The Seagate 8TB 2-Bay Business Storage NAS is a complete network storage solution designed to keep businesses with up to 20 employees productive by creating a secure private cloud. With the included backup software for Windows (not compatible with Windows 8.1 Pro), Time Machine compatibility, and RAID protection, it is simple to keep your critical business files protected. It creates a shared space for your colleagues and clients to collaborate by storing files centrally. With the Global Access service, you can stay connected to your business from anywhere in the world with free apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
This storage features a Web interface where clients and coworkers can securely download and upload large files. You can retain complete ownership and control of your data and it is so easy to set up and use that there is no need to hire an IT professional.
The 2-Bay Business Storage NAS features almost everything that is needed to ensure complete protection of all the files stored on PC and Mac computers in your business. The included BlackArmor backup software for Windows PCs will take the hassle out of backing up multiple computers by automating the process. The software helps you protect data by backing up not only the files you store, but also the programs, settings, email and even the operating system on your local PCs. With this level of protection, you can restore the entire hard drive on a PC that has suffered a hardware failure. By supporting Time Machine software, this NAS offers the same level of data protection for all the Mac computers in your business.
This storage includes government-grade hardware encryption technology that helps protect data stored on the NAS devices. When you access files remotely, it also helps to protect your data-in-flight with SSL/TLS, the same technology that secures your information when banking online.
It features a USM (Universal Storage Module) slot that makes it simple and cost-effective to create off-site backups of your data. Start by docking a Seagate Backup Plus portable drive in the USM slot. With a touch of a button, you can transfer large files at higher speeds. Undock your portable drive and data, and you are ready to take your files with you or to a secure, off-site location.
The USM slot is also convenient for photographers, videographers, and other professionals who routinely bring back large files from the field. Use a Backup Plus portable drive throughout the day and when you are back at the office, slide the portable drive into the USM slot and with a touch of a button all of your work is transferred to a designated folder on the 2-bay NAS.
