ReadyNAS Ultra Plus units promise "the world's best streaming media experience for music, movies, photos and files", with up to 30% better performance than regular ReadyNAS Ultra units.
Like the rest of the Ultra range, they are TiVo compatible, and support Orb for streaming to mobile devices, and Skifta to extend DLNA connectivity across the Internet. They also work as conventional file servers, supporting CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS.
The devices can also be used as backup servers. Memeo Premium Backup licences are included, and units also work with Time Machine and Rsync.
Three models have been announced: Ultra 2 Plus (two bays, up to five concurrent streams), Ultra 4 Plus (four bays, 10 streams), and Ultra 6 Plus (six bays, 15 streams). The 3.5in SATA drives are hot-swappable.
