What You Get
- Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay NAS

- AC power cord
- DVD with Discovery Software for Mac and Windows + Back-up Software** and System Recovery Boot for Windows
The Business Storage 2-bay NAS includes government-grade hardware encryption technology that helps protect data stored on the NAS. When you access files remotely, the 2-bay NAS also helps protect your data-in-flight with SSL/TLS, the same technology that secures your information when banking online.
The 2-bay NAS features a Universal Storage Module (USM) slot that makes it incredibly simple and cost-effective to create off-site back-ups of your data. Start by docking a Seagate Back-up Plus portable drive in the USM slot. With a touch of a button, you can transfer large files at speeds up to 3× faster than USB 2.0. Undock your portable drive and data, and you're ready to take your files with you or to a secure, off-site location
The USM slot is also convenient for photographers, videographers and other professionals who routinely bring back large files from the field. Use a Back-up Plus portable drive throughout the day and when you're back at the office, slide the portable drive into the USM slot and -- with a touch of a button -- all of your work is transferred to a designated folder on the 2-bay NAS.
Centralise Your Storage and Back-ups
Whether you work alone or in an organisation, 2–Bay NAS makes it easy to protect all your business files on a single device-even if you’re not an IT pro.
- Automatically make incremental and full-system back-ups of network–connected PCs

Always-on Data Security
The 2-Bay NAS delivers US government-grade hardware encryption technology that helps protect your all-important data where it lives: on the hard drive.
When you access files remotely, the 2-bay NAS also helps protect your data-in-flight with SSL/TLS, the same technology that secures your information when banking online.
Private Cloud Anywhere Access
You can use Internet-connected PC and Mac computers to download and upload files remotely, and that’s just the beginning. The 2-Bay NAS is your private, customisable cloud storage solution, with no monthly fees.
- Download and upload files with free apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices
- Easy-to-use web interface for securely sharing files with partners, customers and friends
RAID-enabled for Additional Protection
The 2-Bay NAS can be easily configured in RAID 1 to automatically mirror your files on both drives. If one drive fails, your business-critical data remains intact and accessible.
Individual drives are also hot-swappable, allowing you to replace or upgrade a drive without turning off the device.
Grab Your Files and Go
A built-in Universal Storage Module (USM) slot lets you transfer files to and from USM-compatible portable drives at speeds up to 3× faster than USB 3.0 -- all at the touch of a button.
Ground-breaking USM technology helps create cost-effective off-site back-ups and is ideal for quickly backing up large files brought back from the field.
State-of-the-Art Media Streaming
At home or in the office, the 2-Bay NAS can stream your films, photos and music to PC and Mac computers as well as DLNA-certified devices, meaning you can easily enjoy your media library on Blu-ray players, game consoles, Internet TVs and more.
*For easy scalability, the 2-Bay 0TB comes without pre-installed drives. 2 drives are required for the RAID configuration.
**Includes 5 licenses. Additional licenses are available for purchase.

Top customer reviews
Having owned a Seagate Blackarmor NAS for a while, and having bent it to my will (made it work in spite of its faults) I decided to buy one of these. I had not used the automatic backup software on the Blackarmor because it repeatedly failed to restore. Scheduled dos batch backups were enough for us.
I now feel very stupid.
This unit is worse.
The Seagate Business Storage NAS does not allow secure passwords (only alphanumeric). If you delete a user then you lose all of your public share data and the users share remains. This I have discovered on day one, and it is a very small part of what just doesn't work.
I do not understand how such a product can make it to the shops. A backup device in Raid 1 is supposed to keep your data reasonably safe. This one deleted all of my backups in the first 24 hours. The Chinese bit (the hardware) seems to work, but the software is atrocious.
Having now visited Seagate's own forum and seen how much worse it is than I could possibly imagine I feel as though I have been fleeced in the literal sense of the word.
If you are thinking of buying one of these then please visit that forum..... please.
If you have recently purchased one then I would advise that you should refuse the delivery. That way you will save the cost of the return postage.
All in all, I believe this to be a very good and cost effective NAS solution and, from the evidence so far, I would not hesitate to buy another one of these should I ever need it.
Further update as at 24/10/2015 - Still using this with NovaBackup software and all (touch wood) is still working perfectly OK so, as far as I am concerned, my previous comments still stand and the device itself is functioning in a Windows 10 network environment perfectly well - Jim
