The Solution

DCS provides enterprise integrated networking services to companies worldwide. Their staff consists of professional software development engineers, technical support and administrative staff for a total of more than 10 employees. Their company uses a mixed environment of Windows and Linux servers. To solve incompatibility issues, DCS Networks chose ASUSTOR as it supports cross-platform file management. Neil Kang, IT Manager at DCS said "Compared with other NAS devices currently used by the company, the AS6404T is the best choice for us. We love how the AS6404T uses an Intel quad-core processor and 8GB of memory to provide stable operation and high speed file transfers, which enhances the productivity of our engineers.”

In addition, the user interface of Asustor’s ADM, the operation system of the AS6404T, is simple and easy to learn. Mr Kang stated that he likes it a lot due to its simplicity. Initialization of the NAS only requires a few steps by following the setup wizard. After completing the installation, each feature and icon are clearly marked on the home page. Afterwards, apps can be accessed by clicking on the relevant icon to use the features of the NAS without wasting time looking for what he needs, helping him save a lot of valuable time.

The AS6404T has 4 hard disk bays. DCS chose to set up their NAS in a RAID 5 configuration to balance data security and storage costs. In addition to access rights for each folder, the AS6404T also provides folder encryption allowing Mr Kang is able to encrypt critical folders such as financial reports and strictly control access to those files, protecting the most confidential assets of their company.

As a centralized storage and backup center, AS6404T empowers users with its simplicity, RAID settings, seamless cross-platform file access and sharing, complete two-way backup and expandability functionality. Finally, the overall performance and stability of this NAS makes it the best choice for DCS Networks. Mr Kang recommended the NAS to the company and they are all satisfied with its performance.

DCS Executive Director, Apollo Weng said: "ASUSTOR is an associated company of ASUSTeK. We always trust the quality and service from ASUSTeK. After careful assessment, we are very pleased to recommend this cost-effective ASUSTOR NAS to our future customer base.”
