With EMC's LifeLine software, users can configure up to one terabyte of network storage for backing up all of their files as well as streaming music, photos, video and other multimedia files between computers, networked televisions, game consoles and other digital home entertainment devices.
"Iomega's new Home Media Network Hard Drive is a powerful network storage device that's so straightforward, even a novice can be backing up multiple computers and streaming media around their home in less than five minutes," said Jonathan Huberman, president of Iomega and the Consumer and Small Business Products Division of EMC.
"The Home Media Network Drive does the serious work of backing up and protecting digital files, but it also does the fun things like streaming photos and videos to game consoles, digital picture frames and networked TVs, as well as automatically feeding music into iTunes for easy playback - all for little more than the cost of a USB direct-attached desktop hard drive with comparable storage capacity."
The hard drive has a Linux operating system and application suite and it supports iTunes and Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified devices.
It is also a network storage solution that provides data backup and protection.
During the set-up process, users choose files and folders for scheduled automatic backups from all the PCs and Macs on the network.
Home networks utilising the Home Media Network Hard Drive also get online backup with EMC's MozyHome online backup service.
