The NVX Pioneer Edition is the next generation 4-bay ReadyNAS network attached storage
model for advanced home users and media enthusiasts. Placed in the center of your digital
home, it will revolutionize your home network both today and tomorrow! Advanced features,
high storage capacity and class-leading performance let you store, share and protect files and
digital media like never before.
Powered by an Intel® advanced embedded processor and the RAIDiator™ operating system, the
ReadyNAS NVX Pioneer Edition offers the most sophisticated network storage for advanced homes
with class-leading performance. Its 75+ megabytes per second read and write throughputs allow
you easily backup multiple computers, transfer large files and stream multimedia data all at the
same time.
The compact design of the ReadyNAS NVX Pioneer Edition is just slightly larger than the 4 drives
stacked. Smart energy-saving modes like disk spin-down, a scheduled power timer, and Wakeon-LAN allow standby or power-off modes when not in use, lowering power bills, extending
system life and consuming fewer resources. And, with strategically placed fans, the ReadyNAS
NVX Pioneer runs quietly enough to live in any home, yet keeps your disks and components
safely cooled.
With an easy Web browser interface and a simple Setup Wizard, the ReadyNAS can be up and
running in just minutes**. Advanced features like SMART disk pre-failure warnings, scheduled
disk scrubbing, background file system checking and offsite backup ensure data integrity. Email
alerts keep you informed wherever you are and auto shutdown options ensure the integrity of
your data in case of emergency. X-RAID2 keeps your data protected* and allows instant capacity
expansion through online background migration to bigger disks. The ReadyNAS NVX Pioneer Edition is a capable home media server. Monster capacity and
lightning performance let you centralize all of your data into one safe place. Streaming services
let you experience digital media content locally or over the Web with your network DVD player,
DVR, Xbox 360, PS3, NETGEAR EVA Digital Entertainer and more, without the need for a PC.

ReadyNAS NVXTM Pioneer Edition
Music Sharing
A built-in Apple iTunes® server shares music to devices throughout your whole house.
Other wireless music devices and software add-ons like the Logitech Squeezebox™ and
SqueezeCenter, Sonos® Digital music systems, Roku™ SoundBridge and many more
are supported.
Friendly Mac Support
The ReadyNAS NVX Pioneer Edition is Mac-friendly, supporting Apple Filing Protocol (AFP),
allowing native Macintosh® files to be used without limitations. It also supports Apple Time
Machine™, so multiple Mac users can now back up to a single centralized, secure, highperformance network storage device and recover data with ease. Apple’s Bonjour® software
technology enables auto-discovery of a device over a LAN and Macintosh status monitoring
widgets are supported.
Superior X-RAID2 Technology
ReadyNAS products are dedicated to storage and manage your disks with grace and power,
giving you peace of mind protection. X-RAID2 provides invisible, on-the-fly expansion, so you
can add capacity without interruption. It eliminates disk reformatting and data shuffling!
All ReadyNAS systems include multiple backup layers that you can customize to fit your needs.
First, protect Windows and Mac clients with our included CDP software. Then, backup to a USB
drive on demand or on a schedule. Replication is a cinch between two ReadyNAS systems, and
finally the ReadyNAS Vault option can move files and folders to an offsite secure data center for
disaster recovery. It’s all built in!
Flexible Backups
The ReadyNAS NVX Pioneer Edition has 3 USB 2.0 ports. Share your USB printers by connecting
them to the ReadyNAS and using the built-in print server. Hook up external USB hard disks and
share them on your network. Or, connect a camera and automatically dump your photos to a
safe and central location!
