ASUSTOR Inc. has announced today that it will be exhibiting at Computex 2013, the second largest consumer electronics show in the world.

The new 3 Series uses the latest Intel SoC (System on Chip) which is designed for home multimedia use. It also features an HDMI interface along with a built-in infrared receiver that allows for it to be used with a remote control. The available models in this series are the 2-bay AS-302T model and the 4-bay AS-304T model. ASUSTOR will also be unveiling its newly styled ADM 2.0 operating system along with 2 new mobile apps. These 2 apps are AiData, which can be used to remotely browse and access data on an ASUSTOR NAS and AiMaster, which can be used to remotely monitor and manage a NAS.
The 6 Series
All of ASUSTOR’s AS 6 Series devices come equipped with an Intel® Atom™ 2.13 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory (expandable up to 3GB). The devices also feature SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and eSATA ports along with support for SATA III and SSD hard disks. Dual GbE Ethernet ports provide support for link aggregation and blazing fast transfer speeds of over 200 MB/s. All devices in the series are also verified as being VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready. Business-ready features such as two-way transfer support, AES-256 bit shared folder encryption, and video surveillance make the 6 Series an optimal choice for small to medium sized businesses that are looking for a flexible and cost-effective virtual storage solution.
The 3 Series
The 3 Series features a new platform that is based on the latest Intel SoC (System on Chip) which integrates a dual-core Atom™ processor with a handful of media processing units and communication interfaces. The devices also feature an HDMI interface that provides HD audio-visual output which allows the NAS to become a high quality multimedia player. The built-in infrared receiver allows users to use a remote control to control the multimedia playback on the NAS. Further pairing the NAS with a stereo amplifier truly allows users to create a one-stop home entertainment center. Users can also download any NAS Apps of their choice from ASUSTOR’s App Central. App offerings include: Download Center, iTunes Server, Surveillance Center, Dropbox, SABnzbd and more. In addition to being used as a digital entertainment center, the 3 Series can also be used as a full featured private cloud storage server that is able to safely store all of the users’ ever-expanding digital multimedia content.
ADM (ASUSTOR Data Master) is an operating system designed exclusively for use with all ASUSTOR NAS devices. Different from traditional NAS operating systems, ADM was designed using an App-based concept that provides a user experience closely resembling the simplicity that can be found on most tablet computers. It features an elegant web-based user interface that is intuitive and easy to use, bridging the gap between user and machine. ADM provides users with a bevy of convenient features such as Dr. ASUSTOR which performs health checkups on the NAS, automatic firmware updates, and Cloud Connect technology which allows users easily connect their NAS to the internet, creating their own personal cloud.
Newly updated version includes:
▪ Fresh new interface: Now more user-friendly than ever, the updated user interface features support for the uploading of custom background images, the all new “My Favorites” function and dramatically increased browsing speed.
▪ Searchlight: An industry first, Searchlight allows users to quickly find files, folders and applications on the NAS and also provides support for fuzzy searches.
▪ FTP Explorer: A built-in FTP client that allows the NAS to directly browse files from any FTP sites and also featuring support for drag and drop file transfers.
▪ SoundsGood: A Web music player that allows users to stream the music from their NAS through a Web browser. SoundsGood also allows an ASUSTOR NAS to be turned into a digital audio player with thousands of songs after directly connecting the NAS to an amplifier or DAC/USB speakers.
▪ Photo Gallery: Allows users to set up their own personal web photo album in just one easy step, helping users share their lives with family and friends.
Newly Added Mobile Apps (Supports iOS and Android Mobile Devices)
