An Industry-first: Enterprise-class Solutions that Liberate SMB.

With unlimited snapshots, block-level replication, native deduplication, and flexible form factors, ReadyDATA brings affordable, easy-to-manage, high-end data solutions to businesses of all sizes.

Unlimited Snapshots

Welcome to Unlimited Snapshots for NAS. ReadyDATA gives you continuous data protection with unlimited block-based snapshots of your file system. Create and track multiple versions and restore any point of time with a single click. And admin couldn’t be easier or more flexible: you can schedule automatic or manual Snapshots and restore Snapshot data from local admin GUI or native Windows File Explorer.

Block-Level Replication

Designing simple, cost-effective disaster recovery plans is easy with ReadyDATA cloud-managed, block-level replication. By sending only changed blocks for shares & LUNs, bandwidth demands and replication time are dramatically reduced. ReadyDATA also replicates unlimited snapshots along with files and data—complete copies of data sets from a specific point in time you can easily access and restore.

Read/Write Optimization

One way to balance performance, capacity, and costs is to combine SATA and SSD drives in one volume. ReadyDATA excels with these hybrid configurations—allowing you to configure write-optimized and read-optimized SSD drives to act as a performance cache and boost the performance of low-cost, high-capacity SATA drives.

High-Efficiency Storage

Efficiently managing rampant data growth is a vexing challenge. ReadyDATA smartly reduces storage capacity requirements with deduplication and compression. By shrinking backup data and removing globally common blocks of data as they are written, redundancy is eliminated from multiple backup jobs, and valuable capacity is saved.

ReadyDATA Hybrid Cloud

The new Cloud Replicate feature allows users to cut the office cord completely by using the ReadyDATA Hybrid Cloud. It makes replication from multiple sites—without being on site— simple and powerful. The ReadyDATA Cloud-based Management portal offers easy block-level replication along with unlimited snapshots—from anywhere, at anytime.

Thin and Instant Provisioning

ReadyDATA virtualization gives you the critical flexibility to add capacity as needed—so no need to predetermine volume capacity and quotas ahead of time. ReadyDATA also provides thin provisioning for all volume types, making easier, smarter virtualization management a reality. ReadyDATA adds automatic—and on-the-fly—volume expansion, making overhead protection and capacity scaling both simple and powerful. This instant expansion capability allows for storage capacity expansion without downtime, wait time, or risk.

Virtual Networking

Dual 10GbE ports on the 5200 and virtual network interface support on all models ensure that even in I/O intensive virtual environments, network bottlenecks are a thing of the past. ReadyDATA also supports industry-standard file sharing protocols including iSCSI, CIFS, and NFS.

Superior Support and Outstanding Warranty

Behind every ReadyDATA device stands outstanding customer protection. NETGEAR's 5-year Warranty is Best-In-Breed and includes Drive Packs. And critical, next business day hardware replacement is delivered onsite and supported for 3 years.

Edge-to-Core Data Protection

ReadyDATA replicates your data at will, stores it where you need it, and protects it from human mistakes and inevitable disasters. Managed through the ReadyDATA Hybrid Cloud, it offers block-level replications and unlimited snapshots—from HQ, a remote office, or even from your laptop. It's liberating, efficient, centrally-managed data.

Managed Backup

Unlimited snapshots give you complete control over the past, present, and future of your data. This enterprise-class feature copies any point of time in the file system, can be manually or automatically scheduled, and can restore any version with a simple click. The process of backing up data and replicating backups off site for protection is smartly simple: backups are written directly to ReadyDATA using standard protocols, compression and deduplication save valuable space, and Cloud Replicate moves backup data and snapshots offsite with new ease.

File sharing in business settings with ReadyNAS Desktop from NETGEAR

File Sharing

These days, running a successful business often depends on successful file sharing—application data, virtual images, client files, email, all the digital files that make your business go. With ReadyDATA you finally have an advanced and easy-to use solution for centralizing, securing, and sharing those critical assets. Faster processors mean more simultaneous users can access unified storage—across PC, Mac and Linux environments.

Disaster Recovery

The custom-built ReadyDATA OS protects stored data with automatic RAID configuration, the continuous security of Unlimited Snapshots, and easy to manage block-level replication. By maintaining multiple copies of vital data through cloud-managed replication, it makes it easy for you to move data off-site to protect against natural disasters and theft.
