LenovoEMC, a joint venture between industry-leaders Lenovo and EMC that includes the Iomega network storage product business, today announced the rebranding of Iomega products and programs worldwide. Effective immediately, the former Iomega-branded network storage products are available worldwide with a new logo that reflects the LenovoEMC business while continuing to utilize the Iomega mark on entry-level consumer network storage products.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are similar in one respect to the iPod on release -- until one used it, the utility wasn't immediately apparent. Then, upon using it, it becomes nearly vital to day-to-day operations. The Iomega PX2-300d is the Cadillac of NAS boxes. Driven by a dual-core Atom processor, the device is brutally fast for what it is, and runs a host of services -- including the ability to serve as the core of a security system, bit torrent, iTunes, iSCSI initiation, file sharing with user management, and automated off-site backup. In the NAS ecosystem, where does it fit? Electronista got a hold of a 4TB unit, and ran it through its paces.
Drive vendor Iomega today unveiled the worldwide availability of the latest additions to its lineup of network storage solutions. The first is the new StorCenter px2-300d Network Storage, a high-performance, Intel Atom-powered, double-drive desktop NAS enclosure with up to 6TB of storage. Also announced was the StorCenter ix4-300d Network Storage, the next generation of IomegaĻs StorCenter ix series of easy-to-use four-drive desktop network storage appliances.
Storage solution provider Iomega announced a new flagship product today, the Iomega StorCenter px12-450r Network Storage array, a networked data storage system incorporating an Ivy Bridge processor from Intel. Iomega also announced the addition of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise to all Iomega StorCenter PX series products. Iomega's new storage option would appear to be the first non-computer product to feature an Ivy Bridge processor.
Many of Iomega's Mac-oriented storage products merely ship pre-formatted for HFS+, but the new Mac Companion has been entirely designed with Apple's computers in mind. The housing is shaped to match the footprint of an iMac or Cinema/Thunderbolt display, while FireWire connections and a 2.1 Amp USB port complement Apple's computers and iOS devices. In our full review, we explore the Mac Companion's functionality as a storage device and connection hub.
Storage maker Iomega says it has released an updated Mac Edition of the eGo Portable Hard Drive. 500GB and 1TB capacities are available, and each unit includes two FireWire 800 ports in addition to a USB 2.0 connection. HFS+ formatting is used, along with 256-bit AES encryption.
ViewSonic will no longer bring its planned smart TV running on Boxee's media center software, at least in the near term, the company told GigaOM. High costs and a lack of interest in the market were cited as the key factors. ViewSonic elaborated, stating consumers spent less on Smart TVs along with the slow-down in the economy.
Iomega made an unusual contribution to external hard drives built for committed Apple fans. The Mac Companion Hard Drive both provides pre-formatted storage for the Mac itself but a high-power USB port for charging. The connector can work with most any USB device but is intended for iPad owners who either don't have a Mac with the extra-power USB or who already have their ports full.
Iomega on Tuesday introduced its new ScreenPlay DX HD connected media player range that replaces the old ScreenPlay Pro HD line. The devices can access Netflix, Pandora and other entertainment sites, as well as playback standard and HD movies locally or from a home network thanks to their DLNA certification. They connect to the web using a standard Wi-Fi connection, and a small, wireless QWERTY keyboard is bundled.
While Iomega's Boxee hub and iPhone backup dock served as the primary focus of Iomega's CES introductions, the company also expanded its storage lineup with a new Home Media NAS. The latest drive offers many of the same features as its predecessors, with the addition of a new "Personal Cloud" system that links the storage device to users or other devices via the Internet.
