Iomega Expands StorCenter PX NAS Lineup

Posted by at 1:23 am on May 5, 2011

Iomega has debuted a new line of StorCenter PX HDD and solid-state compatible network storage devices in both desktop and rackmount styles aimed specifically at small- and medium-sized businesses, remote offices and distributed enterprises — each certified for VMWare, Citrix and Windows Server. The units sport dual-core Intel processors and storage capacities up to 18TB in the desktop form factor and 12TB in a rackmount array. The lineup features advanced data protection, flexible storage configurations and Iomega’s Personal Cloud technology.

The StorCenter PX series features desktop models with four-bay or six-bay configurations, and a four-bay rackmount model. The PX4-300d four-bay desktop model can be sold diskless or with 2, 4, 8 or 12TB of storage, while the PX6-300d comes either diskless or in configurations of 6, 12 or 18TB.

The PX4-300r four-bay is the rackmount model in a 1U form factor that includes many of the same features found in Iomega’s other rackmount network storage arrays, such as redundant power supplies. All three support multiple RAID levels with hot-swap drives, UPS support, user quotas and device-to-device replication.

The models all come with dual Gigabit Ethernet connections, 2GB of RAM, and support using either SATA hard drives or solid-state drives (SSDs) either from Iomega or approved third-party vendors. All feature Active Directory support, certification for VMware’s vSphere 4, Citrix’s XenServer and Windows Server 2003, 2008 and 2008r2. File-sharing with Mac and Linux as well as Windows is supported and uses iSCSI block access for greater efficiency.

The entire PX series also features an embedded AXIS Video Hosting System, allowing up to 12 AXIS IP security cameras to be used if desired. The two desktop models come with drive carriers that can accommodate both 2.5- and 3.5-inch HDD and SSD models. The PX4-300d starts at $800 for the diskless version, $1,200 for the 4TB pre-populated version, $2,300 for the 8TB version and the fully-populated 12TB model sells for $3,000.

The PX6-300d costs $1,200 for the diskless version, followed by a 6TB version ($1,700), a fully-populated 12TB version (6x2TB) for $3,300, or a fully-loaded 18TB (6x3TB drives) for $4,000. The rackmountable PX4-300r starts at $2,300 for the diskless version, and either fully-populated 8TB ($3,000) or 12TB ($3,800) versions. All models come with a three-year limited warranty with U.S.-based phone support open 13 hours a day, five days a week. Iomega also offers optional extended service plans that include 24×7 phone support and advanced replacement.

The computer chain CDW has a 30-day worldwide exclusive on the disk-populated models of all the StorCenter PX series, available now. The diskless versions are available throughout the U.S. from all usual resellers, distributors and DRM channel partners.
