HANNOVER, Germany -- NETGEAR, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, today announced ReadyNAS® Vault™ – its new online backup and disaster-recovery service for consumers and Small- to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs). Designed to give consumers and SMBs a simple but still enterprise-class solution for Internet- or “cloud-based” data protection, ReadyNAS Vault is available for all versions of its award-winning family of ReadyNAS® products. NETGEAR will provide a demo of ReadyNAS Vault and display its full line of ReadyNAS devices at the CeBIT trade show in Hannover, Germany, March 3-8, 2009, in Hall 13, Stand C58 of the Hannover Exhibition Hall.

ReadyNAS Vault is an easy-to-use, cost-effective online backup service built right into all ReadyNAS systems. Consumers and SMBs can regularly and securely copy data to a world-class storage facility and can recover data from any Web browser and any Internet location. Instead of purchasing and maintaining servers, agents and licenses, the necessary software is already tightly integrated into the ReadyNAS storage products, so there is no need for additional infrastructure or upgrades. Backup jobs, individual ReadyNAS systems and recovery tasks are all centrally located in an online console, making managing multiple locations and jobs far simpler. Administrators and resellers alike can use ReadyNAS Vault’s online interface to confirm that backups have taken place, to change to backup tasks and to recover critical files from anywhere on the planet.

“As data becomes even more critical, consumers and businesses alike are increasingly interested in Internet ‘cloud-based’ storage as added insurance for their own storage infrastructure. However, consumers and SMBs have historically lacked the necessary expertise and resources to do so, despite having just as pressing a need as larger businesses,” said Paul Tien, vice president and general manager of NETGEAR’s Network Storage Business Unit. “With the ReadyNAS Vault service, NETGEAR is the first to solve this issue by seamlessly linking cloud-based storage with our entire family of ReadyNAS devices.”
