  • Provides extra storage that can be conveniently shared with all your computers
    The ReadyNAS Duo is perfect for homes with more than one computer. Unlike a USB drive, the ReadyNAS connects to the network and is simultaneously accessible via all connected Windows or Macintosh computers.
  • Easily create a personal webpage that shares stored photos with friends and family
    If there is a broadband Internet connection and a home router, the ReadyNAS can be set up to provide secure access to all the stored files remotely via the Internet.
  • Optional “spare” hard drive protects against drive failure by making a duplicate copy of all your data
    For added protection of stored data, an optional second hard disk drive can be installed. The spare hard drive will keep an extra copy of all the data and instantly take over if the first hard drive should fail.
  • Supports most network music, picture and video players
    Advanced media streaming support allows the ReadyNAS to directly serve media, with no PC required, to devices such as the NETGEAR EVA products, Sonos® Digital Music System, Logitech Squeezebox™, Apple iTunes® clients, Sony Playstation® 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360®.
  • Mac-friendly
    All ReadyNAS systems support the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) and Apple Time Machine™ so multiple Mac users can use a central location to share files and do backups. Bonjour® software enables auto-discovery and Macintosh status monitoring widgets are supported.
