For business collaboration and data protection, the new Seagate Business Storage 1U rackmounts provide the performance needed for businesses to support multiple simultaneous connections and enable everyone within an organization to easily backup and share files. Designed to backup all Windows and Mac computers within a network to a single centralized location, these 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 to deliver superior performance along with a clean, intuitive web-based dashboard for managing the server from the office or the road. Cloud Integration and Security Anywhere access is delivered seamlessly with the integrated Wuala cloud service and business-focused apps for PC Mac and smartphone and tablet. The free Wuala app automatically syncs files and make them accessible from mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Android devices to improve employees’ productivity while on the go. And because the files are encrypted and transferred directly from the NAS to the recipients, business-critical files remain private and secure. “Thousands of small and medium businesses around the world already depend on Seagate NAS solutions. Now we’re taking the lead by delivering the industry’s highest density storage solution,” said Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate. “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.”
