ReadyNAS™ NV+ v2 was designed specifically for power users and home offices. Never before has there been available a cost-conscious network attached storage (NAS) appliance packed with robust high-end server features, including Gigabit Ethernet, hardware RAID, system monitoring capabilities and built-in backup. The NV+ v2 couples out-of-the-box deployment and easy management with robust file serving and data redundancy.

Easy Deployment and Management

With an easy Web browser interface and setup wizard, the NV+ v2 can be configured with minimal effort — saving you valuable time. Traditional file servers can take hours to configure and, even once up and running, don’t have built-in system monitoring and email alerts. Automatic alerts give you the peace of mind that things are running smoothly because if trouble should arise, you will be notified.


Supporting hardware accelerated RAID (redundant array of independent disks) levels 0, 1, 5 and ReadyNAS’s own X-RAID2™ technology, the NV+ v2 ensures full data redundancy with protection against hardware failure – something previously only available in high-end servers. If one drive fails, the data volumes can still be rebuilt with the remaining drives. Without RAID, once a failure occurs, you risk losing all of the data stored on the drive.

X-RAID2 Technology

ReadyNAS’s patent pending X-RAID2 technology automates the volume expansion for you as you scale from 1 drive to 4 drives. Most NAS devices on the market aren’t future-proof. You can’t add or replace disks for larger capacity. ReadyNAS allows you to start with one disk, then add the additional drives over time, without reconfiguring the system and shuffling the data. Additionally, as disk capacity becomes larger and cheaper, you can replace all four disks, one by one, while X-RAID2 automatically manages the RAID details for you.


All ReadyNAS systems include multiple backup layers that you can customize to fit your needs. First, protect Windows and Mac clients with our included CDP software. Then, take a snapshot of your ReadyNAS data to ensure a recovery point. Next, backup to a USB drive on demand or on a schedule. Replication is a cinch between two ReadyNAS systems, and finally the ReadyNAS Vault option can move files and folders to an offsite secure data center for disaster recovery. It’s all built in!

File Serving and Media Streaming

ReadyNAS is a single centralized source for all of your digital data. The variety of digital devices and hard drives that currently house the data in your home and office can make locating a particular file quite arduous. ReadyNAS can bring all of that data together for fast and easy file serving to multiple clients simultaneously. If it’s video or other high-definition media you are working with, you can use your ReadyNAS for streaming to multiple devices at the same time. ReadyNAS also provides DLNA Certified media streaming to a wide variety of digital media devices (such as NETGEAR EVA products or Microsoft Xbox 360™).

Advanced System Design

The industrial design and ultra compact form factor of the ReadyNAS makes it perfect for any home office or small business. Standing only eight inches tall and five inches wide, it can fit in any entertainment center or on any desk without taking up much space or making much noise. ReadyNAS also offers low power consumption and a special energy-saving mode that allows you to automate startup and shutdown.
