The 2TB (1 x 2TB) NAS Pro 2-Bay Network Storage Solution from Seagate is a complete network storage solution and private cloud designed for power users and business environments with up to 50 employees. This NAS and the hard drives it ships with are optimized for 24x7 (8,760 hours per year) use and have been designed for data-intensive business tasks such as photo and video editing, accessing large databases, multiple simultaneous system backups, and more.
Compatible with Windows and Mac, this NAS is powered by a 1.7 GHz Intel Dual Core processor (64-bit), which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 2GB DDR3 RAM will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs and each drive slot of the 2-Bay enclosure supports 3.5" SATA II 3 GB/s hard drives. This NAS will also integrate with your network using its dual built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports.
This NAS includes 2TB (1 x 2TB) of internal storage which are pre-configured and can help you save setup time compared to a traditional RAID configuration. However, if you want to change the default configuration, SimplyRAID technology, which is built into Seagate NAS OS 4, will help you choose the RAID configuration that best suits your needs by balancing performance, capacity, and redundancy. SimplyRAID also allows users to begin storing files and using the NAS as soon as their preferred configuration is selected.
So long as network connectivity is active, this NAS and its content may be remotely accessed using the Sdrive software for Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, and iPad. While using Windows and Mac, Sdrive will make the NAS appear as another drive connected to your computer so you can drag-and-drop, view thumbnails, and open files. While using a mobile device, Sdrive provides access to your files and enhanced security is maintained. All files are encrypted before leaving the NAS and can only be decrypted by your mobile device's Sdrive app and proper user credentials.
Seagate also has free apps available that seamlessly integrate with your NAS to provide additional levels of protection. With the App Manager in NAS OS 4, you may choose to install apps that will help enhance functionality, such as a surveillance app that turns the NAS into a recording solution for IP cameras. An anti-virus app is also available and will scan files and help identify potential threats to your NAS. This 2-Bay NAS includes an Ethernet cable and power cord.
