It's not every day innovation comes to network attached storage products. The category has been around for many years, standards have been set and significant new features hard to come by. In a time when other manufacturers are adding consumer features to business products, Seagate came up with something fresh, a feature so large it can only be centered on making the format smaller.

 

The new Seagate Business Storage NAS doubles the capacity in a 1U form factor rackmount NAS from four 3.5" HDDs to eight. In order to achieve this, Seagate stepped away from the traditional front hotswap drive sled design and moved all HDDs to the inside of the server.

 

Sliding rack rails and an easy to open, toolless, top cover, still allow for easy access to HDDs. The result is a staggering 32TB business storage server in a 1.75" height package that runs cool and quiet.

 

Let's get started now and take a close look at this Seagate NAS.
