BizTech Rides the Netgear ReadyNAS Review

The Netgear ReadyNAS 314, a four-bay desktop network-attached storage device, can provide expandability and advanced features — like snapshotting and cloud replication — normally only found in enterprise NAS, at a manageable price even for a small company.

Each ReadyNAS 314 comes with four bays that can support any standard 2.5- or 3.5-inch disks. Mounting drives is extremely simple. I just lined them up and slid them into place until they locked.

It also had onboard antivirus. During my test-drive, I reached into my virus zoo and grabbed a couple remote access Trojans (RATs) that the lab sometimes uses for testing AV programs. I tried to drop them directly on the ReadyNAS 314 and also add them by first placing them in a folder that the device snapshotted.
