New Iomega StorCenters
Iomega has released three new drives in its StorCenter line, specifically within the subset of its Network Hard Drive models. These are designed to operate as media and print servers, but can handle other roles as well, due to features such as Active Directory support, a journaling file system and backup software in the form of EMC Retrospect Express. The top-of-the-line 1TB drive also supports RAID 0, RAID 1 and JBOD configurations. All three drives have gigabit Ethernet connections, as well as two USB 2.0 ports for devices such as printers or extra hard drives. The products are compatible with UPnP technology, and work on Mac, Linux and Windows operating systems. The new 500 and 750GB drives cost $270 and $360; the 1TB StorCenter is $390.
