SAN JOSE, Calif., March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), a leading provider of networking equipment for homes and small-to-medium businesses (SMBs), is launching the NETGEAR ReadyNAS® 4U 60-bay 10GbE Rackmount Network Storage (RR4360X), the highest density rackmount network storage system for SMBs on the market today. With three EDA4000 expansion chassis, the ReadyNAS 4360X offers 1.32 petabytes (PB) of data storage on today’s 10 terabyte (TB) enterprise hard disk drives.

The new ReadyNAS 4360X is ideally suited for businesses that have ultra-large storage capacity needs and demand high levels of data reliability and security. It’s appropriate for applications such as multi-service/multi-tenant data center operations, virtual machine backup, disaster recovery backup, archiving and IP surveillance camera video storage.

With 5 levels of unrivaled data protection, ReadyCLOUD® flexible file sharing, and ReadyDR® block-level backup and disaster recovery, ReadyNAS 4360X Network Storage offers outstanding performance and scalability with the industry’s lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a storage solution in its class. It’s also the easiest to manage with the NETGEAR Insight management application for iOS and Android™ that enables setup, monitoring and management from a mobile device.

ReadyNAS 4360X is powered by the industry-leading1 ReadyNAS OS, now in version 6.7, which enables a flexible RAID configuration for performance, reliability and capacity optimization by offering unprecedented RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60 options. The new ReadyNAS OS 6.7 offers new enterprise-level capabilities such as synchronization with public cloud storage services including Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox. ReadyNAS OS 6.7 also expands capacity of ultra-performance ReadyNAS Rackmount models already on the market —ReadyNAS 3312, ReadyNAS 4312S and ReadyNAS 4312X—by two EDA2000 (12-bay) or EDA4000 (24-bay) expansion chassis.

“Our innovation in storage over the last decade has been to bring enterprise-class functionality to the SMB, without the typical Big IT premium. The new ReadyNAS 4360X for rack deployment is no exception,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of SMB product line management for NETGEAR.

“ReadyNAS 4360X is a complete hardware and software data protection solution with exceptional performance in a single backup appliance that combines the highest-density storage capacity with new usability and synchronization features to safeguard the security and privacy of your data, along with the lowest TCO in the industry.”

Key Hardware Features of ReadyNAS Rackmount 4360X
The ReadyNAS 4360X keeps up with the demands of high workload virtualization and applications with a high-performance architecture powered by an Intel® Xeon® E3-1225v5 Quad Core 3.3GHz Processor, along with 16GB of DDR4 with ECC expandable to 64GB. The ReadyNAS 4360X is equipped with four 1GBase-T ports and two 10 gigabit per second network interfaces, either 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) copper (RR4360X model) or 10 Gigabit SFP+ (RR4360S model).

ReadyNAS 4360X is housed in a space-efficient rackmount 4U chassis offering SAS or SATAIII selectable hard disk drive interface for all 60 bays to enable IT managers to optimize cost and performance. Its three built-in SAS interfaces can connect to three ReadyNAS EDA2000 12-bay or EDA4000 24-bay expansion chassis. Fully loaded, ReadyNAS 4360X offers a 132-bay single node network storage solution for any business demanding ultra-high capacity and reliability. Supporting 1.32 PB of data, it is the first such solution on the market designed for the SMB to offer this level of density.

New Cloud Options in Enhanced ReadyNAS OS
ReadyNAS Rackmount (RR4340X) is powered by the latest version (6.7) of the industry-leading ReadyNAS OS, which enables a complete, reliable and cost-effective backup platform, starting with its BTRFS File System with 5 levels of data protection:

  1. Flex RAID protection against disk failure while maximizing drive capacity utilization
  2. Incremental backup copies with unlimited snapshots to protect against operational error
  3. Built-in, real-time anti-virus solution
  4. Bitrot protection against media degradation; and
  5. Easy-to-setup cloud-managed replication

ReadyNAS makes the ideal hybrid cloud solution for small business ensuring the cloud and local storage are synchronized. ReadyNAS OS 6.7 helps you backup on-site storage to Amazon S3, or backup your Amazon S3 storage to the on-site storage. The ReadyNAS OS supports automatic bi-direction synchronization between any ReadyNAS model and the data storage offered by public cloud services popular with businesses such as Google Drive, Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, and Dropbox.

The newest ReadyNAS OS also supports a Docker app so that software developers, businesses, and computing enthusiasts can quickly build, run, test, and deploy distributed Docker container applications

In addition to supporting connections to these commonly used public cloud services, ReadyNAS ReadyNAS 4360X offers NETGEAR ReadyCLOUD® for an instant, secure VPN-based private cloud for local and remote data access for file sharing, without additional costs. Its versatile sync and remote management capabilities enable employees to enjoy the same unified interface regardless of location.

ReadyNAS OS (version 6.6 and above) automatically installs ReadyDR™ (Disaster Recovery), the ultimate backup solution for all mission-critical data for SMBs requiring minimal downtime in any catastrophic event. ReadyDR performs incremental and block-level backup and restore to a second compatible ReadyNAS, ensuring LAN replication of even the largest backup files and databases.

ReadyNAS OS Expands Capacity of ReadyNAS 3312 and 4312
The new capabilities in the latest version of ReadyNAS OS are available for additional models in the ReadyNAS Rackmount Network Storage family. Launched in late 2016, ReadyNAS 3312, ReadyNAS 4312S and ReadyNAS 4312X are 2U rackmount network storage systems with 12-bay capacity of 120 TB and 600 TB of total storage in expansion mode. Now with ReadyNAS OS 6.7, each unit can connect to two EDA2000 (12-bay) or EDA4000 (24-bay) expansion chassis. The ReadyNAS RR4312X has four 1GBase-T network interfaces and dual 10 Gigabit per second ports, either 10GbE copper (RR4312X model) or 10-Gigabit SFP+ (RR4312S model).
