Seagate goes after small business market with new NAS devices

Elias Plastiras | Aug. 22, 2014
A couple of new network attached storage (NAS) devices have been launched by Seagate, with the company aiming at home office workers as well as office environments with up to 50 people. The new units are simply called Seagate NAS and Seagate NAS Pro, and the company boasts Seagate technology throughout the device, from the hard drives, to the chassis and the software.

Seagate NAS Pro with two drive bays.

Both devices can be purchased either with disks or without, with Seagate citing better value for money for the models that come pre-configured with drives, especially since they use Seagate's NAS-specific hard drives, which are designed for 24x7 NAS operation, rather than regular desktop operation.

Pricing for the Seagate NAS starts at $399 for the two-bay, 2TB version, with the two-bay, 8TB version costing $699. The four-bay, 4TB version is $699, while the four-bay 16TB version is $1399.

Pricing for the Seagate NAS Pro starts at $749 for the two-bay 4TB version, and goes up to $2599 for the six-bay 24TB version.

The NAS devices are supported by a three-year warranty, which encompasses both the chassis and the drives inside. When purchased pre-configured with the drives, the specific model of each hard drive is known, and a faulty drive can be swapped out and replaced without the entire NAS being shipped off.
