How much data do you have and how much storage space do you need? Are you a data hoarder? In addition and more importantly, are you protected against data loss in case of hardware failure? Network storage is no longer just about massive disk pools sitting on the network waiting to gobble up the vast amounts of 1’s & 0’s that users are feeding them. It is about simplistic management, good performance, and reliability. Seagate recently launched their line of their NAS series labeled NAS Pro. The Pro line is aimed at the higher end SOHO and small business markets. The Pro line also boasts good performance and reliability with 2, 4, & 6-bay NAS units available. And with their ever evolving NAS OS, users can house up to 30 TB of data in the 6-bay Seagate NAS Pro DP-6. All of the Seagate’s NAS can be ordered either with or without drives. The Seagate NAS Pro DP-6 is not meant to sit next to your TV and be a multifunction multimedia device, it is simply and for the most part, a pure network attached storage device.

|Seagate NAS Pro 6bay 24 TB|
The Seagate NAS Pro DP-6 is designed for larger home offices and small to medium businesses, so you are not going to see flashy and fancy packaging. A very simple design with the specifications are printed on the outside of the box.
The Seagate NAS Pro DP-6 is encased in a rigid plastic frame that should keep it safe from bumps during shipping. Our unit came with six 4TB hard drives pre-installed. Seagate’s NAS Pro line can be ordered with no drives. The NAS can also be ordered with drives up to 5 TB in size.
