Acting as a main work hub center, the storage device is able to connect up to 20 users, both Mac and PC, via USB and Ethernet connection. miniStack NAS has a "6 times faster performance rate than older PC file sharing-based technologies," stated the company press release. It can maintain data speeds of 100Mb per second with an Ethernet connection or 480Mb/s with a USB 2.0 connection.
The miniStack NAS includes security functions for confidential information, according to the release. Users can set levels of read and write privileges. NAS technology renders the device "invisible" from possible hackers.
The drive is 6.5" x 6.5" x 1.5" in size. It comes with up 16MB of data cache and one USB 2.0/1.1 high speed port. With the flat design, the product aims to take up less space with the ability stack one drive on top of another.
