Yes, it’s quite a mouthful. Iomega, a company owned by EMC that provides network storage for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced the launch of their StorCenter ix12-300r Network Storage Array. The device ships with 4TB of storage but can be expanded to a max of 24TB after filling up its 12 drive bays. The ix12-300r can be configured to work with RAID 1, 5, 6, and 10. It utilizes four Gigabit Ethernet connections as well as three USB 2.0 ports to support an uninterruptible power supply. The device is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 2GB of RAM to support I/O workloads and software functionality.
The ix12-300r will be available in the U.S. on May 10th from CDW at $4,999.99 for the 4TB configuration and comes with the EMC Lifeline backup and management software.
