“We are thrilled to be recognized by the readers of Small Business Computing,” said Drew Meyer, NETGEAR’s director of Storage Product Marketing. “The ReadyNAS Duo was selected by our customers and reflects their satisfaction with a product that stores, shares and protects critical business data affordably. During this challenging economy, we are delighted to offer products that can effectively meet the unique needs of small businesses and home offices.”

“It’s no surprise that this versatile network storage device took top honors,” wrote the editors, who highlighted products in 20 categories for making a positive difference in their readers’ businesses. NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS Duo, which supports up to two SATA hard drives, is a stand-alone network storage system that enables customers to centralize data, share it with other users, computers and devices, and safeguard it against disasters and accidents. Unlike a USB drive, it connects to the network and is simultaneously accessible by all connected Windows, Macintosh®, and Linux/UNIX computers. Even file sharing over the Internet is drag-and-drop simple, and when equipped with the optional second drive, ReadyNAS Duo automatically mirrors data to protect against a disk failure. The ReadyNAS Duo comes in three configurations, with 500 GB, 750 GB, and 1,000 GB (1 TB) of raw storage.

NETGEAR’s highly acclaimed and award-winning ReadyNAS products are a leading choice for channel partners serving home and small business storage needs worldwide, as NETGEAR products reduce costs without sacrificing features.
