Based on enterprise-class EMC® storage technology, the new Iomega StorCenter ix2 provides up to 6TB* of network storage for small and medium-sized business networks and distributed or remote locations utilizing PC, Mac and Linux computers. The new StorCenter ix2 encompasses many advanced business capabilities usually not available to smaller organizations, including out-of-the-box video surveillance capabilities for up to five IP camera installations. Users can also utilize their choice of cloud backup capability with Mozy, Amazon S3 and EMC Atmos-enabled cloud backup services offered by service providers, as well as Iomega’s revolutionary Personal Cloud technology featuring unparalleled simplicity and versatility for data sharing and protection without any monthly fees or service costs.

“Affordable network storage for small businesses, distributed enterprises and others that effectively balances of ease-of-use in data management with advanced capabilities such as Cloud computing, virtual desktop deployments and video surveillance is the hallmark of the new StorCenter ix2,” said Praveen Sahai, Director of Sales, India & SAARC and Strategic Marketing- APJ, Iomega. “Our objective at Iomega is to bring the advantages and capabilities of network storage solutions with enterprise-level applications to small and mid-sized businesses in professional services and manufacturing as well as distributed enterprises in retail, banking and other vertical industries. The new StorCenter ix2 is exactly that kind of network storage solution — rich in versatile features and business capabilities and the first of several advanced Iomega network storage solutions coming in 2012.”

The new two-bay Iomega StorCenter ix2 Network Storage offers small businesses and others the flexible advantages of three different models: a diskless unit that allows users and channel partners the option to populate the device according to their specific storage needs and pricing preferences, especially in this time of hard disk drive shortages due to the Thailand flooding; a partially populated unit with one drive (1TB, 2TB or 3TB of total storage capacity) that gives users the freedom of choice to increase their storage capacity over time; and a fully populated unit with two drives (2TB, 4TB or 6TB of total storage capacity) for immediate RAID mirroring data protection and other multi-drive network storage capabilities.

All three configurations of the new Iomega StorCenter ix2 Network Storage — partially populated, fully populated and diskless — are expected to be available worldwide in February.
