The Iomega StorCenter ix2 1TB (2HD x 500GB ) and 2 TB (2HD x 1000GB) is a network attached storage solution for small office networks. The StorCenter ix2 is a cost effective solution for data protection or increasing network storage capacity.

This Storage Area Network hard drive offers RAID 1 (Mirroring) and JBOD (Just A Bunch of Disks) options. The dual drives setup with RAID 1 provide data redundancy in the case of disk drive failure. The JBOD features allow the two hard drives to be merged. JBOD storage is the combined total of the two drives in contrast to Raid 0 which is the 2x the size of the smaller hard drive. With hard drive failure, in the JBOD configuration, only data on the failed hard drive is lost. RAID 1 is a better choice for backup and JBOB offers more storage capacity.

Other features include backup software, virus encryption technology, Bluetooth upload, security camera support and UPnP and DLNA media device capabilities. The drive also has a built in media server that allows listening, viewing and accessing files from any compatible device on the network.

Setting up the drive is easy with the included CD and four-click set-up. One year standard service is included and extended Silver service is available. . The Iomega StorCenter ix2 supports PC, Mac and Linux clients.

    This product performs as stated in the ads, it is about the same price as a regular external drive but after setup it can be used from the local network or from the internet. The setup was easy and I was able to access the drive from all three of my network devices and the internet in a matter of minutes. You can set permissions for individual devices or people you wnt to give access over the internet. Great product for the money.torrent

    I am thinking of buying something like a Buffalo LinkStation Live 1TB or Seagate GoFlex Home 1TB which are hard drives which plugs into my router and provides network storage. If I want to transfer data wirelessly from my laptop to the hard drive does it actually use my internet connection?

    I have a 2tb external hard drive I use for extra storage for my dish network receiver. I was wondering if I could partition this hard drive after I loaded the dish network software on to it so I could also use it as a back up for my network too?
