Netgear Announces ReadyNAS Ultra For Advance Home Network Storage

Netgear is just now announcing details on the new ReadyNAS Ultra lineup of home network storage products aimed at advanced home users who have large digital media libraries – music, photos, video – and are looking for maximum performance.

Media enthusiasts will be able to run applications concurrently, yet efficiently, with these Intel Atom powered NAS devices.


Storing, protecting, sharing and enjoying your home media has never been easier.

The ReadyNAS Ultra takes advantage of some new partnerships Netgear has signed with TiVO, for storing recorded TV and ORB for streaming your stored media files to a host of mobile devices.

The ReadyNAS Ultra 4 (4 drive bay) and ReadyNAS Ultra 6 (6 drive bay) will be shipping soon. A diskless unit can be expected in the fall.

The ReadyNAS Ultra 6 is Netgear’s first 6 bay multimedia desktop storage system and offers both NAS and iSCSI SAN support; although few home users may appreciate the iSCSI side unless they are into virtualization.

The Ultra 6 offers over 90 MBps performance (up to 3 times the ReadyNAS Duo) along with the X-RAID2 RAID protection, ReadyNAS remote for secure drag and drop remote access and of course the optional ReadyNAS Vault online backup solution.

RAID 0/1/5/6 are also available if opting for the FlexRAID setup instead of X-RAID2.

The new ReadyNAS Ultra 4 will be similarly equipped with features.
