Re: Iomega 2TB and 4TB Ix4-100 NAS

Small, Powerful and Versatile
The Iomega StorCenter Pro ix4-100 NAS has the small footprint of a compact desktop with either 2TB or 4TB capacities. The ix4 provides centralized storage to businesses users searching for the easiest and most technologically advanced way to share, secure and protect their most important data – including work files, videos, photos, music files and other digital data.

With just four mouse clicks, the ix4 is ready to work with any computer on the network. Management of the ix4 is handled by a user friendly web interface, accessible in any of 11 supported languages. Users can access files from any networked Windows PC, Linux workstation or Macintosh computer for easy file-sharing, data backup and print-serving.

The ix4 can be configured with different levels of RAID support: RAID 5 (pre-configured) and RAID 10 (both with automatic RAID rebuild), as well as JBOD. The four drives in the ix4 are hot-swap SATA II hard drives that minimize downtime and allow for easy replacement.

With Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and a high-performance embedded architecture, the ix4 boosts small business productivity by making data readily accessible, yet secure, over a local network. The ix4 has four USB 2.0 ports for adding printers or additional storage capacity with external USB drives.
