A private cloud storage that can be secured with a second backup
This Seagate business storage enclosure (manufacturer’s code: STBP200) is a great choice if you want to use your own hard drives to create a private cloud storage solution without the monthly fees. The four bay design allows you to add up to four 4TB hard drives, for a combined potential storage space of 16TB. Any files stored in this NAS drive can be quickly transferred using a universal storage module (USM) compatible portable drive or a USB drive. This provides you with the relief that your data will be secured.

What are some of the backups I can do?
You can automatically make incremental and full backups of any computers connected to the same network as the NAS. Windows computers can use the Seagate NAS backup for backups. On the other hand Mac computers can use their Time Machine software for backups. You could also setup a range of RAID configurations (RAID 1, 5 and 10), which will simultaneously create replica files on multiple drives.

Individual drives are hot-swappable. This gives you the chance to replace or upgrade a drive without having to turn off the NAS and this applies to any USM portable drives that are used. A built-in USM slot at the front of the NAS drive allows you to transfer files to and from a USM compatible portable drive, and then you can remove the USM drive without having to worry about damage. Using a USM or a USB drive lets you create backups of any files stored on this Seagate Business Storage NAS drive, which can be initiated at a touch of a button. In the event of a disk failure you could lose important files, which will be saved and easily recoverable by taking these extra steps.

Is there an app available?
An easy to use web interface lets you securely share files with co-workers and clients. You can also enable Global Access, granting access to the NAS drive from anywhere in the world if you already have access to it. The Seagate Global Access app is available for iOS and Android devices, so you can download and upload files from anywhere.

Can I play files stored on here on other devices?
This Seagate Business Storage NAS drive allows you to stream your movies, pictures and music to PC and Mac computers, at home or in the office. It can also stream to DLNA certified devices that are connected to the same network as the NAS drive, so you can enjoy your media collection on a smart TV, game console and more.

What other features are there?
To avoid needing to go into the web interface to view the settings of the NAS, an LCD screen has being installed at the front of the NAS drive. Individual user accounts can be created, assigned folders with space limitations and be restricted access to other folders, which makes this great for small business. When managing files remotely, your NAS drive protects data-in-flight using SSL/TLS protocols, to ensure that your information will be kept away from prying eyes.

What is the largest capacity HDD that the Seagate 4 Bay NAS will work with (now or in future)? And how are they attached within the box? I also see a few sockets on the back that look like 2 nework ports and a USB. What max speeds? [I'm asking because I can't see much tech info]
Asked by: Anonymous
The maximum size per bay is 4TB, you can populate the unit with whatever speed drives you wish but be aware that 7200 & 10,000 rpm drives will generate much more heat than standard 5400/5900 rpm drives. The ports on the back are network ports as this is a network drive, the USB 3 port is for attaching an external hard drive for the purpose of backing up data only, this unit cannot be connected directly to a computer
