GN500 F1
Eco-friendly, cost-effective storage
The Gateway N500 F1 is a complete storage solution for SOHO and small businesses. It offers
centralized storage, secure file sharing, proactive information protection, and remote access from
anywhere via a web browser. With Microsoft® Windows® Home Server, the GN500 F1 unleashes a
user-friendly interface with powerful features including automated backup for up to 10 PC clients,
folder duplication, media streaming, power-saving scheduler, health, and performance monitoring.
The GN500 F1 comes with hot-pluggable HDDs, eSATA and USB 2.0 ports allowing flexible business
expansion to meet increasing data storage requirements.
Storage that grows with your business
The GN500 F1 supports up to 10 PC clients from the intranet or over the internet. What's more, users can access to four
hot-pluggable HDDs with up to 8 TB of storage capacity which can also be expanded by attaching external storage via the
eSATA and five USB 2.0 ports.
Simple, reliable data protection
This storage is exceptionally easy to set up thanks to the intuitive wizard interface which can be plugged into the network for
fast set up in just a few minutes — from there, Windows Home Server helps maintain and manage the system smoothly
and conveniently. The GN500 F1 can also be managed even when you're away from the office and connected over the
Internet. Plus, you can set up automatic data backup for each connected PC client.
Environment-friendly storage solution
The entire system draws a mere 220 W of power and is ENERGY STAR 5.0 compliant translating to power savings. And,
a low-power CPU provides the computing power necessary to deliver effective performance. To top it off, Gateway
proudly supports and participates in the Climate Savers Computing Initiative and 80 PLUS program for ecoconsciousness.
