Netgear today announced the addition of a new ReadyNAS NVX model. According to Netgear, the 4-bay storage solution "offers double the performance" of previous NV+ units.
"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."
New features being touted with the NAS box includes the addition of iSCSI support for a unified NAS+SCSI storage option and an improved ReadyNAS RAIDiator operating system, which Netgear says now works with Time Machine in Max OS X Leopard.
Netgear says the new ReadyNAS NVX is available now from "value-added resellers," with street pricing to start at around $1,500 with 2TB of storage. That includes a 30-day trial to the company's ReadyNAS Vault internet backup service, after which will run $5.95/month for consumers or $19.95/month for businesses.
