3 TB Drives

Hi folks! Now that 3 TB drives are available, it’s great news for the SMB! Why you ask?

Because with 3 TB sata drives you can greatly increase your capacity in an SMB NAS or SAN device. For example, the latest QNAP devices support 3 TB sata drives. In an 8 drive capacity QNAP, you have 24 TB of raw storage for a really cheap price point!

Sure, you don’t necessarily get the enterprise grade features, but when it comes to very small businesses, this is all they need. Whether you use the storage for backup or virtualization, you’ll have more than enough storage to last you a while. Especially at this price point you can double up and create an offsite replication as well.
