Iomega Updates StorCenter ix2 NAS

Native support for BitTorrent has been added, allowing for torrenting without the need of a PC. The StorCenter ix2 isn't the first to offer this, but itis always a welcome upgrade for those that utilize it on their computers.

Folder quotas, jumbo frames and the Apple File protocol have been added as well, increasing performance and versitility for some users.

Finally, the ix2 will receive remote-access capibiliteies. The service will be free for the first year and Iomega will charge $9.95 a year after that. This will allow the NAS to be used as a web-based FTP. Custom URL's will be able to be utilized for an additional fee.

"With the simplest set-up process in the industry, the ix2 not only provides home and small business network storage users with such important features as media serving, Bluetooth and video surveillance capabilities, now we've added remote access so users can connect to their files from anywhere in the world, as well as the new standard in peer-to-peer file sharing and much more," said Jonathan Huberman, president of Iomega and the Consumer and Small Business Products Division of EMC, in a statement. "That's the power of network computing with Iomega and EMC."
