HP swept the Readers' Choice awards in the Storage Products category this year. The HP StorageWorks NAS 4000s polled 25 percent of the vote to convincingly capture the Best Network Attached Storage award. Featuring remote management capabilities and quick, simple setup that requires little technical knowledge, the NAS 4000s delivers Network Attached Storage (NAS) with multiprotocol file support and storage management to enterprise and workgroup environments.

Windows Storage Server 2003 provides the NAS 4000s with increased data protection, performance enhancements, and print services to let customers take control of their growing storage needs. Windows Storage Server also furnishes management functionality, which, in combination with the ease of installation, reduces the overall total cost of ownership (TCO). Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) lets you create high-consistency, point-in-time copies of single or multiple volumes. Ideal for customers who require simple, rapidly deployable, flexible storage or who need remote manageability and have limited IT resources, the NAS 4000s also comes with HP Global Services to provide cost-effective support for continuous availability.
