SMB Network Storage Application Kit
Many design engineers are seeking high-capacity data storage that is not limited to the physical constraints of memory integrated into current embedded designs. Removable memory such as USB memory and flash cards still suffer from the problem of being located on-site, making them vulnerable to flood, fire or theft. Rabbit solves this problem with the SMB Network Storage Application Kit.
The SMB (Server Message Block) Network Storage Application Kit enables a RabbitCore® module to use the SMB protocol, more commonly known as Windows File Sharing, for a high-capacity storage space over a network connection.
The de facto file and printer sharing system in use today, an SMB server shares file and printer resources over a computer network, allowing for flexibility and scalability. Once set up, a RabbitCore module can act as an SMB client and remotely store files and use them according to their purpose. The SMB Application Kit allows you to add an SMB server to a Rabbit-based system that enables file sharing.
Included in the SMB Network Storage Application Kit is a 250 GB network storage drive that can act as a remote file server. Sample programs demonstrate how to add, delete, edit and rename files on the server by providing an interactive command-line shell.
