NETGEAR Announces Highest Density 10GbE Single-Node Storage Solution
Today NETGEAR Inc. launched what it is referring to as the industry’s highest density 10GbE single-node network storage solution, the ReadyNAS 4360X. This new ReadyNas is a 4U unit that accommodates up to 60 HDDs. With three EDA4000 expansion units, the 4360X can have a max capacity of 1.32PB (using 10TB HDDs). The new ReadyNas is aimed at SMBs.
Data is increasing rapidly across the board but some companies have much higher storage needs than others. The ReadyNAS 4360X is ideal for companies that have ultra high capacity needs, such as multi-service/multi-tenant data center operations, virtual machine backup, disaster recovery backup, archiving and IP surveillance camera video storage. These companies and others demand of high reliability and security, which is why the 4360X also offers 5 levels of data protection.
The new ReadyNAS 4360X runs ReadyNAS OS 6.7. With 6.7 users have the RAID options of 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60. The new ReadyNAS OS also offers enterprise-level capabilities such as synchronization with public cloud storage services including Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox.
From a hardware perspective, as we said the 4360X is a 4U unit with 60 bays supporting both SAS and SATA drives. The unit has three built-in SAS interfaces that can connect to either three ReadyNAS EDA2000 12-bay or EDA4000 24-bay expansion chassis, brining a total capacity of 1.32PB. For performance, the 4360X has an Intel Xeon E3-1225v5 Quad Core 3.3GHz Processor and up to 64GB of DDR4 memory.
