BNAS Family Model BC400 i5/16GB

2U Rack-mount BNAS 450

Our 3-Bay High-Rely BNAS 450 is a purpose built computer backup NAS system that features three removable media trays, which allows auto-mirroring from bay (1) to bay (2), with Windows Storage Server installed to an internal boot SSD. By utilizing our High-Rely classic media trays with the solid state drive on this Windows-based backup NAS system, it allows for backup and virtualization software to perform without delay, providing a speedy Backup & Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution. This backup and recovery system allows for rotation and automatic replication of your backup data. The BNAS 450 are Backup & Disaster Recovery devices running Windows Storage Server, with dual hot-swappable backup drives.

  • The BNAS 450 are rack-mounted. Equipped with a 2U form factor to minimize server room real estate.
  • The BNAS backup systems allow for rapid data restore over Gigabit Ethernet.
  • Boots from an easily accessible, front panel mounted SSD.
  • It takes less than one half of a day for the BNAS 450 to automatically mirror the internal drive after a media swap.
  • The unit comes equipped with three built-in receivers for our removable backup media. If you need to restore older media, we have included a third bay (the upper left bay), so you will not interrupt your existing backup setup during the restore.
  • Enough processing power to allow the unit to spin up your backup images in place using Oracle VM VirtualBox, Microsoft Hyper-V (included in some models), or similar virtualization software.
  • Imaging products like ShadowProtect, Acronis True Image, and Symantec Backup Exec also work well with the BNAS 400 platform.
  • Add your own virtualization, Backup, and Replication software to complete the solution.

Do you need to configure your own backup appliance? The Backup Network Attached Storage (BNAS) series is based on Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2016, which allows you to choose your own backup and virtualization software. Proprietahttp://www.high-rely.com/hr_66/windows-storage-server-2012-licensing/ry backup solutions lock you into their software, hard drive size, off-site vault location, and support. The BNAS 400 & 450 provides flexibility for you to configure your favorite backup software and even allows plugging in external USB 3 drives for more backup space. This 2U rack-mounted backup appliance allows mirroring between removable drives (purchase media separately as needed). Choose the upgraded multi-core CPUs with more RAM to support hardware virtualization.

Data retention is very important to us, which is why we built our removable backup drives to protect archived data in a durable tray enclosure. After all, what good is removable storage if it cannot be taken off-site? With the threat of maliciously deleted files and virus infections, natural disasters, such as fire, flood, or theft – removable media becomes a professional necessity. The use of off-line Removable Media is one of the BEST ways to assure data security because if it is not connected, it cannot be hacked, deleted, infected, maliciously encrypted, or downloaded! Our High-Rely NetSwap removable hard drives (media) provide the answer. All High-Rely warranties cover backup devices for one year. Extended dynamic support contracts are available for up to three years, with advance replacement – including shipping costs to and from our factory. The BNAS units comes equipped with two, or more, built-in receivers for our removable backup media. This backup system includes proprietary hardware that can automatically mirror up to two removable drive bays, which allows for rotation and automatic replication of your backup data. It takes less than half a day for the BNAS to automatically mirror the internal drive after a media swap. This means the customer can choose to manage and transport data off-site with no monthly fees, or add your favorite data replication software to create a third data copy in the cloud (ask us about recommended backup, virtualization, and off-site cloud vendors for a complete solution).

The BNAS family boots from an easily accessible, front panel 250GB SSD, and provides removable drives for your backup data. Depending on the configuration, a removable drive driven by our hardware based mirroring provides the ability to swap media and automatically create extra copies of data. This provides as many point-in-time, or archival, drives as are required. Mirroring occurs at approximately 200-300 Gigabytes per hour, so allow time for re-sync when swapping drives. Since the mirrored removable drive is managed via hardware, the backup software and operating system remain unaware of the extra drive copies. The mirrored removable drive also allows easy “seeding” of the off-site location. A seed is used when the data set is so large it would take weeks, or months, to get a full backup off-site, over an internet connection. Key features that differentiate the BNAS:

  • Based on a Windows Server OS. This Backup Appliance runs Windows 2016 storage server. CALS (Client access licenses) are not required for these operating systems. Join a domain and run any Windows backup software. Available with installed Windows Storage Server,  Workgroup.  Standard edition is an upgrade.
  • Windows Storage Server 2016 Workgroup runs 1 cpu-socket, max 50 users, max 32GB RAM, max 6 hard drives, and does not have a license to run hyper-V hosts.  The Standard addition adds dhcp/dns/wins, failover clustering, and Hyper-V support.
  • Integrated removable mirrored drives. Unlike any other NAS, the BNAS series includes two, or more, integrated hot-swappable drive trays that fully protects a copy of main data drive. A mirror board allows multiple archives of data, which protects against corruption of main data store.

Other key features of the BNAS:

  • Expandable. USB3 ports on back allow the rest of the High-Rely products to plug in.
  • Recoverable. Ships with USB key to recover the Windows operating system. If the SSD drive ever fails, it is easy to swap for a new one right from the front panel.
  • Software Flexibility. You choose and license your backup, and virtualization software.
  • Emergency Server. Powerful 64bit Intel processor running Windows storage server 2016 to host one or more “Virtual machines” during a disaster. Spin backup images up as VMs quickly and easily (requires third party backup and VM software). Choose model 52 or 53.
  • High performance. Capable of backup at almost three times the speed of consumer grade NAS appliances, due to a more robust processor.
  • iSCSI support. Windows Storage Server OS Includes Microsoft iSCSI target software license.
  • Serviceability. Uses standard parts in critical areas (i.e. the motherboard).
  • Note: Removable Media sold separately. See Media page here:
