Since finalizing the acquisition of LaCie, Seagate has released several new client and SMB network storage systems to the market. The company's innovative eight-drive design that fits in a 1U space really started it off.
Today we're looking at Seagate's latest design for the small business market, a model designed for 25 to 50 users, the NAS Pro.
Hardware Specifications and Pricing
Modern NAS servers have moved beyond data storage through a wire network. In order to get the most out of a NAS, you need to look at the extra I/O hardware, and the mountain of potential software features.
Seagate released the NAS and NAS Pro on the same day. The NAS is a consumer / entry-level SMB product that shares the same chassis as the NAS Pro, but the similarities end there. The NAS Pro ships in three versions, 2-Bay, 4-Bay, and 6-Bay designs. From there, each unit branches into a number of SKUs based on disk configuration, and total capacity. The unit we're testing today has four-drive bays, each filled with Seagate NAS 4TB HDDs, totaling 16TB of raw storage capacity.
The NAS Pro 4-Bay unit supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, and JBOD. The NAS Pro 4-Bay unit ships in SimplyRAID, Seagate's simple to configure, anyone in the office can do it, redundant configuration. That means you can use the NAS Pro right out of the box, with very little setup time involved.
Deep in the heart of the NAS Pro is an Intel Dual-Core 1.7GHz C2000 Series processor, and 2GB of RAM. IO connectivity comes from two gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0, and one USB 2.0 port.
Prices range from $499.99 for the 4-Bay Diskless model to $1899.99 for the 20TB model filled with four 5TB Seagate NAS HDDs. The system we're testing today uses four 4TB Seagate NAS HDDs for a total of 16TB, and costs $1299.99 at the time of writing. Seagate covers the NAS Pro product line with a three-year warranty.
