NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN102.
Back-up your life.
Being a mother is filled with unforgettable moments, milestones that are both happy and sad. Moments that are priceless and irreplaceable. I call myself a mama-razzi because I take pictures of every little moment and for that reason, I have so many pictures that I treasure. Since I work in media, I have just as many pictures and videos that I need to protect.
Unfortunately, many years ago, I learned that not backing up your files can be incredibly devastating. I learned that the hard way. My hard drive crashed and I lost absolutely everything. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was. That is why I know back-up all my files, back up my back-ups and back up those back-ups.
Build your own personal cloud, yes–you read that right. A cloud that is private and only accessible to those that you allow and a tool that can help you back up all of your devices. I know with our family, we all have devices and the more we use them, the more files we acquire.
ReadyNAS devices can be managed through NETGEAR ReadyCLOUD – a powerful way to gain all the benefits of public cloud storage, but without the ongoing subscription costs or the serious privacy risks. With ReadyCLOUD, you can access, manage and share files stored on your ReadyNAS from anywhere, from any web browser, using any web-connected device, so you enjoy the same single, unified web interface whether you’re at home or away. Its Google Drive™-style easy accessibility and Dropbox®-like capabilities such as sharing files with a single click create a secure, private, personal cloud experience. Sharing content has never been easier or safer.
Peace of Mind.
Setting up the NETGEAR ReadyNAS was pretty simple. I had my brother give me a hand and I was shocked at how easy it really was. I could have set it up myself, no problem. You can download the app and back up your files right from your phone with the ReadyCloud Remote App. Below, you can see that I am backing up my entire phone with a click of a button. How simple is that?
They are worth it, I would pay anything to get back the files and pictures that I lost a few years ago. I also love that I can give my siblings access and they can add their pictures too.
Easily Stream and Share:
- Powerful media server using Plex, iTunes or DLNA.
- 1.2GHz high performance processor for uninterrupted streaming.
- Drag and drop photos for easy saving and sharing.
- Free mobile app for anywhere cloud access.
Make Things Simple.
The ReadyNAS cloud system is the perfect time-saving cloud based tool. Being a writer, I take a lot of pictures and the app saves me a lot of extra steps so I can access my pictures from my phone to PC. After you snap a phone picture and load it directly onto your own ReadyNAS system, you can access the image later on your computer and it will be there when you need it.
When you love something, you need to protect it. Don’t learn the hard way like I did! You can purchase the NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN102 starting at $126.99. Whether you’re a mama-razzi like me or anyone who appreciates their pictures, files or work. If we are honest about it, that is pretty much everyone.
