Iomega, an EMC company and a global provider of data protection, has announced the next generation of its quad-drive desktop NAS appliance with the worldwide launch of the new Iomega(R) StorCenter(TM) ix4-200d.

  • And unique to this category of products VMware(R) certification for virtualization installations -- all at a starting price of less than $700.00.

Affordably priced for small businesses and home office use, the new Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d NAS appliance is now available to IT resellers worldwide via select distribution channels, and will be on display next week in the EMC booth at the VMworld 2009 tradeshow in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, Aug. 31 - Sept. 3.

"From device-to-device replication and iSCSI support to dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, VMware certification and other innovative and user-friendly features, the ix4-200d is an excellent yet affordable NAS appliance that gives smaller organizations and work groups not only cost-effective powerful network storage but many of the same sophisticated data management capabilities as a Fortune 100 corporation that no competitor can match."
