CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Seagate Technology plc (STX) today announced Seagate Business Storage, its newest network-attached storage (NAS) product line for small office / home office (SOHO), remote mobile office (RMO) and small to medium-sized business organizations (SMBs). To address the changing needs of growing businesses, Seagate Business Storage delivers centralized backup, data protection and remote access to critical business information in capacities ranging from 2TB up to 16TBs.
For business collaboration and backup protection, the new Seagate Business Storage provides a secure cost-effective solution that works well with existing cloud backup and online sharing services. Business Storage’s centralized backup capability takes the guesswork out of providing employees with backup protection and sharing across multiple computing platforms. Designed to backup all PC and Mac computers in an organization to a single centralized location, this new NAS includes backup software for Windows PCs and is also compatible with Apple’s Time Machine® for backup of Mac OSX computers.
Today’s small businesses have new challenges with even the smallest of organizations consisting of employees working remotely. In this common scenario, sharing of information in a secure manner becomes essential to a business’s success. Seagate Business Storage is essentially 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. Additionally, for those important files that need increased protection, this new network attached storage also provides hardware encryption for select files.
“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. “We will continue to see local network attached storage provide one of the best options for these growing business. Security, data redundancy, and remote access are all features that will play vital role in the near term as well as the foreseeable future.”
Plug-n-play removable storage (USM)
The 2 and 4 Bay versions of Seagate Business Storage deliver maximum data protection by providing redundant backups of the information stored on the device. Also, the addition of a Universal Storage Module (USM) slot allows for plug-n-play removable external drives to be input and removed from the device for improved workflow and offsite backup capability.
“Seagate has spent a lot of time understanding small businesses and their storage needs, which in many cases are unique to them,” said Scott Horn, vice president of Marketing for Seagate. “Seagate has designed this new networked attached storage to address the changing needs that a growing small business faces. We’re excited for our small business customers to get their hands on this innovative new product. We’ve added features that will give them additional flexibility in data access and workflow, along with the peace of mind that comes with the Seagate brand.”

Seagate Business Storage comes in array of capacities to meet nearly every business need:
