The main differences between the ReadyNAS 516 introduced in March and the ReadyDATA 516 boil down to features aimed at business users. These include:

  • support for solid state and SAS drives
  • block-level replication (including LUNs)
  • block-level snapshots
  • deduplication
  • checksum guarantees
  • scalability to 240TB via eSATA expansion

The ReadyDATA 516 starts shipping at the end of this month. Estimated street price for the RDD516 diskless chassis is $1799. Drives must be purchased from NETGEAR and come in 100 GB SSD ($685), 2 TB ($400), 3 TB ($530) and 4 TB ($899) "packs".
