New storage solution from Netgear: ReadyNAS NVX
Netgear announced the addition of several new 4-bay storage appliances to its family of ReadyNAS products. The ReadyNAS NVX, which is designed for home offices, workgroups and small businesses, offers double the performance of previous NV+ units, support for file services (NAS) and application services (iSCSI SAN) for Windows, UNIX/Linux and Mac systems, including support for Time Machine in Mac OS X v 10.5 Leopard.
It enables users to securely store, share and protect business-critical data across a LAN or WAN, guard against disk failures, and grow capacity as needed.
ReadyNAS NVX 4-Bay Desktop Storage:
- Store: The ReadyNAS NVX supporting both NAS and iSCSI enables end users to centralize data from local systems into a single device and solve problems around capacity growth, remote access, backup and disaster recovery all without IT expertise. It handles file sharing for Windows, UNIX/Linux and Mac systems and also stores data for server applications such as email, databases and virtualization
- Share: ReadyNAS RAIDiator operating system works with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. ReadyNAS devices continue to support the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), enabling native Mac files to be used without restrictions or limitations; Apple’s Bonjour software technology for auto-discovery of the device over a user’s LAN; and dashboard widgets for status monitoring
- Protect: the NVX includes multiple layers of protection for data including drive fault tolerance (RAID), local USB backups, online backups (snapshots), and secure offsite replication to other ReadyNAS systems. And the embedded ReadyNAS Vault option lets users automatically archive to an Internet datacenter and recover from any web browser.
The ReadyNAS NVX 4-Bay Desktop Storage street price starts at $1,500 with 2 TB of storage.
