Stockton-on-Tees, UK (2nd August 2007) – LINDY Electronics announced today its latest enclosure designed especially to sit underneath a Mac Mini, the LINDY Mini NAS Enclosure. Compatible with standard 3.5” ATA hard drives, the NAS enclosure allows users to backup data and share files easily over a network or the internet, without the expense of a dedicated server.
The LINDY Mini NAS Enclosure has a built-in FTP server that allows up to five consecutive users to connect via FTP, support for Samba server with hosting for 64 online clients and a password protected browser based user interface for easy configuration. The NAS server connects to the network via a standard10/100 RJ-45 Ethernet connection and can be used by any Mac or PC computer.
“It’s inconvenient to always have computers turned on just to access shared files and for home users and small offices, the price of a full blown server including software is often too expensive to make it a viable option,” comments Andrew Ingram, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Our latest NAS enclosure is perfect for Mac Mini users who want to optimise file sharing, but don’t want to spoil the design of their machine or give up the extra space on their desks.”
The LINDY Mini NAS Enclosure has four different set-up options depending on user requirements. If the enclosure operates under a built-in DHCP server router, it will obtain an IP address from the DHCP server automatically. If it does not, then the enclosure will immediately act as a DCHP server and assign an IP address for installation. The enclosure also supports static IP addresses and allows the user to connect directly to a computer via USB, operating then only as a standard drive enclosure.
The LINDY Mini NAS Enclosure, part no 32487 is available now, RRP £64.99.
