IRVINE, Calif., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Storage software developer Paragon Software Group today announced that NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, selected Paragon's NTFS for Linux technology for embedding into NETGEAR's Linux-based network product lines including their new N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, which feature NETGEAR's ReadySHARE® USB Storage Access for transparent communication with Windows-formatted storage devices.
The NETGEAR N900 router provides up to 900 megabits per second of combined WiFi speed and greater WiFi range for maximum performance with even the most demanding tasks, such as wireless 3D and HD video streaming, multiplayer gaming and backup of large files. Paragon's NTFS for Linux enables high-speed access to Windows (NTFS-formatted) USB hard drives, and delivers the highest read/write performance in the market -- which is so critical where multiple users on a network will be accessing files and streaming multimedia content simultaneously. Consumers using the NETGEAR N900 will enjoy high bandwidth storage sharing with worry-free compatibility regardless of operating systems.
