The 1100 is built around an "enterprise-hardened" embedded Linux operating system and Infrant's custom network storage processor and requires no additional software installation or per-user licensing agreements. The 1100 has three security modes (share, user and domain for ADS integration), built-in system monitoring with e-mail alerts and a journaling file system. Network file system support includes Microsoft Windows (SMB/CIFS), Apple Mac OSX (AFP), Linux and Unix (NFS) operating systems.
The ReadyNAS 1100 is currently available and comes in four different configurations: a core unit without hard drives ($999); 1-TB pre-loaded ($1,575); 2-TB pre-loaded ($2,495); and 3-TB pre-loaded ($3,395). (All prices are U.S. MSRP.) The product comes bundled with five user licenses of EMC Retrospect backup and recovery software and carries a 2-year extended warranty.
