NETGEAR Details Embedded Cloud Storage
Earlier this week at the German trade show CeBIT, networking solutions provider Netgear (NASDAQ:NTGR) announced their entrance into the cloud storage space. In an extension of their fast growing network attached storage product, the ReadyNAS, the firm is offering a cloud based data protection service that comes pre-installed on new devices. A spokesperson described it as “the first NAS-Linked Online Disaster Recovery for consumers and SMBs.”
Closer inspection reveals that the service is delivered by existing cloud storage player ElephantDrive. The details of the partnership were not disclosed, but it looks like the accounts will differ dramatically from the regular small business storage accounts profiled in our directory.
