By CIOReview | Monday, January 18, 2016

CUPERTINO, CA: NAS HDD 8TB from Seagate promises to be a breakthrough tech for the Small-and-Medium-Business (SMB) and Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) type industries, delivering a robust and high-capacity performance. The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) 8TB is the highest capacity drive developed to provide server storage along with Redundant Array of Independent Drive (RAID) and Network Attached Storage (NAS).

The drive is well suited for smaller business as it offers lower fault-tolerance levels and low cost acquisition and maintenance. It is an ideal fit for 1 to 8 bays which means the storage can be varied from 8TB up to 64TB. This, along with the availability of NAS would mean a reduction in expenditure on other expensive storage devices.

Since it offers a Workload Rate Limit (WRL) of up to 180TB/year, management of the workloads becomes less tedious.  With a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of almost one million hours and an optional three-year Rescue Data Recovery service to protect against potential data loss, it is the most reliable and robust HDD available in the market.

With the trend of global data creation bound northward and expected to eclipse nearly 44 zettabytes by 2020, the need for the NAS HDDs is only going to increase. Researches done by Seagate show that most SMBs opt for NAS HDDs due to its quality, lower cost and ease-of-use.
The new Seagate NAS HDD is available in 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8TB variants that are optimized for multiple applications including backup recovery, multimedia storage, archiving, file sharing and virtualization.

“NAS solutions are rapidly becoming the storage medium of choice for organizations with limited IT resources that need a quick and easy solution to manage their data. The new Seagate 8TB drives will give our customers incredible capacity to handle the huge volumes of data their users are creating and sharing,” says Chad Chiang, Product Manager, Synology.
