Centralized Storage and File Sharing
Cross-platform Sharing with Antivirus
The Turbo NAS supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. User accounts and shared folders can be create d via the user-friendly web-based interface without IT expertise. The integrated antivirus solution for the Turbo NAS ensures business continuity by offering detection against the latest viruses, malware, worms, and Trojan horses.
Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service
The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service features enable the IT administrator to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the Turbo NAS, reducing time and effort in account setup. Users can use the same login name and password to access the Turbo NAS.
Shared Folder Aggregation
Access the shared folders of other servers on Microsoft Networking through the "portal folder" on the Turbo NAS. This saves the time and effort in logging in multiple servers one by one.
ISO File Archiving and Sharing
The Turbo NAS supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as network shares for data archiving, storage, and sharing. This feature saves the space for storing the physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing, and enhances the efficiency of data sharing on business network.
The Windows ACL (access control list) feature offers sophisticated shared folder permission settings and thus simplifies IT management for businesses with a large number of users. By enabling the Windows ACL, basic permissions and 13 advanced permissions can be set up from the Windows Explorer and synchronized with the permission settings of the Turbo NAS. In addition, the same permissions apply to AFP, FTP, Web File Manager, and Samba when Advanced Folder Permissions are enabled at the same time.
Advanced Folder Permissions
Advanced folder permissions allow users to configure folder/subfolder access to the Turbo NAS. With this feature enabled, users can manage the folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management interface of the Turbo NAS easily.
