Netgear enhances ReadyNAS cases with apps, speed, pricing

updated 10:10 pm EDT, Tue May 31, 2011

Network storage for connected households

Netgea has beefed up their ReadyNAS Ultra line of network hard drive storage solutions with a new accessing apps for iOS and Android devices, new pricing for the lineup and a firmware update that will, the company says, increase performance by as much as 50 percent. Using the mobile apps, users can download, upload and edit their stored content securely.

The various products in the line (two-bay, four-bay and six-bay models) will all feature a new "RAIDiator" firmware (v4.2.17) that improves HD video playback and transfer speeds, along with bringing support for the latest three-terabyte drives. This means that even the base unit could support up to 6TB, while the high-end six-bay model could offer up to 18TB of storage.

The apps allow consumers to have a "private cloud" for those that don't trust or want to pay ongoing monthly charges for public cloud storage. The units are fitted with an Intel Atom processor, and are DLNA and Tivo-compatible out of the box. Recurring or scheduled backups can be done using the included software for both Windows and Mac OS X, and features the company's X-RAID2 technology for automatic volume expansion and management.

The units range from $300 for a two-bay diskless model to $1,000 for a six-bay diskless unit, and can be sold with hard drives already installed. The iOS app costs $3 and requires iOS 3 or higher, while the Android app requires v2.1 and also costs $3. The units will soon be offered directly on Netgear's own website as well as through computer and electronics resellers.
