No more packages for the NSS300 storage units from Cisco since they went End-of-Life/End-of-Sale. Since these units went EOL/EOS Qnap has taken over software releases for these units. They are several Qnap software releases since Cisco 1.5.0 - when upgrading to Qnap software its best to upgrade to 3.5.0 and then so on, Qnap is now released 3.6.x which has alot of awesome packages but not Mozy backup.
Trust me its worth the upgrading - please be mindful of any serious configuration changes can corrupt if interrupted and cause lose of data so make sure all important data is backup. I have seen only a few people say the upgrade didn't complete successfully. Usually they tried to jump past 3.5.0 to later Qnap image and it corrupted partition tables. So if you decide to upgrade make sure you download 3.5.0 image for conversion and your Cisco is on 1.5.0....
Go to Qnap.com and check out all their packages..
Jason, thanks for the updates! I don't know how I missed that EOL/EOS notice but I have to say I'm disappointed that Cisco has dropped storage from their small business portfolio.
In the absence of the NSS3xx series would you still go the QNAP route (with pretty much the same hardware) or would you look at a completely new vendor, like Iomega?
First i would completely buy Cisco NSS3xx while they last. The reason i say this is the hardware warranty that Cisco is providing is3 or 5 years after date of purchase, I think it’s 5. So the warranty is well worth getting a Cisco unit. Now as for software i completely update to the Qnap software (firmware). Honestly this box really can do almost anything. When you update to Qnap software this box will be... Vpn server.. FTP... Media server... Data base... Web server...LDAP Server...Anti-Virus
PBX...Proxy server(Squid)...Xmail…Transmission..and so on. The price points on the comparable models are roughly the same. Now when Cisco is out of Stock then yes I would buy Qnap branded hardware as I haven’t found another NSS that has all these features.
