First 12TB network storage server from Seagate

Seagate has announced the BlackArmor NAS, a four-bay network storage server filled with 3TB drives for up to 12TB of storage

Has your small business outgrown its current network storage? Do you want space for all of your TV shows, games, and HD videos? Seagate might have the solution for you with its BlackArmor network-attached storage (NAS) system, with four bays that can take 3 terabyte drives for a grand total of 12 terabytes of sweet, sweet storage.

Seagate claims that these drives will deliver maximum uptime as well as the software management tools to help businesses with about 50 employees store and share data. The BlackArmor servers purport to have "powerful hardware-based encryption" to keep your data safe, as well as support for Microsoft's Active Directory for controlling which users and groups have access to your server.

Configured with RAID to protect your data, BlackArmor also has the TimeMachine-like SafetyDrill+ software for providing backups and restore points for your PCs. There are even USB ports so you can add more storage, a printer, or a UPS (uninterruptable power supply). However, the 12TB BlackArmor NAS 440 will cost you about $1,900, and the BlackArmor NAS 220 6TB version ships for $650.

What would you do with 12TB of space? Fill it up with lolcats? Back up all of Wikipedia?

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
