Netgear announced the addition of a new, high-density network storage system to its family of ReadyNAS products for SMBs. The ReadyNAS 3200 is a 2U 12-bay unified storage platform that provides up to 24 terabytes in a single system.
The system offers features such as redundant power supplies and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports at an SMB price point, enabling growing businesses to securely share, store and protect business-critical network data. With support for up to 24 TB of capacity, making it ideal for online server consolidation or backup, the ReadyNAS 3200 solves common SMB storage problems. Server virtualization, file sharing, disk-based backup and building first-time iSCSI SANs are natural solutions for the ReadyNAS 3200.
The ReadyNAS 3200 combines the features of the other ReadyNAS for Business products, including the recently launched ReadyNAS 2100 1U rack-mount and the ReadyNAS Pro and NVX desktop systems, with a massive capacity platform for sharing, storing and protecting SMB data. Featuring 12 bays that enable up to 24 terabytes of NAS and iSCSI SAN capacity, the ReadyNAS 3200 supports up to 250 users.
Standard features such as Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software for automatic client backup functionality and the ReadyNAS Remote drag-and-drop remote file sharing utility mean easy and effective remote site data management for IT managers. And the embedded ReadyNAS Vault service delivers an optional cloud-based backup and disaster recovery services for $.25/GB/month.
The ReadyNAS 3200 leverages the ReadyNAS RAIDiator operating system. The RAIDiator operating system supports the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), enabling native Mac files to be used without restrictions or limitations, as well as Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. The ReadyNAS 3200 also offers support for file services (NAS) and application services (iSCSI) for Windows, UNIX/Linux and Mac systems.
The ReadyNAS 3200 can come equipped with 6TB, 12TB and 24TB of storage capacity. The solution’s estimated U.S. street price starts at $4,999.
