NAS 100d enviro Iomega NAS 100d Wireless NAS Server

Iomega Corporation, a global leader in data storage, today announced the new
Iomega® NAS 100d entry-level network-attached storage (NAS) server. Available
this month in 160GB* and 250GB capacities, Iomega’s NAS 100d servers feature
wireless network capabilities and offer flexible, easily expandable network
storage for small business and home office networks.

“Today, everyone, no matter how small the business, wrestles with the problem of
securing critical data,” said Chris McPherson, managing director, Asia Pacific,
Iomega Pacific. “With the new NAS 100d server, Iomega is not only introducing an
easy-to-manage and reliable network storage device designed for a small budget,
we’re also giving users the flexibility of built-in wireless access and
archiving capability.”

NAS servers act as storage appliances on a computer network, giving Windows®,
Mac®, UNIX and Linux PCs a storage and backup location as well as simplifying
file sharing, backup, and recovery in mixed computing environments. The NAS 100d
server has the added convenience of wireless 802.11b/g networking capability for
even greater flexibility in small networks.

Wireless

Built-in wireless 802.11g support, backwards compatible with 802.11b, allows for
wireless network traffic between a network and the NAS 100d server at up to 54
megabits per second. All wireless connections can be secured using the WEP
(Wired Equivalent Privacy) protocol for robust protection against unauthorized
access. Wireless capability can be configured in one of two ways as needed:

As a wireless access point for other wireless PCs. In this configuration, the
NAS 100d server uses its standard 10/100 Fast Ethernet port to connect to the
network and provides users with a wireless “hot spot.”

As a wireless node on an existing Wi-Fi network. This option eliminates the
network cables and provides ultimate flexibility as to placement of the NAS 100d
server. In this configuration, the NAS 100d server uses its Wi-Fi interface to
connect to the network.

Expandable

Designed as a complete “network storage in a box” solution, the Iomega NAS 100d
has dual USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed USB) ports for expandability, letting users connect
additional external USB 2.0 hard drives for additional storage capacity needs.
Iomega also plans to add Iomega REV™ drive support in 2005, giving NAS 100d
users access to the latest in high-performance removable storage for archiving
data.

Easy To Install

Iomega’s NAS 100d server is a universal plug-and-play device, so setup is fast
and painless. Just connect the server to an available port on a router, switch
or hub. Then use a Web browser to log in and configure the device. After
configuration, the NAS 100d server is instantly available to all users on that
network, with no need to run a separate setup tool on each client PC.

Iomega Automatic Backup

Each NAS 100d server includes award-winning Iomega Automatic Backup software, a
complete client backup solution that supports multiple networked PCs. Iomega
Automatic Backup software installs in minutes and makes the process of backing
up completely automatic.

Users can set Iomega Automatic Backup software to do backups without user input.
They simply select the files and folders they want protected, and the software
takes care of the rest, without depending on the user to push a backup button or
run a backup program. Restoring a file from the Iomega NAS 100d server is just
as easy—just drag and drop.

Designed for Ordinary Users

The Iomega NAS 100d server is designed inside and out for simpler network
storage. The compact desktop package operates at a quiet 42.1dB, or less than
the sound level of a typical desktop PC (48dB). Users can install, configure and
manage it without wading through confusing and complicated operating procedures.
It is compatible with Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X environments, and it can
deliver instant access to shared storage via a wireless or standard Ethernet
network. Altogether, the NAS 100d server provides a complete “network storage in
a box” solution for small office/home office users, branch offices, and
workgroups.

Warranty and Support

Iomega NAS 100d customers receive a two-year warranty and extended-hours
telephone support from Iomega’s award-winning customer satisfaction
representatives. Extended warranty coverage (available at extra cost,
registration required) adds a third year of warranty support and 24×7 telephone
and email support.
