Third party applications can be installed using the embedded application
Data Organization and Access: Windows DFS
organizes folders and files on a network, such that they appear to be all in one
directory tree on a single Iomega StorCenter system, even if the folders reside
on many devices in many different locations. WebDAV (Web-based Distributed
Authoring and Versioning) enables viewing, adding, or deleting files on a
StorCenter from the web, via HTTP or HTTPS for added security.
· Automatic hard drive spin-down assure
the most efficient (minimal) power consumption.
· Scheduled Power: Automatically power
on or turn off your Iomega StorCenter at a pre-selected time schedule.
· Wake-On-LAN: Powers on your Iomega
StorCenter when a “magic-packet” wake-up signal is sent over the
network.(Wake-On-LAN magic packet application not included)

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Support:
Enables unattended system shutdown via the USB port without data loss in the
case of power failure.
Simple Management: Fast, three step set up
with an intuitive web-based interface. Web interface can be accessed locally or
remotely. Configuration Backup and Restore: allows you to back up and restore
system configuration information. Backing up a configuration saves various
system properties, including users, groups, device identification, and Share
names and permissions.
System Status: Consolidated resource on
space utilization, device information, and status. In addition, you can manage
controls such as device restart from here.
SMART Hard Drive Monitor:
Continually monitors and reports on the health of all drives in the Iomega
