April 27, 2009

NETGEAR, a worldwide provider of technologically advanced, branded networking and storage products, has launched ReadyNAS NVX, a 4-bay desktop network-attached storage solution designed for small and medium businesses (SMBs). The new easy-to-use and deploy product offers advanced network-attached storage (NAS), thereby facilitating users' capacity to securely store, share and protect business-critical data across a LAN or WAN, guard against disk failures, and grow capacity as needed. Extremely fast and affordable, the new ReadyNAS NVX is ideal for resellers whose business is to provide centralised storage and disaster recovery to SMB customers.

Supporting both NAS and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), ReadyNAS NVX is an ideal desktop storage system for home, offices, workgroups and small businesses. This entry-level SMB product enables end users to centralise data from local systems into a single device, and solve problems around capacity growth, remote access, and backup without IT expertise. The solution also simultaneously handles file sharing for Windows, UNIX/Linux and Mac systems, and has the capacity to support Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), Bonjour software technology and dashboard widgets for status monitoring.

"We are fully committed to providing the best possible networked storage solutions to the SMB market, as evident in our wide array of solutions that address different capacity requirements and varying IT budgets," said Ahmad Zeidan, Channel Sales Manager, NETGEAR Middle East. "Our ReadyNAS products have been praised by channel partners and end users alike for high performance, reliability, scalability, ease-of-use and, perhaps most importantly, overall value. We are confident that ReadyNAS NVX will be appreciated by the target market, and we are anticipating active movement for the product in the region within the coming months."

The solution also includes multiple layers of protection for data including drive fault tolerance (RAID), local USB backups, online backups (snapshots), and secure offsite replication to other ReadyNAS systems. In addition, the embedded ReadyNAS Vault option also lets users automatically archive to an Internet datacentre and recover from any web browser. Offered with a full 24/7 technical support and an industry-leading life warranty, the ReadyNAS NVX comes with a free 30-day trial of the ReadyNAS Vault internet backup service.

"The SMB sector is a key market for storage vendors as it shows continuous overall growth and an increasing need for simple solutions that will help players handle an ever-increasing amount of data across their networks. Our role in this scenario is to provide SMBs with network-attached storage devices that offer innovative ways to help companies deal with the complexities of storage management, which will prove to be effective while remaining cost-efficient," concluded Zeidan.
