ZyXEL Releases NAS326 Personal Cloud Solution for Remote Access to Data and Files

New High-Performance Personal Cloud Solution Enables Easy Sharing, Access and Security for Personal Data Files in the Cloud

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2016) - ZyXEL Communications, a world-leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, has announced the release of a new 2 bay personal cloud storage device, the NAS326. The NAS326 functions in conjunction with the ZyXEL Drive -- a personal cloud app, that allows users to share and back up files instantly by registering an account on the myZyXELcloud portal.

The ZyXEL NAS326 is equipped with a high performance processor to provide up to 105MB/sec reading and writing data, and allows users to backup files and stream UHD 4K video without performance stutter. Additionally, the NAS326's RAID 1 capability clones data from one drive to a backup drive, protecting users' personal files from accidental damage or corruption.

The NAS326 serves as a personal cloud for easy and secure remote file access, backup, syncing and sharing. With ZyXEL's FindMe, it takes four easy steps spanning about 15 seconds to set up the NAS with one's home network. The ZyXEL Drive mobile app also offers the freedom and flexibility to remote access and sharing from any mobile device. In addition, the NAS326 enables users to play videos, music, or display photos on the big screen through TV streaming devices such as Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku 3, Amazon Fire TV or with Samsung and LG Smart TVs.

"With the new OS and tools, ZyXEL cloud appliances now offer matching or even surpassing usability and benefits over a public cloud," said Shawn Rogers, market developer manager for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "These tools are meant to break technical barriers that frequently stop people from trying a personal cloud. Those looking for a balance between convenience and security should really try out ZyXEL's NAS326 and discover how easy and simple using a personal cloud can be."

Unlike popular public cloud sharing applications, which utilize public storage, require recurring fees and provide services that can be changed or cancelled without warning, users of the NAS326 and ZyXEL Drive have full control over all data on their own private cloud with no recurring fees. Storage can be freely allocated between multiple users and shared freely, bypassing firewalls. Users can easily backup and restore all data from family phones and tablets in the event of accidents.

Benefits of the NAS326 and ZyXEL Drive include:

  • High performance processor to provide up to 105MB/sec reading/writing data
  • Easy steps to start using ZyXEL NAS with FindMe
  • Sharing and remote access capabilities from wherever and whenever
  • Ability to create a shared cloud space for people without NAS
  • Data protection from accidents with RAID 1 capability
  • User friendly interface

The NAS326 and ZyXEL Drive present the ultimate combination of security and ease when sharing and backing up irreplaceable memories. ZyXEL Drive is also compatible with the NAS540 and NAS520.

The NAS326 will be available for purchase in two weeks at all e-tailers and retails for $149.99 (MSRP).
