With ReadyNAS, there is no additional software to install because the operating system is embedded.
Backup and Data Archiving
Netgear RNRX4450 offers a sound information lifecycle management strategy includes backup and data protection as well as archiving and long-term retention. ReadyNAS™ can cost-effectively help you with each. ReadyNAS™ 2100 provides a perfect backup target. With the help of EMC® Retrospect® backup and recovery software, included with ReadyNAS™, you can set automatic backups of all of your network clients – whether they are Windows®, Mac or Linux. Additionally, ReadyNAS™ includes an integrated backup manager that enables one-button or scheduled backup from your appliance to both external USB HDD and remote servers for offsite rotation. ReadyNAS™ can also be used for long-term storage and archiving.
Netgear RNRX4450 Supports hardware accelerated RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks), ReadyNAS™ ensures full data redundancy with protection against hardware failure. If one drive fails, the data volumes can still be rebuilt with the remaining drives. ReadyNAS™ can be configured for levels 0, 1, 5 or ReadyNAS’s own X-RAID™ technology. X-RAID automates the volume expansion for you when scaling from 1 HDD to 4 HDD. Start with one disk, and then add additional disks, or even upgrade to higher capacity disks later, without shuffling the data and reconfiguring the system.
Active Directory Integration
ReadyNAS™ can be integrated into Active Directory in a few keystrokes, allowing you to take full advantage of the existing permissions. If you have not deployed Active Directory, ReadyNAS™ can be setup with its own share and user /group permissions.
Rapid System Board replacement module
In addition to the ground-breaking X-RAID™ technology, the ReadyNAS™ Rackmount als includes X-Change® S10 – Rapid System Board replacement module. ReadyNAS™ has cleverly packaged the system board, power supply and cooling fans into a discrete module. X-Change facilitates the servicing of non HDD related failures and literally takes just moments to swap out, saving man hours and minimising downtime when it is most critical.
