Iomega has revamped its storage line with a series of NAS servers targeted at SMBs that use a high-speed Serial ATA storage subsystem, and are based on Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003.
The Iomega NAS 400r servers are aimed at corporate departments, enterprise workgroups, large remote offices, and small- and medium-sized businesses. Models come with 640GB, 1TB, and 1.6TB of native storage capacity.
The servers use hot-swappable SATA drives, allowing a single drive to be removed from the unit without any data loss. The drives offer improved RAID integration for better system performance and reliability with support for RAID levels 0, 1 and 5. All servers in the series have dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and a high-speed Ultra SCSI 320 port for backup. The 1TB and 1.6TB systems also use Intel Pentium 4 HT (Hyper-Threading) processors, enabling software to run faster and more efficiently.
All NAS 400r servers ship with Iomega Automatic Backup software, a client backup solution with unlimited licenses for client PCs. Also included with each NAS 400r server is a full version of Computer Associates eTrust Antivirus software.
The servers are shipping now. The Iomega NAS 400r series 640GB server is available for $4,499; the Iomega NAS 400r series 1TB server for $5,999; and the Iomega NAS 400r series 1.6TB server for $7,499.
