The Netgear ReadyNAS RN422 2-bay diskless high-performance NAS media server is down to $254.99 on Amazon. This is the lowest we have ever seen for the RN422 NAS. It usually sells for around $300 and has never dropped below $275 before.
A network-attached storage device is like a computer that only connects to your network and is always online. You don’t use a keyboard and mouse to browse it, just a folder on a different computer. With several hard drives, as many as two in this case, and the minimum amount of power necessary to run it, you can keep all your movies, music, and files (including backups of laptops and other computers) safe and highly accessible.
The ReadyNAS RN422 has an Intel 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, and the latest 64-bit technology for high performance. The NAS data backup solution helps protect all your data, especially from ransomware and other malicious programs. You’ll be able to monitor and manage your server with the Netgear Insight app and connect it to the cloud using anything from Google Drive to Amazon Web Services .
The NAS is diskless, so you’ll want to add some high capacity hard drives. Since it has a maximum capacity of 20TB, you can combine two WD Red 10TB hard drives or pick a lower, and less expensive, capacity.
