Very Good...

by A customer on 1/5/2011

Good: Easy to use and excellent GUI. Able to do backups to external Drive. RAID 5 super easy to configure. Bad: A little slower that current fileserver on initial access. A little pricey. Overall very pleased. Can handle interaction with AD without any difficulty. Was up and running within 1 hour.

Product Overview

Reliable, affordable data storage is critical for today’s small business; Cisco understands that data loss is not an option for your company. With four hot-swappable internal hard drives, the Cisco® NSS 324 4-Bay 4TB Smart Storage combines affordability and performance in a single solution to meet your business’s demanding data protection requirements.

Simple, Mobile, Essence of Easy Living Fast, efficient backup
Designed specifically for small businesses, the Cisco NSS 324 Smart Storage centralizes storage management, enabling you to address all your storage needs in one place. And the network-attached storage (NAS) device includes advanced features, proving that big things still come in small packages. For example, the Cisco NSS 324 includes business-class features such as on-disk data encryption for enhanced protection in the event your hard drives are stolen.

Comprehensive, easy-to-use support
With an intuitive, browser-based interface, the device is easy to set up and configure. And with the optional Cisco Small Business Pro Service, a comprehensive 3-year service and support package, you know your storage investment is protected.

Slim and Portable - Record DVDs On-the-Go Built-in and add-on applications
Cisco NSS 324 includes built-in and add-on applications and the ability to add new applications, allowing you to extend the NAS device’s value beyond storage and get more value for your investment. Built-in applications include a user-configurable web server with an integrated WordPress publishing platform as well as built-in syslog and RADIUS servers that help simplify user authentication and network management.

Flexible, high-availability design
Cisco Smart Storage supports multiple operating environments to enable file sharing across Windows, Macintosh, and Linux platforms. The NAS device offers multiple backup modes, including PC/Mac to Smart Storage, server to Smart Storage, or Smart Storage to Smart Storage. You can also use Cisco Smart Storage as an iSCSI target for virtualized and clustered environments.

The Cisco NSS 324 4TB features RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) 0, 1, 5, and 6 configurations, which help safeguard your data. And the hot-swap design lets you replace failed drives without shutting down the Smart Storage device. Cisco Smart Storage is also energy efficient, allowing you to schedule power on and off according to working hours, and conserve power with an Energy Star V-rated power adapter and hard disks that spin down when inactive.
