If you liked the StorCenter ix2 NAS server, iomega has some news for you! The company has just announced the next generation of the server, the iomega StorCenter ix2-200.
Available in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, the new ix2-200 is brimming with business features including RAID 1 configurations for optimized data protection, device-device replication for business continuity and file recovery, Windows Active Directory Support, QuickTransfer button for easy copying of selected files, iSCSI block-level access for efficient storage utilization, multiple IP security camera support, and VMware certification for virtualization installations.
The ix2-200 also has a treasure trove of features for the digital home including Bluetooth capability for uploading all kinds of digital content from a smart phone, built-in torrent support for file-sharing without the need for a dedicated PC, A DLNA certified UPnP AV Media Server that makes the ix2-200 the central repository for serving up all your movies, photos, music, and other files to any compatible device on your network, and three USB ports that can be used with both USB external hard drives and printers.
The new ix2-200 is also a power saving â€œgreenâ€ NAS appliance. Iomega claims the StorCenter ix2-200 consumes less power than previous models. The server automatically spins the hard drive down when it’s idle and comes with an Energy Star-certified power supply. But like the previous version, the new server doesn’t offer a quick way to replace the hard drive. You will have to use quite a bit of screwdriving work to get this done, which means no hot-swapping, either.
The new 1TB StorCenter ix2-200 NAS appliance is available now and costs $270 for the 1TB version and $370 for the 2TB version. The 4TB model, which will be available later this month, will cost $670. All versions of the StorCenter ix2-200 are backed by a three-year warranty. You may also be interested with the old version, the Iomega StorCenter ix2 available at Amazon.
