Software Features

NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One complements the other in a balanced product. You need greater hardware performance to run more software features simultaneously.

ASUSTOR's ADM software package is the same on the AS7004T 4-bay system as it is on the company's larger flagship models, so you don't lose any software features.

This model includes support for AES 256-bit folder encryption, and uses the EXT4 file system for the internal array. The system can support several disk configurations, including RAID 6, RAID 5, RAID 10, RAID 0, and JBOD. Most users will want to run the 4-bay system in RAID 5. This level gives users single drive fault tolerance, but also greater write performance and disk capacity than RAID 6.

On the bottom of the same page we just linked to, you will find a list of optional software package that can be installed on the AS7004T. We didn't find anything missing from the massive list, and all are provided free of charge. The IP based management system allows you to install as many additional features as you would like with just a few clicks, and minimum configuration time.
