I followed the instructions for "easy setup." The Sentinel never got past the message on the LCD displaying "Loading OS . . . Please Wait." The instructions said it might "Take a few minutes" for the OS to load. I waited 24 hours. I called WD, and tech support gave me the impression that I should wait indefinitely because it would eventually load the OS. That REALLY creates a lot of confidence in WD's products. Ha!!!

Product Overview

Plug-and-play installation

The easy set up process allows you to integrate WD Sentinel into your office network like a pro. The administration Dashboard quickly guides you through the process including adding users, setting up data access, creating shared folders and scheduling backups.

Easy maintenance

Adding or replacing one of the pre-installed drives is as easy as changing a light bulb. Just open the door and swap out the drives and WD Sentinel does the rest. It seamlessly migrates the server to the appropriate RAID level and automatically expands the server’s storage capacity. Your users can still access your business data while the drive is being integrated. No data loss. No down time.

Secure remote access

WD Sentinel is perfect for businesses with employees working in satellite or home offices because you have the security of knowing all your business files are safely stored in one place and remote employees can access them from any computer with an Internet connection. WD Sentinel also performs automatic daily backups so all of the files on all the computers in your network are backed up and protected.

Realtime system status through the administration Dashboard

View realtime updates for drive, RAID and network status through WD Sentinel's Dashboard, which includes easy-to-use task wizards to help you set backup schedules, administer user accounts and manage public and private shares.

Stream digital media anywhere in your network

With the built-in DLNA media server your employees can access any shared media libraries on the network rather than maintaining copies on their individual computers. You can also stream digital content like videos, music or digital signage for employees, vendors or clients using remote web access.

Leading-edge performance

With dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, WD Sentinel DX4000 delivers read speeds up to 85 MB/s through the Gigabit Ethernet interface. That's three times faster than most network drives in this category today. For maximum flexibility there are also 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports that allow you to connect additional storage devices and experience up to 5Gb/s transfer rates.
