SAN JOSE, Calif. -- NETGEAR(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: NTGR), a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, today announced the addition of several new 4-bay storage appliances to its award-winning family of ReadyNAS(R) products for Small- to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs). The ReadyNAS NVX, which is designed for home offices, workgroups and small businesses, offers double the performance of previous NV+ units, support for file services (NAS) and application services (iSCSI SAN) for Windows(R), UNIX(R)/Linux and Mac systems, including support for Time Machine(R) in Mac OS X v 10.5(R) Leopard. It enables users to securely store, share and protect business-critical data across a LAN or WAN, guard against disk failures, and grow capacity as needed. As with all ReadyNAS systems, the new NVX is extremely fast, easy-to-use and deploy, and affordable - ideal for resellers eager to solve customer needs for centralized storage and disaster recovery. NETGEAR will display its full line of ReadyNAS solutions in booth #800 at the Storage Networking World trade show in Orlando, Florida, April 6-9, 2009.
"NETGEAR is fully committed to providing the best possible networked storage solutions to the SMB market - offering a range of appliances that address different capacity requirements and thrifty IT budgets," said Paul Tien, vice president and general manager of NETGEAR's Networked Storage Business Unit. Mr. Tien will give a presentation at Storage Networking World on "Multi-layered Backup for SOHO and SMB."
He added, "We're extremely pleased to add iSCSI support to this new NVX platform so we can now provide a unified NAS+iSCSI storage option in a very compact desktop form factor at such an affordable price point to our hugely successful ReadyNAS line. Our ReadyNAS products have been praised by channel partners and end users alike for high performance, reliability, scalability, ease-of-use and, perhaps most importantly, overall value."
