Highlights for Netgear ReadyNAS 2100 Unified Network Storage 4TB Rack Mount System

Flexible, Highly Affordable Business-class Storage

  • Simultaneously supports NAS and iSCSI SAN for database and server virtualization applications
  • Reliable, automatic, data protection with offsite options
  • Cross-platform support for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX/Linux systems
  • High-density 1U rack-mount, extreme energy efficiency and simple serviceability
The ReadyNAS 2100 is a 1U 4-bay storage system designed for workgroups and small businesses. It is a high-quality solution for storing, sharing and protecting business-critical data that is affordable for the smallest office. ReadyNAS unified architecture solves numerous data management problems with a single system, making capacity management, access, backup, restore and disaster recovery worries obsolete. Now you can eliminate common data concerns and revolutionize your storage environment without becoming an expert.

Centralize data from your local systems into one single storage device, reducing management headaches and instantly increasing reliability. Capacity can be added with zero downtime, and ReadyNAS supports both file sharing and server applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server or VMware.

Access data no matter where you are from multiple computers, on the road, or in an alternate office location. Serve files to Windows, Macintosh and Linux/UNIX users simultaneously. Safely deliver or present your work to customers and clients without email or FTP headaches!

The ReadyNAS Remote feature means drag-and-drop over a secure connection between any computer and your ReadyNAS. No more firewall, VPN or awkward Web-based remote access solutions.

Successful businesses understand that lost information means lost revenue. Multiple layers of protection are built into every ReadyNAS, including drive fault tolerance, online backups (snapshots), and secure offsite replication to another ReadyNAS system. A ReadyNAS revolutionizes backup and recovery times and can replace tape completely, making offsite replication and backup a complete, affordable and timely reality for small business users.

The ReadyNAS Vault option automatically preserves multiple archive copies in a datacenter. This centralized, set-and-forget choice means no more dedicated servers, licenses or failed jobs, and captures as little or as much as you choose. Recovery can be done from any network location and is as simple as using a Web browser!
