D-Link Announces 16 TB Home Cloud NAS

By - Source: D-Link | B 14 comments

D-Link's latest NAS comes with a built-in web file server and a secure FTP server to provide file access over the Internet.

The Cloud Storage 4000 can be equipped with up to fourth 3.5-inch HDDs for a total capacity of 16 TB of storage space to cover the needs of a home cloud solution. According to the manufacturer, the device can hook up to D-Link's cloud cameras and turn into a network video recorder and playback device.

It also creates a portal that can be accessed via iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Microsoft Mobile OS products. Filesharing is enabled via the integrated ShareCenter application. Two-way data syncing is supported as well.

The NAS is available for $450.

    Personal cloud is really a neat idea as it circumvent the need for big storage on mobile devices. But as long as data cap exist, cloud storage solution like this will never be widely used by home user.
    But then, if you can afford a $450 Cloud NAS plus extra hundreds for the disks, then unlimited data plan price is no longer a concern to you.

    We do A/V production (no, not THAT kind...).
    Filling up 16TB is unfortunately no problem if you are shooting low compression HD.

    As someone that started to look nas solution for home server, was wondering about what's the connection speed and how many users can access it without losing speed both on the disk & network side? And for $450, what's the upside of this product vs. homebuilt such as freenas (other than initial time needed to learn to set up the freenas, of course)

    well... lets first go with porn
    than lets also go high res raw photo storage
    lets also add in uncompressed files (textures and such, for useing in photos)
    lets also go in with rip and encode all the movies i own, so thats 700mb to 2gb a movie right there, and a large collection... that can be high up there
    games and making backup copies of all your games, in case they ever break
    and lets lastly go into just video production, whether you capture from a webcam/games/or full low/uncompressed hd, that crap takes up a crap ton of space no matter what.

    and all that is without going into illegal things you can do with it. which i believe you were alluding to.

    My Bluray collection has been neatly backed up so I can watch it through the network on XBMC, that's a lot of storage space, this could suit me perfectly, 300 movies hovering around 6Tb already and i'm always going to kepp getting more

    Probably don't want to own one of those if you're paranoid the FBI might be lookin' for you. LOL (porn)

    Really though, this would be really neat to have for home built DVRs and FTPs. Backups, too.

    Any 4 port NAS that can take 4Tb drives is well priced in this range, the FTP function is nice but not essential for my usage, this just comes in very handy as long term secure storage in the attic at the end of a CAT6

    For my Movie and TV shows collection, it would be filled in a few short days.

    I currently have close to that, and is nowhere near enough. (for me at least)

    I just don't care for the "cloud" thing.

    This article's title is EXTREMELY misleading. When you advertise a NAS as 16 TB... that would insinuate that the hard drives are included. D-Link is at least responsible and advertises their product as “ShareCenter 4-Bay Cloud Storage 4000”.

    I also reviewed D-Links ShareCenter 4000’s web literature and D-Link NEVER makes any reference to “16 TB”. In fact, the product’s Specifications page states: “4 SATA I/II/III 3.5-inch hard drive bays, supports hard drive capacities up to 3 TB”. So 4 bays x 3 TB = 12 TB

    Minor grammar correction, "up to fourth" should read "up to four".
