Shuttle launches the KS10, a storage solution for NAS entry-level users. This network-based one-bay storage solution is suitable for storing files (e.g. documents, music and photos) on the local network, for location-independent data backup or for setting up your own private cloud.
The fanless KS10 is suitable for 3.5" hard disks up to at least 4 Terabytes and has further USB ports for external storage devices and printer. Devices connected by USB cable as well as memory cards in the built-in SD card reader can be shared over the network. The Gigabit Ethernet network connection enables data transfer speeds of up to 80 MB/s when reading and up to 60 MB/s when writing. In addition, a built-in, access-protected WiFi hotspot can be enabled for communication with wireless devices.
"Once you've taken the machine out of the box, it can be set up in just a few simple steps. A multilingual wizard guides newcomers by the hand through the process," explains Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The supplied OMNINAS Finder tool and OMNINAS apps for Android and iOS offer additional convenience for use on the move."
Just like its larger brethren in the Shuttle NAS range, the KS10 offers simple server services for FTP, DLNA and iTunes. Also on board are functions such as Wake-On LAN, energy-efficient Ethernet and a scheduler for NAS operating time. The LEDs can be switched off for unobtrusive use in the home.
With a consumption of less than 6 W in standby mode and 12 W during normal operation it is a particularly frugal machine. The recommended retail price for the Shuttle OMNINAS KS10 is EUR 81.00 (ex VAT). The machine is available in Europe as of now.
