NAS 7821

Consumer NAS SoC with dual-core processor and dual-SATA port


The NAS 7821 is a next generation media network-attached storage (NAS) device and is the successor to the OXE810DSE. Its unique Trident architecture includes dual-core ARM 11 MP (each core running at 750 MHz), application specific hardware engines for networking, storage, and security, as well as highly structured firmware for the highest performance at the lowest system cost. It is the ideal solution for media enabled consumer storage devices and supports multiple HD quality media files, remote access, back-up, security (including AES-128/256 bit encryption and hashing), file sharing, and much more. NAS 7821 provides two integrated SATA ports, hardware based RAID 0 and RAID 1, RGMII, and two USB 2.0 Host/Device ports supporting additional expansion capability such as USB HDDs.
