<p>World’s First Scalable NAS Solution to Break the A$10/GB Barrier</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – October 14, 2003 – Snap Appliance, the world leader in network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, breaks new ground in scalable, affordable NAS technology with the introduction of the Snap Disk 10 – a 1U, one terabyte expansion array engineered for use with the award-winning Snap Server® 4500. By providing up to 3TB of native capacity in only 3U of rack space, this unbeatable combination offers businesses an affordable way to scale storage infrastructure, without increasing management complexity.</p>
<p>The Snap Disk 10 perfectly addresses the cost, complexity and manageability challenges companies face today due to explosive storage growth. IT staff can easily justify the business case – simple, cost-effective and non-disruptive scalability as terabytes of storage capacity are added.</p>
<p>"Scalability is an important element for almost any storage solution," said Brad Nisbet, senior storage analyst, IDC. "By adding capacity with the Snap Disk 10, customers now have an option to protect the investment they’ve made in the Snap Server 4500, without increasing management complexity."</p>
<p>The Snap Disk 10 leverages the architecture of the 4500 to deliver high performance, cross-platform data storage, backup and recovery. With four hot swappable disk drives, RAID and antivirus protection, the Snap Disk 10 offers continuous availability of business-critical data, along with benefits such as Snapshot technology and data replication for reliable backup and recovery.</p>
<p>“Snap Appliance is focused on becoming the global leader of simple, scalable storage solutions from the edge to the enterprise,” says Eric Kelly, CEO of Snap Appliance. “The Snap Disk 10 clearly shows our commitment to delivering on this vision.”</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
