NetGear ReadyNAS Conquers Your Cloud Storage Needs Effortlessly
The NetGear ReadyNAS line of Network Attached Storage devices provides an unparalleled level of accessibility, interoperability, and value for both home and business users. They can consolidate, protect, and provide access to your data from any device, anywhere in the world.
ReadyCloud is NetGear’s web based service which turns your NAS device into your very own cloud based storage solution. With ReadyCloud, configuring your NAS device is as simple as opening a web browser and pressing “Discover”. Once your device is added to your ReadCloud account you can begin accessing your data from any device, on any network.
Sharing all of your pictures, videos, music, and documents has never been easier. Seamlessly access all of your data from your local network, or from a remote location, on any device. This provides you with unmatched interoperability and accessibility across platforms. NetGear’s ReadyBox even allows you to synchronize folders across devices, much like the popular DropBox service, but without the additional fees.
NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage protects your data with robust redundancy and replication features. Standard RAID storage controllers prevent data loss from hard drive failure. Replication options allow you to replicate your data across multiple devices in case of catastrophic failure, or theft. Device backups made to your NAS device insure you against data loss from lost, stolen or broken devices. Never again will you have to fret over your irreplaceable pictures, videos or documents.
Snapshots also provide you with unique data management possibilities. Creating snapshots manually, or at regular intervals, will allow you to access older versions of your data. Whether you need a version of a file from last week, or last month, snapshots provide you with indexed catalog of changes made to each file.
Streaming services make your NAS an indispensible piece of your home entertainment puzzle. Using services such as iTunes server or PLEX allow you to stream movies, music, pictures, internet television and more to any device. Whether you’re home or at the office, all of your media will be at your fingertips.
Expanding the functionality of your device couldn't be easier. There's already more than 75 free apps available to download. Simply click Apps then Available Apps in your NAS administration. Don't see the app you need? Becoming a developer will allow you to create your own custom applications.
No one in the industry has shipped more home NAS devices than NetGear. They have models to fit your needs whether your data is being accessed by 5 or 5000. They offer competitive pricing and true value when it comes to cloud storage technology.
WHO THE NETGEAR READY NAS IS PERFECT FOR
This product is honestly perfect for people like me. As technology gets cheaper, unfortunately so do the many devices that we own. We literally have a technology graveyard and some things still work perfectly well. But we have too much. I donate as much as I can. If I haven't seen something played with recently, it's gone.
This is perfect for me because with all of those tech gadgets, that means I have stuff on everything. I have lost several laptops full of pictures that I had never backed up. It really never occured to me to do that. I know…it's not that smart but believe me I have paid the price. The beautiful thing about the photos we used to print out, last and hang around much longer. The digital ones I tend not to see as often but that doesn't stop me from hoarding them. I have lost a lot of kids pictures and it makes me sad. I won't get to relive those memories so I have to be pretty comfortable with the fact that I lived those memories and that is good enough.
However, I do need to plan going forward because these kids are just too darn cute not to memorialize in pictures. I need the NETGEAR ReadyNAS because I will get into the habit of saving and never lose those valuable pictures again. At the very least, I will ask my husband to do it. No more photo losses!
The NETGEAR ReadyNAS has found its home. We have used it a lot.
