Hi,
We have a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo NAS drive used as our primary data shares on our small network.
I would like to have another NAS drive on the same network that contains a mirror of these shares for use in the event of failure of the first drive. Virsioning would be an extra benefit.
Can I have suggestions for the best software for this job?

Sounds like you should contact netgear and see if they have autosync between NAS boxes first, some have a hidden switch and put the name of the mirror in there, at least one of the prototype boxes I evaluated had such a thing in the box.

Another option is in making a linux box instead of second NAS.
For linux box you could use AMD APU E350 or INTEL Atom D525, they both are ITX form factor. Very low power usage.
After that, install openfiler or freenas (WEB front end) and setup file synchronization from 1st NAS server. For redundancy you could use software raid (mdadm)
