New, ground-breaking high-density storage system from Netgear

Targeted at users with ultra-large storage capacity needs who demand high levels of data reliability and security, the new Netgear ReadyNAS 4360X is a high-density rackmount storage system offering up to 1.32 petabytes capacity.
According to Tobie van Schalkwyk, Netgear business development manager at Duxbury Networking – the local Netgear distributor – the unit features a 132-bay single node network storage solution appropriate for applications such as multi-service/multi-tenant data centre operations, virtual machine backup, disaster recovery backup, archiving and IP surveillance camera video storage.
“The new ReadyNAS 4360X is a complete hardware and software data protection solution with high levels of performance and scalability in a single backup appliance,” he says. “It combines high-density storage capacity with usability and the option to synchronise with public cloud storage services to enhance the security and privacy of corporate data. It also features one of the lowest total cost of ownership [TCO] yardsticks for a storage solution in its class.”
According to Van Schalkwyk, the ReadyNAS 4360X includes Netgear’s ReadyCLOUD solution, enabling an instant, secure VPN-based private cloud to be established for local and remote data access and file sharing.
“With versatile sync and remote management capabilities, ReadyNAS 4360X users are able to enjoy the same unified interface regardless of location,” he says, adding that the unit is also easy to manage with Netgear’s Insight application that enables setup, monitoring and management from a mobile device.
Key features of the ReadyNAS 4360X include its operating system – ReadyNAS OS – which enables a flexible RAID configuration for performance, reliability and capacity optimisation by offering RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60 options.
In addition to supporting a Docker app enabling software developers, businesses and computing enthusiasts to build, run, test and deploy distributed Docker container applications, the ReadyNAS OS automatically installs ReadyDR (Disaster Recovery). This is a backup solution that performs incremental and block-level backup and restore to a second compatible ReadyNAS, ensuring LAN replication of backup files and databases.
The ReadyNAS 4360X keeps up with the demands of high workload virtualisation and applications with a performance-oriented architecture powered by an Intel Xeon E3-1225v5 Quad Core 3.3GHz Processor, along with 16GB of double data rate fourth-generation (DDR4) synchronous dynamic random-access memory and an error-correcting code (ECC) memory expandable to 64GB.
The ReadyNAS 4360X is equipped with four 1GBase-T ports and two 10 Gigabit-per-second network interfaces – either 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) copper or 10 Gigabit SFP+ (on a 4360S model).
Housed in a space-efficient rackmount 4U chassis offering built-in SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) or SATAIII (Serial AT Attachment III) selectable hard disk drive interfaces for all 60 bays, the ReadyNAS 4360X is designed to assist IT managers to optimise cost and performance. The SAS interfaces can connect to three ReadyNAS EDA2000 12-bay or EDA4000 24-bay expansion chassis.
