Networking solutions provider Netgear has launched its ReadyNAS 210 Series of world-class Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices for home and home office networks with new two- and four-bay models in India.
Based on a quad-core 1.4GHz ARM Cortex processor, ReadyNAS 212 (RN212) and ReadyNAS 214 (RN214) is said to deliver real-time 1080p high-definition video transcoding allowing viewing of HD content on any screen. ReadyNAS 212 and 214 are the first ARM-based designs to deliver that capability in a cost-effective storage solution.
ReadyNAS 212 and 214 are the only consumer NAS to offer a combination of real-time 1080p HD streaming and transcoding (MPEG4, H.264 and other popular CODECs), wire-speed anti-virus scanning with near-zero loss of throughput, and up to double the throughput with dual Ethernet interfaces in Link Aggregation mode.
ReadyNAS 212 and 214 delivers up to 200MBps/read (megabytes per second) and 160MBps/write throughput. As more 802.11ac WiFi devices are connected to the home network, the one gigabit-per-second speed of an Ethernet port has increasingly become a bottleneck.
ReadyNAS 212 and 214 offer you the option of connecting the second Ethernet port on your ReadyNAS in a Link Aggregation mode with a NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router (R8500), or NETGEAR ProSAFE Gigabit Smart Switch, or an IEEE 802.3ad compliant network device. This “port trunking” capability means that ReadyNAS 212 and 214 can deliver up to twice the throughput compared to a single Ethernet cable connection.
Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Regional Director (India and SAARC), Netgear, said, “If you are serious about storing, streaming and sharing HD multimedia content, then ReadyNAS 212 and 214 offers you the most cost-effective storage option in the market today.”
