Seagate has introduced what it claims are the industry’s highest-capacity four-bay and two-bay desktop network attached storage devices, which it is aiming at small businesses
Initially, both bits of kit will come pre-populated with 3TB drives in each bay and will be offered for 30-days through Seagate.com as well as a pair of selected online retailers.
The NAS boxes feature hardware-based encryption, with the added precaution of email Event notification which alerts the user to status changes to the server.
The BlackArmor NAS 440 server is configured with RAID 5 and ships with 10 backup software licences out-of-the-box, while the BlackArmor NAS 220 server ships with RAID 1 configuration for automatic data mirroring and five backup software licences.
Seagate said that for the first 30 days, CDW will provide the 12TB BlackArmor NAS 440 for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,899.99, and NewEgg will sell the BlackArmor NAS 220 6TB for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $649.99.
