WD NetCenter offers 500GB
Western Digital today announced that its WD NetCenter network storage system is now available in a half-terabyte capacity and with backup and system recovery software. The 500GB backup solution offers a convenient way to store, share and back up data. WD's EasyLink, an exclusive WD setup wizard, "cuts installation time to less than five minutes. EasyLink establishes the WD NetCenter as if it were a local drive on any computer connected to the network. Individuals with network access then can store, share and back up their digital content." WD offers a user-friendly interface for EMC Retrospect Express 7.5 backup and recovery software, offering a three-step installation wizard and extensive data protection features, such as complete or progressive backups, automatic or scheduled backups, data encryption features, and disaster recovery. The $400 solution features a 7,200 rpm drive, a 10/100 Ethernet connection, two USB ports (for additional storage), and cross-platform software.
