There cannot be many customers that are not struggling to cope with their growing data, and looking for a way of getting more capacity without causing major disruption.
Various options range from the sort of desktop disc backup product Plasmon had on offer last week to a full-blown SAN that will cause some disruption.
Sitting in the middle is network attached storage (NAS), which is simply plug and play and can offer quick relief to mounting storage problems.
The Zyxel NSA-2400 is aimed at business customers looking for up to 3TB of storage in a box that connects to the network. The Zyxel product offers a great deal of flexibility because it houses four hard drives that can of course be upgraded to increase the capacity.
The size of the unit is also a positive, as it is similar in stature and desktop space to a midi-tower.
Add to that the name on the tin — a well-known brand in the networking world — and it is a solid proposition for the channel to take to market.
