ReadyNAS™ Pro is the newest and most powerful member of the award-winning ReadyNAS product family. Designed for small and medium businesses, workgroups and home offices, ReadyNAS Pro delivers class-leading performance, ease of use, and robust features in a small desktop form factor chassis supporting 6 SATA channels and up to 9 TB of storage. This 6-bay network attached storage (NAS) appliance is packed with enterprise server features, including RAID (redundant array of independent disks) levels 0, 1, 5, 6, and Auto-Expandable X-RAID2 support for data protection against disk failure, system monitoring capabilities and built-in backup. To ensure high availability to stored data, the ReadyNAS Pro features dual redundant Gigabit Ethernet ports for failover protection.

Class-leading Performance
Powered by an Intel® multi-core processor, the ReadyNAS Pro is a powerful NAS for missioncritical business data across a variety of different platforms. The high-performance platform coupled with dual Gigabit Ethernet and jumbo frame support provides enough bandwidth to allow more users to access data storage simultaneously.

Easy Deployment and Management
With an easy Web browser interface and setup wizard, ReadyNAS can be configured with minimal effort — saving you valuable time. Traditional file servers can take hours to configure, and they don't have built-in system monitoring and email alerts. With the ReadyNAS Pro, you'll receive email alerts whenever something out of the ordinary arises, such as disk failure, overtemperature condition, and fan failure, giving you peace of mind.

The ReadyNAS Pro utilizes hardware-accelerated RAID to ensure full data redundancy without compromising the system performance. Incorporating Intel Matrix Storage Technology, the ReadyNAS Pro supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, and NETGEAR's patent pending X-RAID2™, with hot spare capability. With RAID 6, the system ensures data integrity even with 2 simultaneous disk failures. The extra disk bays provided by the 6-bay ReadyNAS Pro makes RAID 6 and hot spares practical options worth considering to prevent any prolonged state in which the ReadyNAS data volume is left in an unprotected state.

X-RAID2™ Technology
X-RAID2 is the 2nd generation of ReadyNAS's proven patent-pending Auto-Expandable RAID technology. X-RAID2 automates the volume expansion for you as you scale from 1 drive to 6 drives while keeping your data online. Additionally, as your storage requirement grows, you can replace your disks with larger capacity ones, and X-RAID2 automatically and incrementally expands your storage “vertically.” No other NAS devices in this class can do this without reformatting your disks and shuffling your data back and forth.

A sound backup strategy is important. Relying on manually copying your important files is tedious and error-prone. The Pro ships with NTI Shadow designed specially for the ReadyNAS allowing continuous data protection (CDP) between your Windows and Mac clients and the ReadyNAS. In addition to CDP, Shadow provides versioning support so that you can revert to any past saved version of your files. Additionally, the ReadyNAS Pro includes an integrated backup manager that enables one-button backup between your NAS appliance and external USB HDD for offsite rotation, or remote servers.

Advanced System Design
The industrial design and compact desktop form factor of the ReadyNAS Pro makes it perfect not just for small and medium size businesses, but also for departments and work groups. Standing only ten inches tall and seven inches wide, it can fit in any server space or on any desk. ReadyNAS Pro also offers low power consumption and a special energy-saving mode allowing you to not only spin-down your drives but also program the ReadyNAS to automatically power on only when the device will be in use. In addition, with Wake-on-LAN, you can power off the ReadyNAS and wake it up remotely when you need to access it.

File Serving and Media Streaming
ReadyNAS Pro is a single centralized source for all of your digital data. The variety of computers and external drives that currently house the data in your office and home can make locating a particular file quite arduous. The ReadyNAS Pro can bring all of that data together for fast and easy file serving to multiple clients across the local network or via the Internet.
