What is this?
General Description: This firmware update provides performance improvements for your StorCenter ix2-200, Cloud Edition. Iomega recommends this update for all units.

What's New:
Version - Release date 9/15/2011

Iomega StorCenter version 3.1.14 contains the following new features:
  • Active Directory Domain Trust
When you enable Active Directory trusted domains on your Iomega StorCenter
device, you can import users and groups from other trusted domains to your
device. This allows you to manage the various users and groups of your disparate
domains from one device. Users and groups from other domains have access to
features on your device, including accessing folders and documents in Shares, and
joining any Personal Cloud of which the device is a member.
  • Application Manager
Use the Application Manager to install your own custom applications or other
third-party applications to increase the feature ability of your Iomega StorCenter
device. Custom applications must be created with the Iomega StorCenter Software
Development Kit (SDK). The Application Manager lets you install, start, and stop
  • All-New User Interface
The user interface for the Iomega StorCenter device has been completely
redesigned for version 3.x. You’ll find everything to be easily accessible and more
user-friendly than ever before. You can see your device status at a glance,
configure every feature for your personal preferences; all through a simple, logical,
and intuitive user interface. You can even design your home page using your own
  • TFTP
Iomega StorCenter devices now support TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol),
which is a stripped-down form of FTP (File Transfer Protocol). TFTP requires
limited system resources and is useful for transferring small amounts of data
between computers over a network. TFTP only reads and writes files (or mail)
from/to a remote server to an Iomega StorCenter device. The maximum TFTP file
size is 32 MB.
  • Changing user access through NFS
New options are available through the NFS feature to determine how users access
an Iomega StorCenter device:

◆ Treat client users as guest allows all users, including root, to map as guest.
◆ Allow full access for client users other than root allows all users to map as
themselves but root maps as guest.
◆ Allow all client users full access allows all users to map as themselves,
including root.
  • Home Page and Home Page Settings
The Home Page is a landing page for your Iomega StorCenter device that you can
optionally display each time a user accesses the device. The Home Page can
display a slideshow of pictures and provide access to public Shares on your device.
It's a useful feature for providing access to all public data on your device without
requiring a user to log in to the device.
The new Home Page Options feature, located on the All Features page, allows you
to configure and personalize your Iomega StorCenter device.
  • Amazon S3
Connect to the Amazon S3 secure online storage service directly from your Iomega
StorCenter device. Amazon S3 is a secure online storage service which allows you
to back up and restore your Iomega StorCenter device to the cloud. Files can be
deleted from your Iomega StorCenter Amazon S3 share without being deleted
from the Amazon S3 cloud service. You can also restore deleted files to your
Iomega StorCenter device from the Amazon S3 cloud service.
  • Mozy Backup
Connect to the Mozy online backup service directly from your Iomega StorCenter
device. The Mozy online backup service allows you to create a Mozy account,
connect your Iomega StorCenter device to the account, back up Shares and folders
to the Mozy cloud service, and restore files as needed from the Mozy cloud.
  • Support Link
The new Iomega StorCenter device user interface is easier than ever. However,
should you have questions, help is just a click away. The new Support link, located
on the All Features page, is an easy way to find answers, solutions, support, and
updates for your Iomega StorCenter device.
  • User Quotas
Storage space is a precious resource. Quotas let you set a maximum capacity for
users on your Iomega StorCenter device to prevent any of them from consuming
too much space. This is very useful in the office for allocating just the right amount
of space for employees, or at home to limit the amount of space your children use
for their music and game files. To enable quotas, be sure to enable security on your
device, then navigate to the Settings tab, and click Quotas.
  • Changing File Level Security
A new folder option allows Iomega StorCenter device users to change access
permissions separately from the device. When the option is enabled, users on an
Iomega StorCenter device can set file and folder permissions through other
programs, such as Windows Explorer or Mac Finder.
  • AFP support with Active Directory
In previous releases, Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) was automatically disabled
when Active Directory was enabled on an Iomega StorCenter device. Now, AFP is
supported with Active Directory.
  • Windows Server 2008 Release 2 Active Directory Domain Support
In previous releases, Iomega StorCenter devices could join a Windows Server 2008
Release 2 Active Directory (AD) domain, but members of the AD domain could
not access secured folders. This restriction has been lifted.
  • Personal Cloud
Iomega Personal Cloud is a new technology that creates your own Internet
connected “cloud” network of StorCenter storage devices and personal computers.
This allows you to connect, share, copy, and protect your files within your
network. The files shared in your Personal Cloud are completely owned and
managed by you, so the content and accessibility is always under your control.
Personal Cloud is included with purchase of the latest Iomega StorCenter
products. There are no usage or subscription fees.

You can set up a Personal Cloud connection on your Iomega StorCenter device and
then invite members to join that cloud.

After joining, members can access data, perform Copy Job operations, use your
Iomega StorCenter device as a QuikProtect remote target, stream media from your
Iomega StorCenter device over the Internet, and use remote desktop to access
computers on the local network for your Iomega StorCenter device. Whether you
create your own Personal Cloud from your Iomega StorCenter device, or use a
subscription service, the cloud is accessible from anywhere you have an Internet

Note: Iomega’s Personal Cloud is designed for simple networks with UPnP routers. While it
may work in larger, more complex environments with multiple routers and firewalls, full
functionality requires extensive configuration, including manually forwarding ports. You
must be able to expose specific ports directly to the internet to implement the Personal
Cloud. Personal Cloud is supported in Active Directory environments. Depending on your
particular domain requirements, it may be possible to install the Cloud directly to the
domain controller, but Iomega does not support this configuration.

  • Active Folders
Active Folders offer automatic actions and sharing to help manage your content.
Enabling Active Folders allows you to associate a Share with an action that occurs
automatically when files are copied to the share.
For example, a Share may be set as a Facebook Active Folder. Once configured as
an Active Folder, pictures added to the Share automatically upload to your
Facebook account.

Active Folders can be configured for:

◆ Facebook, which automatically uploads photos or videos to your Facebook
account when new content is added to the Share.
◆ Flickr, which automatically uploads photos to your Flickr account when new
content is added to the Share.
◆ Photo Resizing, which automatically resizes your photos when content is
added to the Share.
◆ Email Distribution, which automatically emails files, links to files, or both, to a
predefined group when content is added to the Share.
◆ YouTube, which automatically uploads movies and video files to YouTube
when content is added to the Share.
◆ Torrent Download, which automatically downloads files to the Shares when
content is added to the Share.

You can enable Active Folders on any Share. You can set only one Active Folder
option per Share.
  • Support for Mac operating system version 10.7 (Lion)
The Iomega StorCenter now supports Mac operating system version 10.7, also
known as Lion.
  • Support for Facebook Video Files
You can now upload and save video files to your Iomega StorCenter Facebook
  • Support for TimeMachine
The Iomega StorCenter now supports the Mac TimeMachine backup and restore
