Whether you're an IT expert or not, WD Sentinel is easy to install and provides secure centralized storage, complete data protection, and remote file access for your employees and trusted vendors while in the office or from anywhere. Featuring hard drives optimized for reliability, quality and performance, an Intel Atom processor, and the latest operating system, it delivers a reliable, secure and easy-to-manage storage server designed specifically for small office environments.
The easy set up process allows you to integrate WD Sentinel into your office network like a pro. The administration dashboard quickly guides you through the process including adding users, setting up data access, creating shared folders, and scheduling backups.
Replacing one of the pre-installed drives, or adding a new drive, is as easy as changing a light bulb. Just open the door and swap out the drives. WD Sentinel does the rest. It seamlessly migrates the server to the appropriate RAID level and automatically expands the server's storage capacity. Your users can still access your business data while the drive is being integrated. No data loss. No down time.
Secure remote access
WD Sentinel is perfect for businesses with employees working in satellite or home offices because you have the security of knowing all your business files are safely stored in one place and remote employees can access them from any computer with an Internet connection. WD Sentinel also performs automatic daily backups so all of the files on all the computers in your network are backed up and protected.
With dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, WD Sentinel DX4000 delivers read/write speeds up to 85 MB/s through the Gigabit Ethernet interface. That's three times faster than most network drives in this category today. For maximum flexibility there is also a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port to allow you to connect additional storage devices and experience up to 5 Gb/s transfer rates.
