Iomega's Big Network Storage for Small Business

This ain't no desktop NAS box, no sir. Iomega's new network storage array offers enterprise features to satisfy the needs of up to 250 users.

Small business continues to benefit from the ripple effect of Iomega's purchase by storage giant EMC. The latest network attached storage array from Iomega, dubbed the StorCenter ix12-300r, supports up to 250 people. It also features enterprise-quality network storage features without the heftier enterprise-quality price tag. EnterpriseStorageForum has the details.

Iomega has unveiled a new unified data storage array that moves the EMC (NYSE: EMC) division further up market, but one analyst thinks the new offering still leaves a sweet spot of the network-attached storage (NAS) market to rival NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP).

The new Iomega StorCenter ix12-300r Network Storage array combines NAS and iSCSI connectivity for small and medium businesses (SMBs) and enterprise workgroups, departments and branch offices. Pricing starts at $4,999 for 4TB, while a 24TB 2U version sells for $10,000.
