Netgear has launched NETGEAR ReadyNAS RR2312, a 1U 12-bay high density rackmount network attached storage (NAS) solution for small and medium businesses. According to Netgear, ReadyNAS RR2312 is the industry’s first 12-bay NAS solution in a 1U form factor, a design that represents the highest density storage solution in the market.

ReadyNAS RR2312 is ideal for data backup, file serving, archiving, cloud storage and internet protocol (IP)-based surveillance video management and recording. It can be easily set up, monitored and managed via the new NETGEAR insight management mobile application. The 12-bay design and 4 gigabit Ethernet interfaces of ReadyNAS RR2312 offer high performance and data scalability, enabling a low initial investment with growth potential. ReadyNAS RR2312 protects data through a hybrid backup process that offers three options:

  • A centralised computer backup works with the ReadyCLOUD application to back up data to the ReadyNAS, with hourly snapshots, making sure the data is up to date. It is easily accessible and easy to restore in case of loss or corruption.
  • The free-of-charge disaster recovery solution, ReadyDR, protects businesses against unforeseen catastrophes by performing automated and continuous block-level data backup on a secondary ReadyNAS.
  • With backup on cloud, ReadyNAS can sync data to the public cloud of choice, including Amazon Web Services, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox.

The high density design of ReadyNAS RR2312 is also perfectly suited for video surveillance applications. By running the open network video interface forum (ONVIF)-compliant software, ReadyNAS RR2312 can pair with the new NETGEAR FlexPower wire-free IP Camera (VNC4030) and the FlexPower Base Station (VNB4000).

ReadyNAS RR2312 is based on the Linux 4 enterprise-grade b-tree file system and offers the complete set of business features of the ReadyNAS OS, including virtualisation support, and redundant array of independent disks (RAID) 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60. Further, ReadyNAS RR2312 has XRAID to protect against hard disk drive failure while maximising drive capacity utilisation; snapshot to protect against operational errors; a built-in antivirus solution; bit rot protection against media degradation; and cloud backup.
