT administrators to centralize and manage resources over a network. Understanding the account integration needs that businesses have, ASUSTOR has ensured that all its NAS devices are able to seamlessly integrate with Windows AD. After an ASUSTOR NAS has been successfully added to a Windows AD domain, AD users will then be able to use their own AD accounts to log in to and access the NAS. This provides simple and efficient management for IT staff as they do not need to create new accounts for every NAS added to the domain.

Seamless integration

Easy management

Managing large scale IT environments have always been the heaviest burden for IT managers. ASUSTOR has made continuous efforts in this area to help IT staff simplify their responsibilities and reduce their burden. ADM's easy to use interface provides management tools for network users and groups, allowing IT administrators to configure different folder access rights for each Windows AD user and group.

Easy management

Configured ACL permissions can be applied to Samba, File Explorer, AFP, FTP and WebDAV protocols, avoiding the need to configure permissions for each individual protocol and avoiding human errors that could cause access leaks.
Furthermore, in order to allow files to maintain their original ACL settings after they have been moved to the NAS, ASUSTOR NAS supports the free 3rd party software FastCopy, for this unique job.

Extending Windows permissions management to your NAS

The ultimate tool for remote backup

Rsync is an application originally developed for UNIX that is usually used for backup and sync between two computers. By providing block level replication, Rsync is able to offer incremental backup.
