BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Visionman Computers ("Visionman"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Silicon Mountain Holdings, Inc. and manufacturer of servers, workstations and notebooks for small business and home users, today announced the availability of their second generation NAS appliances. These Smart Media storage and management devices make it easy for any family, user group or business to organize, share, access and protect their digital assets including: music, video, digital libraries, photographs, business records and confidential data.

The new VisionVault Smart Media NAS appliances integrate a low-power, system-on-chip ARM CPU with an embedded Linux operating system to deliver flexible, secure, high-speed file services via an advanced SATA II interface. The VisionVault VM200 and VM400 models deliver 3.0 Gigabits-per-second maximum throughput and a feature-set that has been tuned and optimized for storage convenience including automatic backup, remote access support and advanced digital media services.

"The advent of broadband and the ever-increasing digital demands of home and small business users are driving the need for easy-to-use and affordable network attached storage," said Shaun Hanner, COO at Silicon Mountain. "Our new VM200 and VM400 appliances redefine the NAS category, allowing any small group up to 20 users to organize, share, access and protect their digital assets. Studies show that the average American home will have around 10 Terabytes of digital content by 2012 and that our Smart Media NAS appliances will play a vital role in bringing together and protecting all the elements of their digital lives."

The two-drive VM200 NAS appliance offers up to 2 Terabytes of storage in a compact form factor, supporting RAID 0, 1 and span options; the four-drive VM400 NAS solution offers up to 4 Terabytes of storage in a hot-swappable form factor that also includes RAID 5 support for additional reliability.

Both VisionVault models support Windows, Linux and Mac file systems. In addition, these Smart Media NAS appliances can be configured as a digital media server, iTunes server or allow peer-to-peer networking for easy file sharing via FTP and HTTP.

For the system administrator, Active Directory integration, critical event alerts, user quota control, USB storage, print server functionality, large file support and advanced security options are built in.

The new Visionman VisionVault Smart Media NAS appliances will be available for shipment on January 22, 2008 from a large network of VARS and E-tailers, including TigerDirect.com.
