NETGEAR Unveils Rack-Mount ReadyNAS 2100
Leading networking products manufacturer NETGEAR today announced the launch of ReadyNAS 2100, its new rack-mount product for small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs). The new system will allow SMBs to share, store and protect their critical files on both LAN and WAN networks.
The 1U 4-bay storage system comes with 2TB, 4TB and 8TB storage options in a rack-mount form factor. An easy-to-upgrade design and ease of backup and recovery makes the ReadyNAS 2100 an ideal solution for SMBs. The NAS can be used in mixed client environments and provides both entry-level server and desktop virtualisations.
ReadyNAS 2100 supports Windows, Linux as well as MAC OS files. The system is also equipped with enterprise-class hard drives and Error Correction Code (ECC) RAM memory.
“Combined with our existing ReadyNAS Pro and ReadyNAS NVX, the addition of a rack-mount solution broadens the SMB portion of our award-winning ReadyNAS storage line,” said Mark Song, product line manager for NETGEAR’s Network Storage Business Unit.
“We’re dedicated to providing a complete range of solutions for the SMB, and we’re extremely proud that our ReadyNAS unified architecture solves numerous data management problems with a single system, making capacity management, access, backup, restore and disaster recovery worries obsolete. With ReadyNAS, SMB network managers can eliminate common data concerns and revolutionize their storage environment without needing to become an expert,” he added.
Availability of the ReadyNAS 2100 begins in June and the system is likely to be priced at US$1,899.
