"'Virtualization drives network storage adoption, and NETGEAR is a world leader in affordable, reliable storage solutions for businesses," said Drew Meyer, director of storage product marketing for NETGEAR's Network Storage Business Unit. "We are thrilled to be completely VMware Ready on our business-class ReadyNAS systems. As a result, our channel partners can deliver trusted virtualization solutions for as little as $1,000.'"
"Business-class ReadyNAS products include form factors to fit any budget or location. The desktop NVX (4-bay) and Pro (6-bay) are ideal for smaller firms or remote offices/branch offices with the tightest budget constraints or moderate availability requirements. The rack-mount ReadyNAS family includes 1U 4-bay models (the 2100 and 3100), as well as 2U 12-bay models (the 3200 and 4200). All models include a unified (NAS and iSCSI) storage architecture, secure replication, an offsite archive option, and yield highest performance and reliability metrics in their class."
