NETGEAR Expands NAS Offerings with ReadyNAS 210 Series

Sets New Performance Standard for Networked Attached Storage with ReadyNAS 212 and 214 offering real-time transcoding capability on a quad-core ARM platform

NETGEAR announced the launch of 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) sets a new standard for consumer NAS by delivering real-time 1080p high-definition video transcoding so you can view your HD content on any screen, anywhere at home and over the Internet. ReadyNAS 212 and 214 are the first ARM-based designs to deliver that capability in a cost-effective storage solution. As a result, ReadyNAS 212 and 214 offer the best performance in their value class for storing, streaming, transcoding, and protecting all your precious photos, videos and files.

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. They are the obvious choice for media enthusiasts, photo hobbyists, and home power users with lots of HD multimedia files to store and retrieve.

ReadyNAS 212 and 214 are the fastest consumer NAS devices in the market, delivering 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“NETGEAR ReadyNAS is the undisputed choice in storage for streaming, transcoding video, and protecting your data. 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”. Further, he added, “whether your priority is speed, data protection, or ease of use, there’s just not another NAS that offers this price / performance combination”.

ReadyCLOUD for ReadyNAS 212 and 214 is the only personal cloud that embeds a VPN tunnel with zero-configuration setup while offering access, sharing and synchronization capabilities. You can easily sync folders between your ReadyNAS and PCs, and also benefit from Time Machine backup support for all the Macs in your home.
The NETGEAR RN212 is priced at INR 30,698 while RN214 is priced at INR 38,396. Backed by 3 years warranty, the NETGEAR RN212 and RN214 are available through authorized NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels and retail partners in India.
