Seagate’s small business-oriented BlackArmor NAS products are focused on providing lots of features without too much trouble or too much cost (relative, mind you, to the price enterprise-oriented solutions charge). Lots of space can be added in to that list, as well.
The BlackArmor 440 replaces the pre-existing BlackArmor 420. A BlackArmor with four of those 3TB drives will run just shy of $1,900. With that, users can expect remote access, system backups, software management and support Microsoft Active Directory 2000 – 2011. A slightly more affordable BlackArmor 220 provides the same features in an even smaller footprint; the 2-bay 220 packs in 6TB for $649.99.
Stay tuned for DesktopReview’s upcoming review of the new BlackArmor 220.
