The Backup You Need
The Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS is great for backing up PCs in one central location. And because it’s compatible with Time Machine® software, it works perfectly for Macs too. For additional protection, the built-in Wuala™ cloud backup service enables simple yet secure offsite backup to Wuala’s geo-distributed cloud storage. For best-in-class security, data is encrypted before leaving the NAS and only the user retains the encryption key.
Your Own Private Cloud
Collaborate, share and get remote access to your files seamlessly and securely with the integrated Wuala™ cloud service and business-focused apps for PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets. The free Wuala™ apps automatically sync files and provide access from iPhone, iPad and Android devices, enabling employees to stay productive when travelling. Because all files are encrypted and transferred directly to recipients, your business-critical data remains private and secure.
The Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS boasts an intuitive design featuring eight, 3.5-inch hot-swappable drives and cable-free connections for easy storage capacity upgrades and maintenance. For quick serviceability or replacement, fans pop out easily without tools and the two built-in power supplies can slide out with a simple click of a tab. The design also includes a sliding rail kit and best-in-class cable management arm for simple, fast access.
No Time for Downtime
SimplyRAID™ technology automatically manages installed drives to give you the optimal blend of capacity and redundancy. The redundant power supplies and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports help to ensure increased reliability, data integrity and uptime. Both the ports and power supplies can be set up to failover (if one is down, the other still works) to help make sure your data is always available.
