The High-Rely NetSwap 200 computer backup NAS system is ideal for repetitive daily media (removable hard drive) rotation routines. NetSwap 200 features a removable drive bay, capable of sharing to the network via Gigabit Ethernet. Our durable design implements solid connections that will not wear down or break the hard disk’s SATA port, making it possible to remove and replace media for thousands of cycles. Also, an internal auto backup hard disk for data replication can be enabled. Designed as a purpose-built alternative to consumer NAS devices, our specialized NetSwap backup NAS system enables administrators to manage server backup data onto a hot-swapped 3.5″ HRC
Data retention is very important to us, which is why we built our removable backup drives to protect archived data in a durable tray enclosure. After all, what good is removable storage if it can’t be taken off-site? With the threat of maliciously deleted files and virus infections, or natural disasters such as fire, flood, or theft, removable media becomes a professional necessity. Simply, use of off-line Removable Media is one of the BEST ways to assure data security because if it’s not connected, it can’t be hacked, deleted, infected, maliciously encrypted or downloaded! And our High-Rely NetSwap 200 removable hard drives (media) provide the answer. High-Rely warranties all backup devices for one year, with extended dynamic support contracts available for up to three years that include advance replacement – including shipping costs to and from our factory.
The NetSwap 200 backup system features replication with other High-Rely NetSwap appliances, as well as rsync targets. In addition, NetSwap will replicate with popular cloud vendors such as: Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, DreamHost DreamCloud, and Dropbox. NetSwap also features:
NetSwap 200 includes an internal hard disk that matches capacity with its removable backup media, and can automatically mirrors the removable drive. We call this “Automatic Mirror Technology” (AMT), and it provides better protection for modern backup software. With AMT there are redundant historical copies of data in case corruption creeps into the continuous incremental chain. NetSwap 200 includes a proprietary HRIC hardware feature, which adds audible and visual alerts on top of standard email notifications by using special Watchdog circuitry to monitor the backup system and deliver ultimate stability.
Antiquated tape drives and RDX backup devices are easily replaced by our NetSwap computer backup system. You can also supplement or replace expensive monthly Cloud strategies with a locally-installed NetSwap solution. NetSwap offers CIFS and SMB connections (Windows shares), NFS (Linux, Unix, VMware Virtualization shares), or iSCSI (faster block level drive access).
Use any modern web browser to configure NetSwap, then use any Remote Management and Monitoring tool such as Labtech to monitor it. Our simple menu driven interface is similar to those used on consumer routers, making it simple to configure: IP address, machine name, and other basic settings. Multiple NetSwaps may be conveniently monitored and managed from our web browser based NetSwap Dashboard (works with NetSwap firmware versions 2.14 and higher). The NetSwap Dashboard is designed for the technician or administrator to manage and monitor all their NetSwaps whether LAN or WAN deployed, from one simple website.
The NetSwap 200 is a backup device with an internal 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, or 6TB fixed drive (included in price) that mirrors to hot swap removable drive(s) (Purchased separately). The system connects via Gigabit Ethernet and supports network shares or iSCSI. NetSwap is unique as a Network Connected Removable Disk (NCRD) with connectors designed for daily drive swap! The NetSwap 200 is the only NAS on the market made with a fully enclosed removable drive designed for better protection of daily drive swap and transport media. In addition, the system includes over the wire offsite replication to various cloud sites or other Netswaps.
NetSwap 200 Customers:
The removable drive and data drive can be formatted NTFS (Native Windows format) or EXT4 and will plug into our direct attached (USB3 or ESATA) line of storage products. Use your favorite software for backup and/or additional off-site (cloud) management.
The NetSwap 200 comes with internal 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10TB drive. We recommend you order your High-Rely Classic media to match the size of the internal drive. This allows you to swap drives and re-mirror the entire internal drive to the removable. Buy as many swap drives as you need for your setup.If these characteristics are what you’re looking for, the NetSwap 200 is the perfect hardware platform for your backup needs.
Important Note: In replication environments where files will be open and changing 24×7, the High-Rely “snapshot” feature can be used to track active file changes, providing integrity for the replication offsite. When using this snapshot feature the worst case scenario would require having twice the space on the sending side of replication job as is required for your full data set. For example, a very actively changing 1TB data set might require up to a 2TB drive on the sending side of the replication to allow room for the snapshot. While doubling space is overly conservative in most cases, it should be considered in drive size planning.
