ReadyNAS™ Pro Pioneer Edition is the newest and fastest member of the award-winning
ReadyNAS product family. But speed is just one element of the Pro. With X-RAID2, RAID 6, and
hot spare support, the ReadyNAS Pro automates future volume expansion and provides the
utmost option in data protection. File and media streaming services are second to none, and
the comprehensive backup support helps to prevent a data loss catastrophe. The performance
and system design of the ReadyNAS Pro continues the tradition of excellence and again raises
the bar for the ultimate network storage solution.
Class-leading Performance
Powered by an Intel® multi-core processor, the ReadyNAS Pro Pioneer Edition makes no
compromise on performance. While other NAS tout the ability to do a couple of HD streams,
the Pro can easily handle 14 simultaneous 1080p HD streams. While you may not need 14 HD
streams, or being able to read and write to the Pro at blistering 100+ megabytes per second,
the extra performance cushion gives you the option of having the Pro multitask for you without
missing a beat.
Easy Deployment
and Management
With an easy Web browser interface and Setup Wizard, the ReadyNAS can be configured quickly
and with minimal effort. Traditional file servers can take hours to understand and set up, can be
very expensive with client licensing, and they don’t have the comprehensive system monitoring
and email alerts that are a staple of all ReadyNAS devices. And, with advanced features such as
SMART disk pre-failure warnings and scheduled disk scrubbing in conjunction with background
file system checking, you can be sure that maintaining data integrity is the highest priority with
the ReadyNAS Pro.
X-RAID2™ Auto-Expandable
RAID Technology
X-RAID2 is the 2nd generation of NETGEAR’s proven patent-pending Auto-Expandable X-RAID
technology. With X-RAID2, not only will you have peace of mind that your data is protected
from a disk failure, but as you need more disk space, expanding your data volume is as easy as
adding more drives into available drive bays and letting the expansion occur automatically in
the background, all while your data remains online. Additionally, as your storage requirement
grows, you can hotswap your disks with larger capacity ones, and X-RAID2 automatically and
incrementally expands your storage “vertically.” No other NAS device in this class can do this
without reformatting your disks and shuffling your data back and forth.

RAID 6 and Hot Spare for
Extra Redundancy
In addition to X-RAID2, the ReadyNAS Pro supports FlexRAID™ mode where you can configure
your data volume with RAID 0, 1, 5, or 6, with the option of a hot spare. The addition of RAID 6
on the Pro provides an extra level of protection against two simultaneous disk failures. The extra
drive bays provided by the 6-bay ReadyNAS Pro makes RAID 6 and hot spare practical options
to increase redundancy and further reduce the window in which the ReadyNAS may be left in an
unprotected state.
Ultimate File and Media
Streaming Server
The number of computers and external drives that currently hold your data in your home or
office can certainly make locating, sharing, and backing up files an arduous task. The ReadyNAS
Pro can simplify that. Whether serving data to your PC, Mac, or Linux computers, or streaming
digital media content to your Xbox 360®, PS3, Squeezebox™, or NETGEAR’s own EVA Digital
Entertainer, you can now centralize all of that data in one safe place. In fact, with the various
streaming services such as iTunes® and UPnP already built-in, the ReadyNAS Pro will stream
directly to your digital media players without the need for your computer to be powered on.
Flexible Backups
A sound backup strategy is important at work and at home. Relying on manually copying of
your important files is tedious, error-prone, and can be forgotten until a catastrophe occurs.
Because the ReadyNAS Pro is always available on the network, a better approach is to eliminate
the uncertainty and automate the backups. With the NTI Shadow for ReadyNAS that is included
with the Pro, simply select the folders on your PC or Mac you want to backup, specify the
ReadyNAS as the target, and you’re set to go. Shadow uses CDP (continuous data protection)
technology so backups occur as soon as your files are saved. And with versioning support, you
can easily revert back to any number of past revisions of your files.
Additionally, the ReadyNAS Pro comes with an integrated Backup Manager with which you
can initiate the backups straight from the ReadyNAS. The Backup Manager allows you to
create backup jobs between the ReadyNAS and a remote PC, Mac, or Linux system, another
ReadyNAS, or a USB drive attached to the ReadyNAS, and you can choose to run the job on a
schedule or by simply pressing the Backup button on the front of the chassis.
Advanced System Design
At a mere ten inches tall and seven inches wide, the compact design of the ReadyNAS Pro is just
slightly larger than the 6 drives that it houses. Smart energy-saving modes like disk spin-down,
scheduled power timer, and Wake-on-LAN allows the Pro to perform at its highest capacity
when needed, but allows it to switch to standby or power-off mode when it’s not being used.
And with strategically placed fans, the ReadyNAS Pro runs quietly, yet keeps your disks and
components safely cooled.
