Product Overview

The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series Network Storage System

The Cisco® Small Business NSS2000 Series Network Storage System provides the robust security and advanced data backup capabilities your business needs, at a price small companies can afford. With support for hundreds of gigabytes of data and up to 15 concurrent users per chassis, the Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series provides the ideal solution for storing, sharing, and archiving your mission-critical business information. And unlike entry-level network-attached storage (NAS) systems, the Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series delivers the advanced backup, encryption, user authentication, and high availability you need to protect your business.

The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series includes two options:
  • The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 2-bay Gigabit chassis, which supports any approved hard disk drive
  • The Cisco Small Business NSS2050 2-bay Gigabit chassis, which includes two 250 gigabyte hard disk drives, for a total capacity of 500 gigabytes

    Both models provide a wealth of features in a desktop-size system designed specifically for small businesses. And both models give you the flexibility to configure the system without any connected drives, to reconfigure it at any time, and to link multiple Cisco NAS devices together, providing a solution that can grow with your business.

    You can use the Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series to:
  • Automatically back up important information from every PC and server in your business
  • Provide centralized storage and sharing of important files
  • Employ Continuous Data Protection (CDP) to automatically back up every version of every file saved by employees, allowing you to easily restore data
  • Store and archive digital video from your video surveillance system

    Robust reliability: Traditional small business NAS systems require each hard drive to run its own operating system software, making them inherently less stable. The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series integrates the Linux OS that controls the storage system into the chassis itself, ensuring that your business remains protected even if an individual hard drive fails.
    Maximum flexibility: The intelligent Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series chassis gives you the flexibility to configure the system without any connected drives, to reconfigure it at any time, and to link multiple Cisco NAS chassis together, providing a solution that can grow with your business.
    Broad compatibility: The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series supports a variety of data storage schemes (Redundant Array of Independent Disks [RAID0, RAID1], "just a bunch of disks" [JBOD]) and file systems, and allows you to link Windows-based users, Mac users, Unix/Linux users, and FTP clients into a single data storage system, providing a complete storage solution for virtually any business environment.
    Advanced storage capabilities: The device's rich network storage features include support for the Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) monitoring system for hard disks, file journaling, and virtualization of RAID storage systems across Cisco NAS products giving you a full suite of tools to create a robust file-sharing and data backup system for your business.
    Strong security: The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series supports a variety of security features to protect your data and help you comply with regulatory standards, including file encryption support, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) file-based disk encryption, virtual LANs (VLANs), and user authentication and access control.
    Reduced costs: By integrating the operating system into the chassis, instead of into individual hard drives, the solution eliminates the need to purchase and maintain third-party OS licenses, upgrades, or accessories for each hard drive in the system.
    Out-of-the-box compatibility with other business applications: The Cisco Small Business NSS2000 Series is designed to fully integrate with other Cisco Small Business Series products in a single, easy-to-manage network environment. For example, the solution provides the ideal data storage foundation for Cisco Small Business IP video surveillance and CDP applications.
