Seagate announced five NAS products in a range of capacities from 2TB to 30TB and performance suited for the home office to small businesses with up to 50 employees. The Seagate NAS and NAS Pro lines set the standard for ease-of-use by introducing a intuitive operating system, NAS OS 4, together with hardware designed for small businesses without dedicated IT resources.
Seagate NAS and NAS Pro provide secure access to files by creating a private cloud, also enabling access to files from a centralized location, while providing shared access for clients and partners through Seagate Sdrive software – a private cloud that physically resides on Seagate NAS. With Sdrive, access to your private cloud is as seamless and intuitive as saving files to an external drive. Files on Sdrive are also accessible from a smartphone or tablet with free mobile apps.
Another key feature of Seagate NAS OS 4 is support for add-on apps from both Seagate and third parties. The Seagate NAS and NAS Pro will come equipped with five essential apps at launch and more will be added in the future.
Seagate Antivirus: an app that scans the files stored on the NAS to help safeguard against viruses and malware.
Seagate Surveillance Manager: compatible with thousands of models of IP cameras, offering event and schedule-based recording and mobile apps for remote viewing.
WordPress: a free open-source publishing platform with sophisticated design features, which allows one to easily create a blog.
Own Cloud: an app that provides universal access to one’s files via the web, a computer or from mobile devices from locations outside of the network.
BitTorrent Sync: a tool to enable synching and sharing of unlimited files and folders across all trusted devices in a secure manner.
Both Seagate NAS and NAS Pro are available world-wide. Seagate NAS business storage is available in 2- and 4-bay configurations. With a Marvel ARM 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, Seagate NAS is designed to address the storage needs of small office and home offices with up to 25 employees.
