Netgear enters home NAS with Stora

updated 10:35 am EDT, Mon September 21, 2009

Netgear Stora offers Internet storage

Netgear branched out from pure network hardware to network-attached storage (NAS) this morning with the unveiling of the Stora. Like most drives, it shares a hard drive over the local network using Ethernet and can act as a server for iTunes music as well as DLNA and UPnP devices like the PS3 and Xbox 360. The new approach tries to simplify access through an optional web-based media viewer that shows photo and video thumbnails as well as automatic pushing of certain content to Facebook and Flickr.

The storage tower allows for remote downloads and uploads over a web login and is somewhat unique in having a second drive bay that can be used for a RAID-like mirroring of the main drive. Backup software is pre-supplied for both Macs and Windows PCs, although it's not said if the Stora will work with Time Machine in Mac OS X.

Just one Storage configuration is available and comes with a single 1TB drive for $229. Full social network integration needs a $20 yearly fee.

    Not first NAS for Netgear

    "Netgear branched out from pure network hardware to network-attached storage " seems to ignore the fact that Netgear already has a line of NAS devices under the ReadyNAS label.
