NETGEAR Stora brings easy-to-use, Internet-connected storage
NETGEAR, Inc. has announced NETGEAR Stora, a new, easy-to-use network attached storage (NAS) device for home media.

Stora enables consumers to easily centralise photos, music, movies and files and use them on nearly any network device. With a smooth user interface designed for non-technical users, Stora lets consumers easily share their photos and videos with friends without the time-consuming process of uploading them to Internet sites or transferring them over email.

Through an intuitive and graphical user interface on www.MyStora.com, users and their designated friends and relatives can remotely access their media files from any Internet-connected device, such as laptops, PCs and smartphones.

“With the amount of music, movies and photos we increasingly download, storage is quickly becoming a necessity and the Stora really is a device that everyone can use. It sports an incredibly user-friendly interface, is compatible with any platform, affordable and comes with 1 terabyte of storage. You can share any of your files remotely with family and friends, such as photo albums of your latest holiday, by simply sending a link which can even be accessed on a mobile smartphone so no need to force anyone to join Facebook. It’s changing the face of storage in the home,” said Ryan Parker, managing director, NETGEAR Australia and New Zealand.

Compatible with Mac, PC and Linux systems, NETGEAR’s Stora puts music, movies, photos, and files at the heart of the home network, centralised in a single, safe location. Stora can centralise music collections and play music through iTunes. It can also automatically integrate content with remote photo frames and social networking sites such as Facebook. Stora can also serve content to other networked devices such as Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)-enabled photo frames, XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 game consoles, and iPhone and Blackberry mobile phones.

With two standard drive bays that automatically mirror data, Stora offers plug-and-play protection that safeguards data. Users can simply add a second drive, on the fly, without any tools. Stora also comes with automatic backup utilities for PCs and Macs, so individual system content is backed up regularly.

NETGEAR Stora (MS2110) comes with a 1 TB disk and one extra drive bay that can be used to insert an optional disk for mirroring. Stora is backed by a three-year warranty and 24/7 technical support and the Stora (MS2110) model has an rrp in New Zealand of NZ$419. An optional yearly premium service, to support additional remote access and third-party service integration such as Flickr and mobile phones, is available after an initial 30-day trial period. Premium service pricing in New Zealand to be confirmed.
