Review: Cisco Smart Storage is Network Attached Storage Made Easy

We recently announced our next generation of network attached storage products for small business, Cisco NSS 300 Series Smart Storage.  CRN got their hands on one and has a great review of the product.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Setup is absolutely idiot-proof, and that’s saying a lot about a box that not only serves files to Linux, Mac and Windows clients, but also does performs FTP, HTTP, NFS, iTunes, Twonky media, WordPress and MySQL services by simply checking a box.”

We know how important ease of use is when it comes to technology, and we made that a priority with this product--glad to see it pay off!
