Sophisticated Networking: Ethernet port bonding for load balancing, high performance bandwidth aggregation or failover; Virtual LAN (VLAN) capability simplifies management and operation by enabling devices to be logically, but not physically in the same subnet.

iSCSI Support: Provides block-level access for the most efficient storage utilization, especially for database and email application performance.

Active Directory Support: Allows the domain users and groups to authenticate to the Active Directory service to access the StorCenter ix12.

Email Alerts: If the device detects a problem, an email alert is sent to one or more email addresses.

Remote Access: Connect from anywhere on the Internet to access content or manage the device.

System Dashboard: Provides a one-stop summary for status information on space utilization, device, peripheral, and backup status.

VMware Certified: HCL certified NAS (NFS) and iSCSI storage for VMware ESX (vSphere).

Microsoft Window Server Certified: Windows Server Catalog certified iSCSI storage for Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Citirx Certified: HCL certified NAS (NFS) and iSCSI storage for Citrix XenServer.

Replication: The StorCenter ix12 supports device-to-device (D2D) asynchronous replication based on the end-user determined policy. Replication uses the secure rsync, rsync, or remote CIFS protocols.

Security Camera: Connect Axis and/or Panasonic network security cameras and the StorCenter ix12 captures and stores video without the need of a dedicated PC.

Total Data Protection:
- Multiple network interface cards (NICs) can be configured for I/O failover
- Robust username and password authorized access or integration with Microsoft Active Directory Service
- Configure with RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 to assure data integrity if a drive fails.
- RSA BSAFE technology protects installs and upgrades.

Software Included: Iomega StorCenter Manager
