Seagate has tossed its hat into the enterprise storage business with the Seagate Business Storage rackmount NAS, available in eight or four bay configurations that fit into 1U of space. The number of drives supported offers capacities ranging from four to 32 TB, and offers a cost effective solution for "small and medium-sized business organizations". These new offerings are controlled by the Seagate NAS OS and are compatible with backup software for Windows and Mac systems. VP of marketing Scott Horn said, "With the industry’s first hot-swappable 8-bay 1U rackmount NAS and our new 4-bay rackmount NAS, our new solutions will take the lead in this category with top performance and the highest capacity at an approachable price point for our SMB customers." The eight bay system will range in price from $2999.99 to $5999.99 and the four bay model will range from $1299.99 to $2499.99. Both models are expected to be available during this quarter, with the eight bay solution available in October.
