D-Link Announces Integrated Cloud Backup for Its ShareCenter Storage Solution

D-Link's Award-Winning ShareCenter Network Attached Storage Enhanced With Cloud-Based Service Powered by CTERA Networks.

Jun 16, 2010 - D-Link, the worldwide leader in innovative home and business networking, and CTERA™ Networks, an innovator in cloud storage services, today announced that the D-Link® ShareCenter™ Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution (DNS-323) has been enhanced with an integrated online backup service by CTERA.

Ideal for the data protection needs of “prosumers” and home offices, the online backup service safeguards against data loss and enables data recovery in case of disaster.

The online backup service offers D-Link 2-Bay ShareCenter users built-in offsite data protection that doesn’t require PC software installation and works automatically directly from the NAS appliance. Differential backups and data compression are used to ensure quick and efficient backup. Users can automatically and securely back up data to reliable cloud storage and recover and access their files using a Web browser from anywhere, at any time. They can also roll back their stored files to previous versions, up to 30 days old.

“We are excited to extend the value of D-Link’s highly acclaimed DNS-323 by offering CTERA’s cloud-based data protection services,” said Chris Gruber, director, D-Link product line management, Storage. “With this cloud storage service fully-integrated with our hardware, we are continuing to offer D-Link customers the utmost in connectivity and disaster recovery with ease-of-use.”

Unlike existing PC-based online backup services, the solution does not limit data backup to a single PC. Rather, it lets users backup all their important files from any PC to their D-Link DNS-323 NAS unit and safeguard them locally and remotely on the “cloud”, with no limitations on file size, file type or the number of PCs on the network.

The DNS-323 is part of the D-Link ShareCenter product line that provides greater performance, flexibility and protection against content loss than ordinary external hard drives.
