Sorry for not posting during the last week but lately i´m quite busy and I had a small trip to Belgium (that by the way i recommend it)….anyhow today I want to share with you about “TIME CAPSULE”.
Lately I had a lot of problems with my thing and I even lost some data from my computer with a backup (copy of my data) so that´s why today I will present you TIME CAPSULE, an wireless disk of course made by Apple and for the moment we can find it in two versions one of 2TB and the other one of 3TB.
Here you have a photo of this great device and a brief description.
The Time Capsule is a wireless network device sold by Apple Inc., featuring network-attached storage (NAS) and a residential gateway router. It is described as a “Backup Appliance”, designed to work in tandem with the Time Machine backup software utility introduced inMac OS X 10.5.
Introduced on January 15, 2008 and released on February 29, 2008, the device includes a full AirPort Extreme Base Station which features 802.11n wireless, one Ethernet WAN port, three Ethernet LAN ports, and one USB port. The USB port can be used for external peripheral devices to be shared over the network, such as external hard drives or printers. The NAS functionality utilizes a built-in “server grade” hard drive.
The currently available, fourth generation Time Capsule includes a fully featured, 802.11n, Wi-Fi access point including simultaneous dual-band operation. All clients sharing a single WiFi band must operate at the speed of the slowest client. Dual-band access points such as the Time Capsule allow segregation of clients in to two separate, but simultaneously operating, WiFi bands. One band is restricted to 802.11n clients, while clients using lower-speed standards such as 802.11g are placed on the second band. As the first band is exclusive to 802.11n clients, the presence of clients using slower standards does not impact the 802.11n clients. The Time Capsule supports the Sleep Proxy Service, a technology that allows clients to partially shutdown to conserve energy, yet still be responsive to network traffic.
Hardware interfaces on the Time Capsule include four Gigabit Ethernet ports (3 LAN ports, and 1 WAN port), and a USB interface for external peripheral device sharing. Commonly connected peripherals include printers and external hard drives.A built-in fileserver that supports both AFP and SMB provides network access to files stored on the built-in hard drive. The 7.6.1 Time Capsule firmware enables remote access of the harddisk with an iCloud account. In the past, users needed a MobileMe account to remotely access data. Fourth generation models are available with 2 TB and 3 TB of built-in storage.
So enjoy with this new product…for more details like always you can visit www.apple.com
