Seagate® NAS HDDs are now available with Rescue Data Recovery Services by Seagate. Purchasing a drive with Seagate's Rescue plan provides 3-year data recovery at a fraction of the cost of third-party recovery services. Each NAS HDD is built and tested to provide industry-leading performance for small NAS systems in capacities up to 4TB. And NASWorks™ technology provides customized error recovery controls, advanced power management and vibration tolerance features. Furthermore, NAS error recovery controls help ensure drive health in RAID arrays. Specifically, NAS HDDs are designed for:
Built and tested to provide industry-leading performance, NAS HDDs are fine-tuned to quickly and reliably support home and business applications. By supporting multiple HD video streams and user profiles in a multi-drive environment, Seagate NASWorks reliably provides the performance demanded by NAS solutions. Custom-built features minimize the occurrence of common issues found in NAS applications.
NASWorks includes features such as extended error recovery controls, minimized vibration effects and advanced power management. Furthermore, NASWorks improves drive health and performance, delivering the 24x7 reliability demanded by 1- to 8-bay systems.
NASWorks: Ensuring Drive Health in RAID Arrays
NAS error recovery controls help ensure drives maintain the highest data integrity without compromising system performance. Working together with a RAID array, NAS error recovery controls protect your data where traditional desktop HDDs may fail and cause the RAID to start the time-consuming task of rebuilding the entire drive.
NASWorks: Enabling Performance in Multi-Drive Environments
Standard desktop drives can emit vibrations that become amplified in systems with two or more drives, compromising performance and data integrity. With the support of the NASWorks dual-plane balance, drive vibrations are dampened so that they can perform consistently and reliably in applications with one to eight drives.
High-Capacity NAS HDD
You can maximize your storage and minimize costs with up to 4TB on a single NAS HDD—that's enough for up to 800 thousand photos, one million songs or 500 hours of HD video content at home. Or, it's enough space to store CAD files, images and databases at the office.
