Seagate Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS Review

Software Features


NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One compliments the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.




Seagate didn't try to stuff every consumer feature on Linux in the Business Storage NAS. You can't use the system to watch live TV or monitor a download site for a Hollywood blockbuster, but you do get the usual suspects for business storage needs. Multiple protocol support including iSCSI channel your data to the disk array.


RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 are supported as well as Seagate's SimplyRAID. Out of the box, our system recognized a SimplyRAID with 1 drive fail protection, a RAID 5 like feature that works with disks of different volumes.




Once installed in the rack and powered up, a setup wizard starts and guides the user through setup, a two-step process.
