ReadyNAS™ NV+ was designed specifically for power users and home offices.
Never before has there been available a cost-conscious network attached
storage (NAS) appliance packed with robust high-end server features, including
Gigabit Ethernet, hardware RAID, system monitoring capabilities and built-in
backup. The NV+ couples out-of-the-box deployment and easy management with
robust file serving and data redundancy.
Easy Deployment and Management
With an easy Web browser interface and setup wizard, the NV+ can be
configured with minimal effort — saving you valuable time. Traditional file
servers can take hours to configure and, even once up and running, don’t have
built-in system monitoring and email alerts. Automatic alerts give you the
peace of mind that things are running smoothly because if trouble should arise,
you will be notified.
Supporting hardware accelerated RAID (redundant array of independent disks)
levels 0, 1, 5 and ReadyNAS’s own X-RAID™ technology, the NV+ ensures full
data redundancy with protection against hardware failure – something
previously only available in high-end servers. If one drive fails, the data
volumes can still be rebuilt with the remaining drives. Without RAID, once a
failure occurs, you risk losing all of the data stored on the drive.
ReadyNAS’s patent pending X-RAID technology automates the volume expansion
for you as you scale from 1 drive to 4 drives. Most NAS devices on the market
aren’t future-proof. You can’t add or replace disks for larger capacity.
ReadyNAS allows you to start with one disk, then add the additional drives
over time, without reconfiguring the system and shuffling the data.
Additionally, as disk capacity becomes larger and cheaper, you can replace all
four disks, one by one, while X-RAID automatically manages the RAID details
All ReadyNAS systems include multiple backup layers that you can customize
to fit your needs. First, protect Windows and Mac clients with our included
CDP software. Then, take a snapshot of your ReadyNAS data to ensure a recovery
point. Next, backup to a USB drive on demand or on a schedule. Replication is
a cinch between two ReadyNAS systems, and finally the ReadyNAS Vault option
can move files and folders to an offsite secure data center for disaster
recovery. It’s all built in!
File Serving and Media Streaming
ReadyNAS is a single centralized source for all of your digital data. The
variety of digital devices and hard drives that currently house the data in
your home and office can make locating a particular file quite arduous.
ReadyNAS can bring all of that data together for fast and easy file serving to
multiple clients simultaneously. If it"s video or other high-definition media
you are working with, you can use your ReadyNAS for streaming to multiple
devices at the same time. ReadyNAS also provides DLNA Certified media
streaming to a wide variety of digital media devices (such as NETGEAR EVA
products or Microsoft Xbox 360™)
Advanced System Design
The industrial design and ultra compact form factor of the ReadyNAS makes
it perfect for any home office or small business. Standing only eight inches
tall and five inches wide, it can fit in any entertainment center or on any
desk without taking up much space or making much noise. ReadyNAS also offers
low power consumption and a special energy-saving mode that allows you to
automate startup and shutdown.
What about accessing historical records of your data, not just the most
recent version? A ReadyNAS can move multiple archive copies to a data center
using the optional ReadyNAS Vault software. 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!
