Netgear ReadyNAS NVX 4-Bay Desktop Storage


NETGEAR’s 4-Bay Desktop Model Brings Double the NAS Performance, iSCSI Support and Support for Time Machine in Mac OS X

NETGEAR, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR) , a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, today announced the addition of several new 4-bay storage appliances to its award-winning family of ReadyNAS products for Small- to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs). 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. As with all ReadyNAS systems, the new NVX is extremely fast, easy-to-use and deploy, and affordable – ideal for resellers eager to solve customer needs for centralized storage and disaster recovery. NETGEAR will display its full line of ReadyNAS solutions in booth #800 at the Storage Networking World trade show in Orlando, Florida, April 6-9, 2009.

“NETGEAR is fully committed to providing the best possible networked storage solutions to the SMB market – offering a range of appliances that address different capacity requirements and thrifty IT budgets,” said Paul Tien, vice president and general manager of NETGEAR’s Networked Storage Business Unit. Mr. Tien will give a presentation at Storage Networking World on “Multi-layered Backup for SOHO and SMB.”

He added, “We’re extremely pleased to add iSCSI support to this new NVX platform so we can now provide a unified NAS+iSCSI storage option in a very compact desktop form factor at such an affordable price point to our hugely successful ReadyNAS line. Our ReadyNAS products have been praised by channel partners and end users alike for high performance, reliability, scalability, ease-of-use and, perhaps most importantly, overall value.”

NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS products have received high acclaim since their introduction to the market – winning such esteemed awards as CRN’s 2008 “Best Product of the Year” for storage and Small Business Computing’s 2009 “Excellence in Technology” award for network-attached storage, as chosen by readers.

ReadyNAS NVX 4-Bay Desktop Storage

Store: The ReadyNAS NVX – supporting both NAS and iSCSI – is an ideal desktop storage system for home offices, workgroups and small businesses. This entry-level SMB product 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. The ReadyNAS NVX simultaneously handles file sharing for Windows, UNIX/Linux and Mac systems and also stores data for server applications such as email, databases and virtualization.

Share: As a new feature, the ReadyNAS RAIDiator™ operating system works with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. NETGEAR’s 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. Now Mac users can leverage Time Machine to back up multiple Macs to a single location and can recover from disasters without expert assistance.

“With so many consumers, prosumers and small businesses now loyal fans of both NETGEAR and Apple products, we’re pleased to inform Mac enthusiasts that our new ReadyNAS products work with Time Machine,” said Drew Meyer, NETGEAR’s director of storage networking products. “Mac shops, popularly known for storing copious amounts of digital files, will now be able to fully realize the benefits of an industry-leading network-attached storage device that is expandable, and seamlessly interoperates with their current Mac backup utility.”

Protect: As with all ReadyNAS products, 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.

NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS NVX 4-Bay Desktop Storage is available now from value-added resellers at an estimated U.S. street price starting at $1,500 with 2 TB of storage. ReadyNAS appliances come with full 24/7 technical support and an industry-leading five-year warranty. In addition, a free 30-day trial of the ReadyNAS Vault internet backup service is available now on all ReadyNAS systems. U.S. pricing for the ReadyNAS Vault service starts at $5.95 per month for consumers and $19.95 per month for businesses.
