Iomega has announced a quad-drive desktop NAS appliance (StorCenter ix4-200d) aimed at small to medium sized businesses the company promises will offer oodles of storage without thrashing your piggy bank.
On the setup side, Iomega says you can be "up and running in a matter of four mouse clicks and a few minutes." Once configured, you'll have access to up 8TB of networked storage (4TB and 2TB capacities also available).
The StorCenter works with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux PCs and supports a number features. These include iSCSI block-level access, device-to-device replication to network targets (useful for file recovery), various RAID configurations, Windows Active Directory support, remote access and management, IP security camera support, and a new front-panel LCD and QuickTransfer button for one-touch copying duties.
The 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB models are all available now for $700, $900, and $1,900 respectively.
