    Welcome to the new Iomega StorCenter px12-400r Network Storage Array

    The StorCenter px12-400r utilizes the Intel Core i3 3.3 GHz Ivy Bridge Processor to support demanding workloads such as virtualization, deduplication, database management and video surveillance. Other performance and reliability features include 4 GB of DDR3 memory, four 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports, and support for 10 GbE through optional PCI card (when available; sold separately).

    Available in diskless (0TB) as well as partially and fully populated configurations, the StorCenter px12-400r empowers users with the option to start small in terms of storage capacity, or provide their own HDDs and grow as workloads and storage capacity dictate. The px12-400r is qualified with a broad range of 1 TB, 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB Server Class HDDs, topping out at 48 TB of storage (12 x 4 TB). For users who start small in storage capacity, Iomega offers four-drive disk packs to enable expansion to 8- and 12-drive configurations.

    The new StorCenter px12-400r is compatible with multiple virtualization platforms, including VMware vSphere 5.0, Citrix XenServer, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008R2.

    Iomega's latest network storage array operates as an ideal iSCSI target, providing block-level access for the most efficient storage utilization, especially for backup, database and email application performance. Other business class features include Windows Active Directory Trusted Domains, Microsoft Cluster Server and Hyper-V Live Migration support.

    Software Enhancements

    The new StorCenter px12-400r runs the industry-leading McAfee VirusScan Enterprise product natively on the storage, giving smaller businesses and others added protection from viruses and other malicious threats. McAfee VirusScan Enterprise is an endpoint security product that requires no external server.

    The included EMC Atmos Cloud Connector lets users backup and share data using Iomega network storage devices as the source and Atmos cloud technology as the target. Users can setup cloud folders and configure jobs to automatically copy data to any Atmos cloud.

    With EMC Avamar support on the StorCenter px12-400r, users have the industry's first storage product that natively supports EMC's industry-leading Avamar sub-file deduplication for remote office/branch office backup.

    The StorCenter px12-400r can also run Linux applications created with Iomega's LifeLine Software Development Kit (SDK), now available free of charge.
