Hewlett-Packard (HP) has expanded its entry-level Network Attached Storage (NAS) line with the introduction of new HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s solutions. The new products are geared toward enterprise remote offices and small to midsized businesses. Currently three models are available: a 320GB configuration for $2999; a 640GB configuration for $4999; and a 1TB configuration for $6999.
The new products are less expensive than HP's other low-end systems because they use ATA drives, rather than SCSI drives. "With the StorageWorks NAS 1000s, HP now offers the broadest line of integrated, interoperable NAS solutions that meet the needs of the smallest businesses to large data centers," said Mark Nagaitis, director, product marketing, HP Network Storage Solutions. HP also offers the StorageWorks NAS b3000 solution in the company's Windows Powered NAS (WPNAS)product line. HP recently completed the North American portion of an international storage road show that promoted the use of WPNAS devices.
