Iomega is introducing a new series of high-performance desktop and rackmount NAS devices for companies ranging from small businesses to the enterprise level.

Built with EMC storage technology and server-class drives, the aptly-named Iomega StorCenter PX Server Class Series is touted to be like "EMC’s enterprise network storage products" at a lesser cost.

Customers have a lot of storage capacity options to choose from here with this series. Here's a look at the NAS product capacity choices:

  • 4-bay and 6-bay desktop models ranging from diskless to 18TB of network storage
  • 4-bay and 12-bay rackmount models ranging from diskless to 36TB of network storage

Additional specs include Intel processors (i.e. Atom, Celeron, Core 2 Duo), a new version of EMC's LifeLine software designed for industrial environments, and 1TB, 2TB or 3TB server class SATA drives. Users can also opt to use solid state drives in lieu of HDDs on both models.

One suggested purpose for these machines is storing and sharing video surveillance footage securely from virtually anywhere.

Iomega boasts that the StorCenter PX Server Class Series is capable of supporting the installation of four to 48 IP cameras per device "at a fraction of the cost of traditional DVR/NVR installations."

Additional security precautions in place for this use case and others include encrypting data volumes with password protection and support for Secure File Transfer Protocol for transferring data over networks.

The Iomega StorCenter PX Server Class series is available immediately, each with a 3-year warranty and options service plans to extend that coverage. Pricing ranges from $699.99 for the px4-300d Network Storage Server Class Series and goes up to $4,999.99 for the rackmount px12-350r.

    I have a 6-bay combo NAS device, media sharing hub, and general purpose server. It's called a PC and it cost me $375.
