Dell PowerVault NX3240 NAS Storage

Small and midsized businesses will find the Dell PowerVault NX3240 to be a powerful, reliable, easy-to-use storage appliance that enables efficient and adaptable data sharing. Based on the R740xd rack server, the NX3240 supports both file (SMB and NFS) and block (iSCSI) protocols and is easily managed using the Microsoft server management interface (Server Manager) or Dell EMC’s iDRAC9.
