    Thanks for posting this, Ganesh! I have been very happy with Addonics storage enclosures. The feature mix may seem unusual, but the price lets me integrate these things into applications for local schools, home business etc. The addition of transparent encryption could simplify things even more.

    Nifty, so someone with physical access can, regardless of security features, just walk up and flip a couple of dip switches and destroy your volume. Reply

    I believe the target market for Addonics with this product is where data security in terms of access by unauthorized personnel is paramount. RAID is not backup, anyway. What Addonics guarantees is that when the cipher key is not present, no one can get the data from the drives -- they don't guarantee that the data can't be destroyed. Reply

    This is kind of "duh": anyone with physical access to your hardware can destroy it, whether it's this NAS or any other. That's why you restrict physical access. Reply
