This friday I received a package. I felt 10-years old again, it was like unwrapping a Christmas present. One hell of a Christmas present I must say and I want to thank EMC and especially Chad Sakac! I un-boxed the two Iomega IX4-200d units and turned them on.
After a couple of minutes I had them up and running. It’s a matter of turning them on and wait until they receive an ip-address from your DHCP server. Of course I changed the DHCP address to a fixed address, this is literally a couple of clicks.
I guess that’s the story of the Iomega IX4-200d, everything is just a couple of clicks. You want to enable iSCSI? Three clicks. You want to set Quotas? Three clicks. You want to add a user? Three clicks… I see a trend don’t you?!
Within a matter of minutes I did not only had both devices running I also setup a replication schedule for the CIFS share… That’s another great thing about this device: CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, Apple File Sharing and FTP. There should at least be one that fits your needs. I will try to do some decent testing soon when I receive my new desktop and a decent 1Gb switch…
For now I can recommend the Iomega IX4-200d to everyone. They are simple to use and look awesome.
