About this item

The WD 6TB Sentinel DX4000 Small Office Storage Server is a reliable, manageable, high-performance solution for storing your data and keeping it available on your network. With a capacity of 6.0 TB, configured as 2 x 3.0 TB, the Sentinel saves your data on Enterprise-class RE (RAID Edition) hard drives and can configure that data in a RAID 1 or 5 configuration (Pre-configured RAID 1). In addition, it also supports hot-swapping when you want to expand drives and can migrate your data to the appropriate RAID level. The Sentinel features dual Gigabit Ethernet connections.

Whether you're an IT expert or a novice, the plug-and-play WD Sentinel is simple to install and offers secure centralized storage, complete data protection and remote file access for your employees and trusted vendors from the office or anywhere--without the complexity and cost of a VPN solution. Once it's set up, the Sentinel intelligently manages drive and network status, cutting down on maintenance time and allowing you to focus on your business. Use this storage solution for your PC desktop or laptop or your Mac laptop.
