How To Prevent Data Loss
I have a friend in another part of the country we visited a little while ago who was telling us about when their Apple laptop hard drive crashed. At the time, the laptop was full of both business data and quite a bit of iTunes music.
All that data and iTunes music was lost. Now I don’t want to harp on people about backup too much, because it is easy to forget to do or think it was not that long ago.
But imagine a small, toaster size device that you could have in your home or office that was capable of holding ALL of your important data, ALL of your iTunes or Amazon music library that you probably have paid thousands of dollars for AND hold tons of video as well?
Now imagine being able to access that device from anywhere on your home wireless or wired network, and could even play music or movies stored on that device with iTunes player or your PlayStation.
Not done yet. Imagine being able to access that device from any workstation, laptop or iPad; does not matter if it’s running Windows, Apple or Linux.
Further, you could automatically backup your PC’s to that device.
THEN, you could even backup that device to an online backup service – automatically!
Sound too good to be true? Well it’s NOT!
The Netgear ReadyNAS family of Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are all capable of all of that and more.
For home use on a budget, take look at the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo.
For premium home use, or small office, check out the Netgear ReadyNAS NVX, my personal favorite!
Network storage devices are now mainstream. They take up very little space, are “green” so they do not use a lot of power – will go to “sleep” when not in use – and are extremely versatile.
Network Attached Storage is not just for the office, we have device reviews for home, small/medium business and the enterprise.
