Network Attached Storage is “big,” as in, a good solution for the big data storage needs of small businesses and organizations and the ever-increasing storage requirements of families who have digitized their music, photo and movie collections onto home servers. But many NAS devices don't come with their own internal hard drive, leaving consumers and IT directors with yet another purchasing decision to make.
Enter Seagate. The leading storage solutions manufacturer has introduced a new line of NAS storage products, appropriately named (drumroll, please...) Seagate NAS HDD. The name can't get much easier to remember and the purpose can't be more obvious. Designed for home servers, NAS solutions, small business file sharing and backup servers, the drives will be available in capacities up to 4TB.
The drives have a 5900 RPM spin rate and use an SATA3 interface. A five-bay NAS enclosure built with 4TB drives can store up to 20 TB of data. Boasting near-silent operation, plug-and-play installation, and fast read rates, the drives will come with a three-year manufacturer warranty. With a mean time of 1 million hours before failure, it will be a while before you can expect to call 24 Hour Data for service or data recovery. But when you do, our HDD data recovery specialists will be ready, with all the tools for NAS hard drive data recovery at our disposal.
If you're ready to make the jump to NAS storage in your home or small business, these new hard disk drives may be the solution.
