This article is about NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS Vault and the ReadyNAS Devices that come with a new Operating System (OS) for them called OS6. The new ReadyNAS devices that come with ReadyNAS OS6 installed on them are the following:
ReadyNAS 102, ReadyNAS 104, ReadyNAS 312, ReadyNAS 314, ReadyNAS 316, ReadyNAS 516 and ReadyNAS 2120.
With ReadyNAS Vault, your ReadyNAS data can be backed up securely to a remote secure data center. Your data is encrypted before it is sent over the Internet. Backup administration is over a 128-bit SSL connection, the same method that banks and financial institutions use.
The following figure illustrates two concepts: backing up data from a ReadyNAS system to the cloud and restoring backed-up data to a ReadyNAS system from the cloud.
