Iomega StorCenter ix2 Network Storage Hard Drive
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.
