In addition to this, the ix2-200 also supports Raid 1 for disk mirroring; provides email notifications for system health and Smart status; an event log for tracking file access on a per user basis; iSCSI functionality; DLNA and UPnP media streaming; iTunes DAAP streaming; the monitoring of up to five IP cameras;remote access; and the obligatory BitTorrent client.

The obligatory Torrent client is included

Out of all of these features, I foresee a problem with only one: remote access. Users now expect to be able to access their files over the internet, usually making use of a DNS service which monitors changing IP addresses and links them to a fixed domain name. While many of us use services such as the free DynDNS, Iomega has opted to utilise TZO DNS, which provides one year of free use, but charges $11 (£7) per year afterwards. Other Nas box makers allow their users to configure their own services, but not Iomega.

Instead, it has taken a rather untraditional approach with the StorCenter Manager software, effectively eliminating the client-side configuration panel and replacing it with a small task-bar app which constantly monitors the location of the ix2-200 and acts simply as a gateway to the web configuration page. The remainder of configuration is simple: a wizard walks you through an initial setup which will suffice for most users, and then advanced users can have access to the full configuration panel.
