0Overall Score

A six-bay desktop network-attached storage solution for small- and medium-sized businesses that provides up to 6TB of network-attached storage. This enables SMBs with up to 200 users to store, back up and share digital data across the LAN or WAN from a combination of Windows, Macintosh and Linux platforms, claims Netgear.

The ReadyNAS Pro product line is available in storage capacities of 1.5TB, 3TB and 6TB.

“Small- and medium-sized businesses have been yearning for a tailor-made storage solution to help them better manage their ever-increasing volumes of digital information,” says Ryan Parker, managing director, NETGEAR Australia. “The ReadyNAS Pro family has the capacity and scalability of a true business-class solution that will help smaller businesses backup and protect their critical information today, and provide additional capacity as their storage needs grow.”

Parker says that SMBs looking to replace their traditional file and print servers should seriously consider the ReadyNAS Pro.
The ReadyNAS Pro supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and auto-expandable X-RAID2 to provide solid data protection against single or double disk failure. It features dual redundant Gigabit Ethernet ports for failover protection, which ensures availability to stored data. Housed in a compact desktop form factor, the ReadyNAS Pro products support up to six SATA II hard drives via six lockable, hot-swappable disk trays. Three USB 2.0 ports enable the connection of external USB drives, printers and battery backup devices.

With an Intel dual-core processor, ReadyNAS Pro can read data at over 108 MBps and writing at over 102 MBps. In addition to a Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) and setup wizard for ease-of-use and setup, ReadyNAS Pro features an LCD display that provides quick and intuitive system status readings. It incorporates active system monitoring that continually monitors for abnormal situations or part failures, and emails system alerts to the network administrator.
