Seagate Delivers Storage Simplicity for Small Businesses with New Network Storage Portfolio
CUPERTINO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Seagate Technology (News - Alert) plc (NASDAQ:STX) today announced a new portfolio of
Networked Attached Storage (NAS) solutions specifically designed for
today's small businesses. The new portfolio includes five NAS products
in a range of capacities from 2TB to 30TB and performance perfectly
suited for the home office to small businesses with up to 50 employees.
NAS and NAS
Pro lines set the standard for ease-of-use by introducing a new

businesses without dedicated IT resources.

"Storage is a must have for businesses of today regardless of their size
or industry. So much of what businesses do is now stored in a digital
format, but at the same time storage is an area that may not be top of
mind for many small business professionals. The irony is that smart
storage is so essential to their growth," said Ramon
Ray of SmallBizTechnology.
"It is good to see a company like Seagate taking the guess work out of
network storage solutions and making it easy to set up and manage for a
small business without dedicated IT staff."
Industry's Most Intuitive User Interface
Today's businesses depend on their documents and data accessibility to
sustain and grow their business. Seagate provides the tools that a
growing business needs to ensure their data is secure and always
available. Building on the success of its award-winning operating
system, Seagate debuts the next generation with NAS OS 4. Now with a
redesigned Device Manager, users can manage preferences and configure
settings from a single location. It also includes the most demanded
features by our customers including App Manager and Seagate Sdrive&trde; for
remote access. Designed to be easily up and running without dedicated IT
support, Seagate NAS OS 4 helps small businesses stay organized and
focused. The NAS device management is effortless from a desktop, laptop,
tablet, or even a smartphone. Seagate NAS OS 4 is designed to keep
projects accessible, secure and always available.
Working Together Works Better - Hardware, Software and Support by
All products in Seagate's NAS portfolio are wholly developed and
supported by Seagate, which ensures a level of expertise that is not
delivered when customers are required to source individual components.
Each NAS is populated with Seagate's best-in-class NAS HDD drives in
capacities up to 5TB. The industry-leading NAS HDDs are designed
specifically for network storage applications, and are equipped with
advanced vibration tolerance and management capabilities, offering
enhanced reliability compared to standard desktop hard drives. In
addition, Seagate tests every product extensively before being shipped,
and backs them with an expert in-house tech support team.
Easy Remote Access Via Private Cloud
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.
"We understand that today's small businesses can benefit from a storage
solution that is easy to manage and provides 24/7 secure access to the
information that drives their businesses," said Scott Horn, vice
president of global marketing at Seagate. "From the individual
contractor to the fifty-employee office, Seagate has the right product
to match the needs of any size of small- to medium-sized business."
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
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
BitTorrent (News - Alert) Sync: a tool to enable synching and sharing of unlimited
files and folders across all trusted devices in a secure manner
