TORRANCE, CA -- August 15, 2006 -- MicroNet Technology today announced the PlatinumNAS 3.0, providing the highest capacity in its class with three terabytes of network storage capacity for small and medium sized business customers.

The PlatinumNAS 3.0 is a compact, high-performance network storage solution that combines the latest SATA drive technology and high-availability hardware architecture with plug-and-play simplicity for data-intensive SMB applications. MicroNet’s latest NAS solution is smaller and lighter than competitive products and provides 50 percent higher capacity while consuming 35 percent less energy.

MicroNet’s PlatinumNAS 3.0 incorporates four hot-swappable 750-gigabyte SATA drives to deliver a 50 percent capacity boost compared to competitive products. PlatinumNAS 3.0 eliminates the complexities of daisy-chaining drive cables, allowing for simple, fault tolerant storage for small and medium businesses. When used in a RAID 5 configuration, all data remains accessible even in the event of a disk failure, which can then be replaced and rebuilt without any service interruption.

To provide maximum flexibility, PlatinumNAS 3.0 is equipped with dual-channel gigabit Ethernet connectivity, allowing multiple sub-networks and workgroups to access the server without impact to data throughput. The unit is powered by an Intel XScale 64-bit network storage processor, four discrete SATA 2+NCQ disk channels, 256 MB of write-back/write-through error correcting cache memory, assuring best-in-class performance. Multiple simultaneous network services including SMB/CIFS, FTP, webdisk, and Appleshare assure functionality and compatibility across Windows, UNIX and Apple platforms.

MicroNet Platinum products are available from authorized VARs, catalog resellers, and are distributed through Ingram Micro. MicroNet’s PlatinumNAS 3.0 is available immediately with a MSRP of $3,700.
