Test System Setup
Our Consumer NAS test 'system' is setup similar to what you have at home. Here we have the base of a GIGABYTE Z97X UD7 TH, housing an Intel Core i7 4770 with 16GB of RAM supporting. Our Operating System of choice is Windows 8 x64 Enterprise, with all available updates and patches installed on a pair of Samsung 840 SSDs.
On the networking side, we utilized the Intel PRO1000 PT Server Adapter with a direct connection to each NAS appliance. This eliminates the need for a switch, and any bottlenecks that may occur.
Setting up the Seagate NAS started with the NAS OS 4 wizard.
After we were done with setup, I was surprised to see how clean the Web GUI was for the Seagate NAS. As you can see above, we have fairly modern icons on a white background each pointing to a separate menu.
Here we have the system overview window. This section too carries a clean appearance, while giving you all the information you need to know about your NAS on one page.
Here we take a look at the services menu where we find the Seagate NAS does have access to SMB, AFP and FTP, along with iSCSI, which we normally don't see on consumer two-bay solutions.
When we went through the Apps for the Seagate NAS, I was quite surprised to see so few available. In total there were just these six.
One app I did want to play with was the surveillance manager. As you can see, it only gives you a single camera license by default.
