Enterprise Storage Free From The Costs And Constraints Of Big IT. With unlimited snapshots, block-level replication, native deduplication, and flexible form factors, ReadyDATA liberates enterprise-class technologies—bringing affordable, easy-to-manage, high-end data protection to businesses of all sizes.
An industry-first: Enterprise-class technology that's absolutely liberating for SMB.
NETGEAR’s ReadyDATA is a unified storage (NAS/SAN) platform featuring enterprise-class technology designed for businesses of any size. With unlimited snapshots, block-level replication, native deduplication, and SMB-friendly form factors, ReadyDATA frees high-end data protection, disaster recovery and data integrity technologies from the oppressive contracts, license agreements, and costs of “Big IT” vendors.
Welcome to Unlimited Snapshots for NAS. ReadyNAS 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 restore Snapshot data from local admin GUI, ReadyCLOUD, or native Windows FileExplorer, and can schedule automatic or manual Snapshots.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Efficiently managing rampant data growth is an 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.
Thin and Instant Provisioning
ReadyDATA virtualization gives you the critical flexibility to add capacity as needed—so no need to pre-determine volume capacity and quotas ahead of time. Unlike others, ReadyDATA also provides thin provisioning for all volumes created, not just iSCI volumes, making easier, smarter virtualization management a reality. XRAID2 with ReadyDATA adds automatic—and on-the-fly—volume expansion, making overhead protection and capacity scaling both simple and powerful.
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.
