How to change the HDDs


We Got Served 5/2011
Now at  € 995.00, I’m not saying that HFX’s new PowerNAS 2011 home server is cheapest WHS 2011 hardware available, but it’s most definitely the coolest looking model I’ve seen so far.



HFX PowerNAS 2011 - easy, compact and silent

How secure is your data?
Music, photos, videos and important files are often stored on the hard drives of different computers. One can easily lose the overview where what is stored, and if a hard disk fails, the data is irremediably lost.

More storage than ever before...
By using high quality hard drives, up to 20 TB can be made easily available in your home network, accessible for all network users. In total, five hard disks can be simply and comfortably added or exchanged in the RAID hot-swap modus.

More secure than ever before...
The HFX PowerNAS can be used as back-up solution for several computers and as extremely secure data storage vault. He supports all current RAID functions, to prevent loss of data: RAID 1 with full redundancy, as well as RAID0 for full speed and hybrid forms like RAID 0+1, RAID 5 and more.

More silent than ever before...
While other NAS equipped with fans are loud and dusty, the HFX PowerNAS is the first NAS with our patented passive hard disk cooling technology. Big cooling rips on the sides ensure an optimum temperature. Integrated security fans only become active in case of necessity.


Equiped with the new Windows Home Server 2011 software from Microsoft.
Digital photography, music, video, and documents from multiple PCs are centrally stored and can be easily protected, organized, and connected - from every computer on the home network. The user has full access to his files, even while away from home, with the built-in secure and personalized
website address. With the WHS 2011, the user can easily extend the capabilities of the server using software add-ins and expand storage capacity with up to 4TB hard drives. DLNA video, picture and audio servers are already installed, additional server services like Logitech, Bittorrent are easy to install, and Apple devices are fully supported.
