Seagate Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS review: 8 disks in 1U rack

Seagate's professional storage solution

Firmware

The firmware of the Seagate Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS (R8) has a very clean look, but those familiar with LaCie will notice the kinship. It's completely different than firmware from the likes of Synology or QNAP. There's no overabundance of apps and so on, just a very solid basis. Don't go looking for various business apps here, this is a pure storage machine, but with a couple interesting extras.

Very straight-forward NAS OS firmware.

The opening screen has an overview of the status and most important items. On the left is a list of the features, users, groups and share. A surprising feature for a business product is the ability to download bittorrents, and there are also options for http and ftp downloading. The download features have to be enabled before you can access them. An rsync back-up feature is also available.
