CyberPower PR1500ELCDRTXL2U Professional Rackmount Series UPS Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 9:59A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can`t really speak for all of you out there since i haven`t really spent that much time in other countries to have a valid opinion but where i live electricity is not very stable and so the first thing i always say whenever people ask me about what PSU (power supply unit) they should choose is to get a UPS first (uninterruptible power supply) to ensure that nothing ends up getting fried in their systems (especially if we are talking about expensive configurations). Granted many power supply units feature electrical protections that can successfully shield your systems from such unpleasant events but personally i think it`s far better to be safe than sorry so as we speak i have all my test rigs plugged into 4 UPS units (two 1000VA and two 1500VA). However much like everything else UPS devices also differ according to build quality and different levels of protection offered so in the market we one can find consumer oriented ones aimed for house use, advanced ones for the more demanding office use and finally professional ones designed mostly to withstand the demands of enterprise environments where you simply can`t afford not having the best there is. CyberPower is amongst the leading UPS manufacturers and today we will be taking a look at their latest professional Rackmount series UPS unit the 1500VA/1125W PR1500ELCDRTXL2U."

EonNAS 850X NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 9:33A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All digital storage technologies are susceptible to data rot. Just ask the multimedia giant Pixar, who saw dozens of critical files disappear before their eyes, during production of the movie Toy Story. Modern hard drives are remarkably reliable devices, but most have an average uncorrectable read error rate of 10^14. That means one read failure for every 12TB of data. The drive doesn`t crash; it just gives you corrupted data every now and then. The only way around this is to continuously test the data, and scrub the errors as they occur. The storage industry deployed this technology in large data centers, and now Infortrend is making it available to consumers, with their new EonNAS series. The Sun-based OS in the EonNAS Pro 850x also has some other tricks up its sleeve, like data deduplication. Read on to find out more..."

Synology DiskStation DS213+ NAS Server Review
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As things are right now consumers are divided into two separate categories, the ones who support that building your own server from old or new computer parts is the way to go if you want power and the ones who`d rather purchase an standalone NAS server and be done without having to go the extra mile. Personally i think that each solution has both pros and cons with NAS servers getting slightly ahead not only because they are ready to use right from the box with all the applications anyone could wish for pre-installed but also due to their small size and very low power consumption. Of course for people who also want to use the server for games it goes without saying that a normal PC/HTPC is suited for the task. Now for the past 12 months we`ve covered quite a few NAS server solutions by both QNAP and Thecus but today we will be covering an NAS server from Synology a name we haven`t seen in a while and since we have managed to secure a brand new DiskStation DS213+ for our giveaway it only makes sense for us to show all of you what will end up in the hands of our lucky winner."

Thecus N7510 7-Bay Affordable Tower NAS Review
     Thu, Mar 28 2013 | 9:16A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecus strikes gold with the new N7510, a high performance NAS that costs less than $100 per drive bay, and it has more features than you`ll ever use. This is the model we`ve waited a long time for."

QNAP TS-469L High-performance 4-bay NAS Server for Home & SOHO Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:16A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-469L is another powerful NAS from QNAP aimed at home and small business users, equipped with a HDMI interface that can be connected to our Full-HD TV. Thanks to its HD Station function and its modules, we can transform the server into a fully-featured media center for browsing the web, playing media content with XBMC or even for navigating through the Turbo NAS OS interface, without the need of using a PC. As extra bundle, we can acquire separately the useful QNAP Media Center remote or extra RAM for a total of 3GB."

Synology DiskStation DS213 Review
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not everyone has the budget, or need, for a 4-bay NAS and so Synology offer models such as the DS213 with two bays. Today we will be reviewing that model while also taking a look at their latest software, DiskStation Manager v4.2 (March 2013 release)."

Building a Home Server - The Complete Guide
     Mon, Mar 04 2013 | 9:19A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years, The SSD Review has enjoyed a fairly smooth ride with little to complain about. It wasn`t until our readership explosion that we realized how important backups were. There is nothing worse than a site crash, other than a site crash which also contains a Forum of course. The sudden loss of days, weeks, months and even years` worth of data cannot arguably be equal to that of valuable Forum members who hate seeing their threads gone. It happened. Even worse was the fact that our hosting company was receiving premium monthly payments for daily backups, the last of which they had completed some two months prior. It was only for the odd feeling that we had prior to leaving on Christmas vacation that we physically downloaded backups, minimizing our information loss to two weeks. Although website material resulted only in the loss of our Acer S7 Ultrabook Review, the loss of forum posts could never be equaled."

Qnap TurboNAS TS-870U-RP NAS Review
     Sat, Feb 09 2013 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today’s modern businesses face the challenge of finding a cost effective and robust storage solution that has the ability to scale with the growth of their organization. From massive amounts of shared documents to old archived files deploying an appropriate storage solution is business critical. The ability to securely store, share, and back up digital assets has become one of the most important tasks for an SMB IT administrator, choosing the right option will significantly enhance business productivity and crucially offer a reliable disaster recovery solution in an age when downtime of any nature impacts profitability.

Asustor AS-604T-C455 Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Feb 03 2013 | 11:50A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the AS-604, Asustor presents a NAS which aims at demanding home users or small businesses. By using an Intel Atom Dual Core processor, running at 2.13 GHz, the AS-604 promises to be very fast and the use of a Linux kernel grants enormous flexibility regarding the configuration options. Furthermore Asustor implemented their own App store, which lets you install additional apps with a simple click."

Synology DiskStation DS713+ and DX513
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall we are impressed with the build quality, design, performance and features of the Synology DS713+. Meanwhile the DX513 expansion unit makes it possible to increase storage without sacrificing performance, though it’s probably not the most cost effective way to get 7-bay support. Still, this is a flexible solution for growing businesses or professionals that cannot afford to cough up $800+ right off the bat for the larger devices.

Synology DiskStation DS213 NAS Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Jan 27 2013 | 5:12A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year we at TestFreaks have reviewed numerous NAS units. During this time Synology has provided us with several different models ranging from those aimed at the home user to others targeting large-scale business. Today we will be looking at one of their newer units the Synology DiskStation DS213.

However it does include numerous other features that cater to home and business users as well. "

Infortrend EonNAS Pro 200 2-Bay NAS Review
     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 11:24A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a long time since we looked at a dual bay NAS product. Most have disappointed us, and others never worked as advertised. Infortrend did something a little different with the EonNAS Pro 200 - they used a real processor and a liberal amount of DRAM. The result is pretty good, but quality doesn`t come cheap."

EonNAS 1100 NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Jan 15 2013 | 11:56P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Data Rot! Every time a compact disk gives up the ghost and you some files, you`ve experienced it. All digital storage technologies are susceptible to data rot, AKA bit rot. Benchmark Reviews recently highlighted reliability issues that SSD users are experiencing; their flash memory failures have been an eye-opening experience for consumers. We all know how a hard drive crashes, but we`re not so clear on how electrons disappear. Large data centers have been acutely aware of this problem, and the industry devised ways of eliminating it. Now, Infortrend is making that technology available to consumers, with their new EonNAS series. The key to data integrity is in the ZFS file system, that`s part of the Sun-based OS installed in the EonNAS 1100. Plus, it performs data deduplication on the fly! Read on to find out more..."
