ReadyNAS NV+ v2 Software Specifications
The ReadyNAS Duo and NV+ v2 are designed for home use and small businesses. Nowadays, the typical home environment looks very similar to a small business anyways. When you have to combine the latest high tech devices, the legacy hardware and applications that everyone still has hanging around, the need to grant granular access to multiple terabytes of data with varying sensitivity, unified communications, and peripheral sharing - it's a daunting challenge. I also challenge you to tell me whether that last sentence refers to a small business or your own home network.
The Software feature list is small, but growing. There are a number of Add-Ons available in the ReadyNAS Community.

Web Browsers Supported

Network DVD/Blu-ray players
Sony® PlayStation® 3 and Microsoft® Xbox 360®
SONOS Digital Music Center
Encrypted network logins
Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
Microsoft Active Directory
USB Device Support
Besides the core features available in the NETGEAR's RAIDiator 5.3.5 (ARM) firmware for the ReadyNAS network attached storage products, further capabilities are available from both NETGEAR and the ReadyNAS Community. Factory add-ons can be installed easily through the Local Update tab in the FrontView application. If you don't find what you want there, check out the ReadyNAS Community Add-on site. Many of the add-ons are for the other two NAS platforms, x86 and SPARC, but more are being added for the ARM-based models all the time. It pays to check back, or put yourself on the subscription list.
