Iomega's new StorCenter px12-350r is a rackmount network storage array (NAS) for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises. The px12-350r replaces the ix12-300r as Iomega's flagship rackmount NAS and comes loaded with 12 bays with support for up to 36TB, though SMBs can also opt to slap high performance solid state drives (SSDs) in there as well.
The 2U form factor rackmount NAS comes in two base configurations, one with four 2TB drives and another with four 3TB drives. Both of these sport an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor clocked at 3GHz, 4GB of DDR2 memory, four GbE LAN ports, RAID 0/1/10/5/6 support, iSCSI, three USB 2.0 ports (one front, two rear), full Hyper-V Live migration support, embedded AXIX Video Hosting System (AVHS), and according to Iomega, the px12-350r is also the only NAS in the world to support Avamar deduplicating backups.
Pricing starts at $6,000 for the 8TB model and $7,000 for the 12TB model. An 8TB expansion pack is available for $1,400, 12TB for $1,700, and 128GB SSDs for $400 each.
