Seagate enters rackmount NAS market
By Staff Writer Published  October 31, 2013

At this year's GITEX Technology Week, Seagate Technology announced a broadening of its enterprise storage portfolio with the release of its Seagate Business Storage rackmount NAS, delivering centralised backup, data protection and remote access to critical information for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Available in 8-bay and 4-bay 1U rackmount form factors in capacities ranging from 4TB to 32TB, the new rackmounts are said to provide "the performance needed for businesses to support multiple simultaneous connections and enable everyone within an organisation to easily backup and share files". 

"Thousands of small and medium businesses around the world already depend on Seagate NAS solutions," said Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate.

"Now we're taking the lead by delivering the industry's highest density storage solution. With the industry's first hot-swappable 8-bay 1U rackmount NAS and our new 4-bay rackmount NAS, our new solutions will take the lead in this category with top performance and the highest capacity at an approachable price point for our SMB customers."

Designed to backup all Windows and Mac computers within a network to a single centralised location, the new NAS solutions are compatible with backup software for Windows PCs and are also compatible with Apple's Time Machine software for Mac OS X computers. Additionally, the 8-bay and 4-bay rackmount NAS solutions feature the new Seagate NAS OS, which has been redesigned from the ground up with a Web-based dashboard for managing the server from the office or the road.
