Iomega Announces New NAS Products For Small Businesses

Iomega Corporation today announced the next generation of its popular Iomega StorCenter network-attached storage (NAS) devices.

The new Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d Servers will soon be available worldwide in four new models ranging in capacity from 500GB to 1.5TB. All models feature the Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 operating system, optimized for file and print services across the network. Configuration is virtually automatic with Iomega's Discovery Tool software, and the Microsoft Management Console provides a standard interface for network administration.

While previous generations of Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS servers have used Microsoft technologies, the new Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d servers are the first Iomega NAS servers offered with Windows Storage Server 2003 R2.

One of the new systems announced today, the StorCenter Pro NAS 250d 500GB server, also comes with a built-in Iomega REV 70GB drive for server backup and restore operations.

The flagship product in today's announcement is the Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d 1.5TB Server with print capability. Like all 250d Server products announced today, it uses SATA-II hot-swappable hard drives. Three 500GB 7200-RPM hard drives provide a total capacity of 1.5TB, and hardware RAID options include RAID 5 (striping plus parity), RAID 0 (striping), and RAID 1 (mirroring). The 750GB model uses three 250GB drives and supports the same hardware RAID options. The 500GB models in today's announcement are two-drive models that support RAID 0 and RAID 1, driven by Intel Matrix RAID technology.

Like the previous-generation 200d series, the 750GB and 1.5TB models in the 250d series feature dual Gigabit Ethernet connections with automatic load balancing and failover, and an external Ultra 320 SCSI connection. A faster Intel Celeron D 352 3.2 GHz processor replaces the previous generation's Celeron 2.5 GHz processor, improving overall performance.

Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d Servers provide broad support for Microsoft file and print services. File services with 500GB models include Active Directory, Encrypting File System (EFS), Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS), and SRM. Additional standard services with the 750GB and 1.5TB models include Distributed Files System (DFS-N and DFS-R), and File Server Resource Manager (FSRM).

Print services for the 750GB and 1.5TB models include a 5-printer license (upgradable to unlimited printers) for Microsoft Print Server.

For backup and disaster recovery, all Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d models include CA BrightStor ARCserve OEM edition software with disaster recovery, version 11.5, along with EMC Retrospect Express software for client backup and recovery (5-client license included; additional licenses are available).

Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 250d Servers support clients running Microsoft Windows 2000/XP Home/XP Professional/XP Professional x64, Mac OS X 10.2.7 or higher, and Linux distributions, including Redhat 9, Madrake 10, Debian 3.0, Gentoo, and FedoraCore 3.

Supported network file protocols include Microsoft, Linux/UNIX, Apple, Internet, FTP, and WEBDAV.

The StorCenter Pro 250d 500GB Server with REV Built-In is now available for $1,999, as well as the StorCenter Pro 250d 500GB Server for $1,399. The StorCenter Pro 250d 750GB Server with Print is expected to be available December 30, 2006, for $2,799. The Iomega StorCenter Pro 250d 1.5TB Server with Print is also expected to be available December 30, 2006, for $3,999. (All prices are suggested US retail.)
