Just in time to meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises and home users to store large amounts of data, the Giada technology company has launched the GIADA N70E-DR motherboard, perfect for building entry-level NAS servers. With a NASserver built upon the Giada N70E-DR, customerscan achieve a low-cost implementation for file sharing, data backup andmedia server functionality all whileenjoying professionalserverfunctions, high-capacity,high-reliability, and highperformance data security.The compact and powerful MiniITXboard design, takes up only17x17cm in space and sports aRichcomponent interface. With thepowerful integrated architecture ofIntel’s Ivy Bridge, the Celeron C1007U processors feature performance with powerconsumption at only 17W.
The motherboard’s chipset supports native RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, with data security protection. Dual high-performance Intel 82583V Gigabit Ethernet ports ensure efficient network channel operations. Intelligent hardware monitoring andmanagement capabilities allow customers to keep abreast of the health of the system. With a TPM module one can effectively prevent variousscenarios of illegal data access.
The GIADA N70E-DR motherboard was designed with long-term stability in mind. As such, the entireboard uses high-quality solidcapacitors with are totallyenclosed with nickel coreinductors. The board uses high-quality Power PAK MOS FETs. This helps toguarantee the system has stable operation over a long period of time.
Small mini-ITX motherboardsare wonderful for keeping thetotal build small and organized and they draw very little power. How does the GIADA N70E-DRmotherboard differ from the others?
One problem is, often times mini-ITX boardsoften don’t have all the advanced features you would want – for example many boards onlyhave only two SATA ports. The GIADA N70E-DR provides six SATA Interfaces (two of whichare SATA3.0) with native RAID 0, 1, 5, 10.
The board features 2 USB 3.0 high-speed data interface ports. There is also intelligent hardware monitoring and management functions such as the chassis out of the box alarm; CPU overheating alarm; and the abnormal power state alarm. For data security the board provides a set of TPM pins for an optional TPM module for data security protection.
To build a great, but cost efficient, NAS server simply start with the GIADA N70E-DR motherboard and install a popular NAS operating system like FreeNAS, the most popular option for user-built NAS systems. It’s a free, open-source project that is easy to use and provides the features most users need. It’s a great combo for a powerful solution.
