Iomega has refreshed its top-of-line rackmount NAS with more memory and features.
The StorCenter px12-350r Network Storage Array is built in the same Intel Core2 Duo platform as the ix12-300r it replaces. But the new NAS has twice the memory and has a revamped feature set including Iomega's Personal Cloud technology.
Hardware features include a 3 GHz Intel Core2 Duo E8400 CPU with 4 GB of DDR2 RAM, four Gigabit Ethernet ports supporting aggregation, failover, load balancing and VLANs. Three USB 2.0 ports support storage expansion and UPS shutdown synchronization.
The 2U chassis has 12 hot-swappable bays holding 3.5" SATA or SS drives that can configured in multiple JBOD and RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 volumes with hot spare, online RAID level migration and volume expansion. The px12 also supports storage pools, which enable array drives to be grouped together by similar size and data protection mechanism.
The px12 is certified for VMware vSphere 5, Citrix XenServer 5.6, and Windows Server 2003/2008/2008 R2 and supports block level iSCSI targets and support for SCSI-3 persistent reservations. Supported network file protocols include CIFS/SMB/Rally, NFS, AFP/Bonjour, FTP, TFTP, HTTP, HTTPS, WebDAV, Windows DFS and SNMP.
Other software features include Iomega Personal Cloud technology for secure remote access and replication, USB print serving, support for up to 12 UPnP network cameras by Axis and Panasonic, Axis Video Hosting System for local to hosted cloud video storage and management, UPnP / DLNA / iTunes media servers and more.
Backup features include Apple Time Machine support, Iomega copy jobs for backup to/from rsync servers and SMB shares, and Amazon S3 and Mozy cloud backup.
