The display is also helpful when shutting the NAS down, giving an indication of when to press the power button to do a safe shutdown, or to know free space with a quick glance. Netgear also includes a front-mount USB port with a dedicated backup button for quickly pulling content from another source and dumping it into your RAID. The back is interesting besides just the dual-Ethernet hookups and two USB ports. Given the larger size of this model, supporting 6 3. Two other items that will not go unnoticed are the massive cooling fans NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro Business Edition NAS RAIDiator the power supply and NAS body.

Both fans offer plenty of cooling capacity, with the ability to scale down speeds and noise when not needed. At startup you can hear the main fan spin up to full speed and gracefully go back to idle speeds as the startup processes reach a fully booted state. The NAS design is very user-friendly, especially when it comes to hot-swapping drives. Some models might require you to unscrew covers to access the drive bays, while on the ReadyNAS you simply swing the front cover open and unlatch a drive. The metal rails easily line up in the NAS body without requiring much hassle to get the drive inserted properly. Even the latch makes a satisfying "ker-chunk" when NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro Business Edition NAS RAIDiator or installing a new drive in each individual bay.

As someone who is used to seeing thin metal or plastic drive sleds in most home or small business gear, you can definitely see how some of Netgear's enterprise expertise has rubbed off on the ReadyNAS's design. The drive sleds themselves are very durable and keep their shape when pulling out or pushing back in. The sleds also have a small slide to lock the release bar to prevent accidental drive removal. During the normal course of use, no one should really have to open it up, but if for whatever reason you need to, it's pretty simple.


To access the motherboard and see the power supply, the side covers of the Ultra 6 slide off once you remove two or three screws from the back that hold the panels in place. Once those are removed, slide the panel back about 1cm, and pull it away from the frame. Inside we see the backplane, SeaSonic power supply, and more metal acting as the backbone of the NAS unit.

This model really is the best built NAS we have ever reviewed. Even the side panels are thicker than what you find on most high-end desktop cases. After removing the cover on the other side, you are greeted with the back of the motherboard, with all the fun stuff NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro Business Edition NAS RAIDiator the other side. Once a handful of Phillips head screws are removed, you are able to carefully pry the motherboard out of the chassis. Just make sure you remember where the wires go, since none of them are keyed to give an indication of how they plug back in.

The motherboard is a custom design, based around the Intel Atom processor.

Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 6 Review (RNDU6000)

Its nice to see NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro Business Edition NAS RAIDiator the RAM is also user-upgradable Netgear even includes an un-used slot for expansion! Software The Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 6 doesn't have the best looking software interface, but it does get the job done in the functionality department. As with all NAS boxes these days, the main administration of the device is via a web interface. Having these upgrade possibilities is always nice, but the RN performs fine with the memory it was given. However, it did make us jump through a couple of slightly annoying hoops early on.


Using any technology that Windows users have installed by default would have been preferable to invoking Java. The sync routine took eight hours to convince itself that two drives that it just formatted were equally empty, amazingly.

There may have been a perfectly good reason why it did this, but we received no explanation from the system for a job that took a third of a day, and seemed utterly pointless. With that exercise out of the way, the RN became as slick to use and administer as the very best competitor devices, namely those made by Synology and QNAP. Apps For those wanting to lock horns with Synology NAS products, the true battleground is app selection. Both support Docker development, configured as a local DNS server or an NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro Business Edition NAS RAIDiator torrent client. There are relatively few places these machines exclusively own, and for an admin with Debian experience, there are few practical limits to what you can do with the RN This app recently ended development and has now been superseded by TVMosaic.

One strong aspect of the feature base is the backup controls that allow you to create an elaborate multi-layered plan to secure the contents of the system and any network storage in its vicinity.
