PR:
Available in North America through its branch office in August 2012 for the recommend retail price of US$169.95, the Giada MI-NAS25 is driven by Intel's nimble Atom Cedar Trail technology and supported by up to 4GB of memory.

The backbone of the MI-NAS25's specially-designed data storage subsystem is the Marvell 88SE9230 RAID controller, which supports ultra-high speed 6.0 Gbps SATA disks. This system features hardware RAID 0, 1, and 10 to increase performance and protect against data loss, even if a disk fails.

Up to six SATA disks can be connected directly to the motherboard. The Marvel 88SE9230 supports four 6.0 Gbps SATA drives, and the Intel NM10 chipset handles an additional two 3.0 Gbps SATA drives. In addition, 2 USB 2.0 sockets can be used for additional lower-speed storage if required. The PCIe 1x slot can provide further storage expandability possibilities, as well as wireless networking and other upgrade options.

To keep data moving across the network uninterrupted, the MI-NAS25 has not one, but two Gigabit LAN sockets, driven by the fast and reliable Intel 82583V Gigabit Ethernet Controller chip. This system supports Ethernet 802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab with great stability.
