You’re out on a relaxing evening at a public place. Maybe you’re having dinner with your family, or maybe you’re having drinks with some coworkers after a long day.

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.

“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!
