Loads of Storage in One Small Box

- June 23, 2010 - 0 Comments

Data storage is critical to the day-to-day operations of any business, big or small. And these days, file sizes seem to be getting bigger and bigger (video files, anyone?). Enterprise-level businesses can easily deploy a server, but what about small businesses?

Enter Cisco’s NSS 300 Series Smart Storage family of products. The 2-, 4-, and 6-bay network-attached storage (NAS) devices offer up to 12 TB of hard drives pre-installed, and provide top performance for a competitive price. They also feature backup and file sharing, and include a built-in web server and WordPress blog publishing software.

Leigh Martin, Solutions Marketing Manager for Smart Storage, walks through the key features of the new Smart Storage devices in this video.

What are the other benefits of these devices? Here’s what partners need to know…

The devices’ built-in and add-on applications (such as the Web-server and blogging software) provide partners with additional service revenue opportunities and help deliver additional value to your customers. The Cisco Small Business Pro Service is also available as an additional service revenue opportunity.

The Smart Storage products also include integrated tools, such as syslog capabilities and an integrated RADIUS server: These simplify user authentication and management of the entire customer network, saving partners time.

Interested in getting your hands on these for your customers? These time-saving, feature-rich NAS devices are available now. For more information, visit the Smart Storage page.
