Iomega intros wireless NAS servers
Iomega Corp. announced on Thursday the introduction of two new network-attached storage (NAS) servers under the NAS 100d model name. Shipping later this month in 160GB (US$499) and 250GB ($599) capacities, both servers feature 802.11b/g support that acts as a wireless access point and as a wireless node on a Wi-Fi network, complete with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption for secure data transfers. In addition, they include dual USB 2.0 ports for adding external hard drives, one 10/100 Ethernet port, 64MB DDR SDRAM and Iomega Automatic Backup software. Even though the servers run on Intel Xcale processors, their setup and configurations utilities are Web-based, so any client can access them.
