Seagate Business Storage delivers centralized backup, data protection and remote access to critical business information in capacities ranging from 2TB up to 16TBs.
The Business Storage provides a cost-effective solution that works with existing cloud backup and online sharing services.
The NAS includes backup software for Windows PCs and is also compatible with Apple’s Time Machine for backup of Mac OSX computers.
Seagate Business Storage is a private cloud, which can reside in a single office location and is capable of providing access via both Android and iOS applications for mobile devices and a secure networked connection from any notebook.
“Business demand for additional storage will continue to grow and the public cloud is not always the most cost effective or perceived securest option for small businesses,” said Liz Conner, senior research analyst for personal & entry level storage at IDC.
Scott Horn, vice president of Marketing for Seagate, says Seagate has designed this new networked attached storage to address the changing needs that a growing small business faces.
