Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Iomega has put a bit of style back in network attached storage with a new low-end system that can hold a whopping 480GB of data.

Starting next month, storage hungry types in North America will seethe NAS 200d Series system arrive. Iomega plans to ship 320GB and 480GB versions of the NAS (network attached storage) server - both running Microsoft's Windows Storage Server 2003. The 320GB box starts at $1,399, making it a decent central storage choice for small companies and a departmental type system for large companies.

Customers will likely be pleased with the NAS 200d's size and shape. Iomega has rolled out a slick silver cube design. This complements Iomega' rack-mountable NAS systems and means that a small company can tuck the box away under a desk with relative ease. And, if having a stylish data center is important to you, the NAS 200d beckons.

Both the 320GB and 480GB models are packed with 160GB Serial ATA drives. The low-cost drives are again meant to appeal to smaller companies. Later this year, Iomega will ship a "kit" so that removable Rev hard drives can be used with the 200d chassis.

The 200d has up to two 10/100/1000 megabit-per-second Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports and one UltraSCSI 320 port. The box will be available worldwide by the third quarter. ®
