SoftNAS Announces Sale Of SoftNAS Essentials


SoftNAS LLC, the #1 NAS in the Cloud, has announced the official sale of SoftNAS Essentials™, a small office, home office (SOHO) version of its flagship SoftNAS Professional™ software. SoftNAS Essentials is available on a monthly, annual or perpetual basis with an entry price as low as $4.95 per month per terabyte.

Designed for the branch office, department, small office, and home office (SOHO) file server market, SoftNAS Essentials, “strikes a balance between open source options that lack simple administration with consistent support and expensive enterprise-grade NAS hardware appliances,” said Rick Braddy, SoftNAS founder and managing partner.

“Many customers find they don’t need all the enterprise-grade features – like cross-site mirroring, replication, failover, or continuous data protection – available in SoftNAS Professional but they still appreciate SoftNAS’ core features and simple administration interface,” Braddy said.

SoftNAS Essentials also allows the use of existing hardware to quickly create powerful branch office and department storage servers, as well as storage servers for development, QA, A/V and other department teams that have historically been unable to justify purchase of high-quality NAS. Furthermore, SoftNAS Essentials provides a low-cost storage system to manage local backups of hundreds of terabytes, using inexpensive 4 TB disk drives with off-the-shelf servers.

“With SoftNAS Essentials, IT now has an affordable option available to meet rapidly growing storage demands while staying within or below budget,” said Braddy.   

SoftNAS Essentials can easily be upgraded to SoftNAS Professional as businesses grow and need to scale. A price grid and feature comparison between SoftNAS Essentials and SoftNAS Professional can be found at: https://www.softnas.com/wp/products/pricing-and-plans/.
