NETGEAR Expands ReadyNAS Line

3100 and 4200 models provide support of up to 500 users. 3100 is a 1U 4-bay rack-mountable storage platform; the 4200 is a 2U 12-bay rack-mountable storage platform.

NETGEAR has added two new network storage platforms optimized for storage virtualization applications to its line of ReadyNAS products.

The ReadyNAS line is aimed at reducing costs and increasing flexibility by providing data storage and integrated replication and backup options in virtualized IT infrastructures. The new NETGEAR products, ReadyNAS 3100 and ReadyNAS 4200, provide support for up to 500 users, making them ideal for SMBs.

The ReadyNAS 3100 is a 1U 4-bay rack-mountable storage platform that provides up to 8 terabytes (TB) of storage capacity in a single system. The ReadyNAS 4200 is a 2U 12-bay rack-mountable storage platform that provides up to 24TB and two redundant drives in a single system. Both are VMware-ready and are unified storage systems powered by the Linux-based ReadyNAS RAIDiator operating system.

The ReadyNAS 3100, with 4 SATA channels, is the first sub-$5,000 1U rack-mount storage system with redundant power supply. Additionally, the ReadyNAS 4200, with 12 SATA channels, is the first ReadyNAS to support the 10 Gigabit Ethernet network infrastructure.

ReadyNAS 3100 and 4200 features include:

  • Unified architecture support for both NAS and iSCSI SAN applications (cross platform file sharing, secure replication, easy remote access, cloud backup, disaster recovery, and server virtualization)
  • Intel-powered platforms (Quad Core processor)
  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity (ReadyNAS 4200)
  • Hot swappable enterprise SATA drives, redundant system cooling, redundant network ports, Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory, and redundant power supply.

The 1U rack-mount ReadyNAS 3100 can come equipped with 4 TB or 8 TB of storage capacity at an estimated U.S. street price starting at $3,800. The 2U ReadyNAS 4200 can come equipped with 12TB or 24 TB of storage capacity at an estimated U.S. street price starting at $10,000. Both solutions can be purchased worldwide from NETGEAR PowerShift Partners as of late April.

ReadyNAS Vault is included as a 30-day trial of pre-paid and annual capacity plans.

ReadyNAS systems come with full 24/7 technical support and a five-year warranty with spare parts support and extended service options.
