Apr 13, 2023
Full portfolio of products enables SMBs to master data at each touch point
LAS VEGAS, NV – NAB 2023 – Today, at the NAB 2023 conference, Seagate® Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage infrastructure solutions, and QNAP Systems Inc., a leading network attached storage (NAS) vendor, announced their integrated portfolio of edge to cloud enterprise storage solutions. Developed to help small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) and content creators manage data from edge to cloud, the portfolio delivers a range of innovative enterprise-scale solutions that include Seagate’s IronWolf™ Pro Hard Drives (HDD), QNAP’s high-capacity NAS solutions with Exos™ E series JBOD systems and Seagate Lyve™ Cloud.
“Businesses that use data at the edge often rely on NAS devices to store their data. As that data capacity increases and requires optimal protection, businesses are faced with the challenge of backing up data off site,” said BS Teh, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Seagate. “Seagate and QNAP have come together to address this challenge with an entire portfolio of secure mass capacity data solutions to help SMBs address pain points and address the rising costs of data storage and management.”
“Our ongoing collaboration with Seagate is essential in our commitment to providing the market with innovative and accessible storage solutions,” said Meiji Chang, General Manager of QNAP. “With this new strategic offering, we’ve responded to market demands while balancing cost and performance requirements.”
NAS Enterprise Storage Solutions for Multi-User Environments

Designed for high-end and enterprise QNAP NAS models, QNAP’s operating system combined with IronWolf Pro drives offers high-capacity storage, while centralizing data in a secure location and meeting the rigorous workflow demands in environments such as media and entertainment.
High Performance and Scalable Solutions for Multi-Petabyte-Scale Applications
Mass capacity storage continues to challenge businesses as IT professionals strive to develop cost-effective storage strategies. QNAP and Seagate will offer an integrated solution with high density and efficient management. Designed for 4K/8K multimedia, video surveillance, big data storage, and critical backups, QNAP’s enterprise ZFS-based QuTS hero NAS systems will support select models of Seagate Exos E series JBOD systems bringing peak performance, peace of mind for reliability, and high capacity. The scalable and cost-effective solution offers organizations a future-proof data storage option to tackle mass capacity challenges.
Cloud Solutions for Backup Data and Restore Challenges
As businesses experience exponential data growth, they face the challenge of insufficient on-premise storage capacity, inefficient backup options, and the risk of exposure to significant data loss.
