How to Upgrade 37,376 AMD Processors...
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 2:53P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The Jaguar has a system memory of 362 terabytes, which is almost three times that of the second largest system. It can read and write files at 284 gigabytes per second and uses a 10-petabyte shared file system. Most of those components remain unchanged from the earlier versions of Jaguar. “That’s the beauty of Cray’s architecture,” says Fruehe. “Nothing else needs to be replaced.” Upgrading the 37,376 processors inside the Jaguar took just about a week, explains Fruehe. Eight chips are housed on a board along with heat sinks. Once the heat sinks are removed, the processors are unclipped and the upgraded chips are fit in. “It takes about five minutes to upgrade each board,” says Fruehe of the 4670 boards that the system has.


LSI MegaRAID SAS/SATA 9265-8i 6Gb/s PCIe RAID Card Review
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following our last reviews of the Areca 1880 RAID Card and LSI 9260-81 MegaRAID Card, we are going to take an indepth look at LSIs new release, the LSI 9265-8i MegaRAID Card, an eight-port PCI Express SATA+SAS RAID Controller that is configured for 6Gb/s devices. With the speed and power of SSDs reinventing mainstream storage, RAID card manufacturers are challenged to deliver a product that can handle the massive throughput and high random reads of these solid state drives. Manufacturers then raise the bar by combining these SSDs into ultra speedy RAID arrays , the end result of which is shown in the LSI 9265-8i as we have today.

ineo NA316N1 All-in-One NAS Server

Posted by: STAFF
"As I was preparing for a long airplane flight across country, I realized that I should make a backup of the data on my ASUS 1005HA netbook. The 10" netbook had hundreds of digital photos and other important documents that were irreplaceable in my busy digital lifestyle."

HP ProLiant MicroServer
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 12:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The term server tends to conjure up images of large and imposing rack-mount boxes costing thousands of pounds, stuffed full of processors, memory and hard disk drives. However, that’s not always the case, with a growing demand for much smaller and more affordable servers to meet the needs of the small business.”


QNAP TS-219P+ Turbo NAS Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 4:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to talk about QNAP's new generation two-bay Turbo NAS with iSCSI, especially designed for small business and home users who are looking for a large storage center. This solution supports RAID 1, offers hot-swappable hard disk design, features two eSATA and multiple USB ports.

Synology DS411j NAS Review
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've followed Synology closely over the last 18 months and been very pleased with what they have shown us by way of review. It's no surprise that they are a predominant organisation within the storage market due to their expanse of solutions, catering for one side of the requirements of users to the other. Synology have an extensive product range for home users, right to enterprise level.

Synology DS-211J Diskstation Two-Bay NAS Review
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 9:00A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Synology's DS211j is a great addition to an expanding home network. Not only does it provide storage and backup solutions, it also offers print and media server capabilities, website hosting, PC-free downloading, and much more at a price that is easy on the wallet."

HP Proliant MicroServer
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 12:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MicroServer is a unique SFF server in the HP Proliant line that looks more like a small PC or multi-HDD NAS box. Powered not by Atom but a more powerful dual-core, 12W TDP AMD Athlon II, it is the smallest server we've ever seen. We gave our sample the complete SPCR treatment.

Thecus N4200 PRO Review - The 4-Bay, Battery Backup NAS with Many Features
     Fri, Apr 01 2011 | 4:16P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last year we reviewed the Thecus N4200 just days after its release. The N4200 is still to this day the only consumer NAS that offers dual status display screens, but more importantly, the only consumer NAS to include a battery backup system. When Thecus first marketed their N4200 a lot of emphasis was placed on the new dual display feature, but we felt that the battery backup feature was the real standout feature. In an enterprise environment power is regulated to a degree unseen in our homes. Businesses regularly spend a portion of their budget on keeping clean, consistent power flowing to their servers. In our home power fluctuates and in many places across the country you can expect at least one power outage a year. Here in the Midwest where I'm at you can expect several brief outages in winter as ice builds on power lines and trees, and again in the spring when severe storms disrupt the flow. One of the easiest ways to take out a hard drive is to remove power abruptly without a proper shut down sequence."

QNAP TS-419P II NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Mar 12 2011 | 4:01P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The official category for the QNAP TS-419P II Turbo NAS is Network Attached Storage, but in today`s environment, think of it as Connected Storage. By consolidating and providing direct access to your data via cloud services or on your mobile device, it`s more about connectedness than the ability to serve up files over 1000BASE-T in your home or workspace. The TS-419P II is the next logical step up from a two-bay device and allows you to implement RAID 5 or 6; a four-bay device is really the bare minimum for a high availability NAS appliance. It`s equipped with a faster Marvell CPU running at 2.0 GHz, a 25% increase in clock speed from previous models. Benchmark Reviews has tested several NAS units recently, let`s take at look at how this latest unit compares."

QNAP TS-419P+ Turbo NAS Review
     Mon, Feb 07 2011 | 4:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In just over a year we’ve gone from the QNAP TS-419 to the QNAP TS-419P+ with a TS-419P in the middle. The performance of each device has gradually improved. The QNAP TS-419U which I previously reviewed was aimed at the corporate market as it came in a rackmount design. However, the QNAP TS-419P+ is most definitely targeted at the home market. It doesn’t quite pack the same punch as the small business and corporate devices with their Intel ATOM processors, 1GB RAM and 512MB flash memory but it has all the same software features to give it that extra edge over the competition. The icing on top of the cake would be the support offered by QNAP. The forums and Wiki guide gives you more knowledge than you ever need. If you have a problem, there’s an answer.

QNAP TS-419P+ TurboNAS 4-Bay Network Storage Review

Posted by: STAFF
"About six months ago, I started looking into building a Home Theater PC Solution that fit my needs. Seeing I already owned an Xbox 360, and not wanting to build a separate PC, I decided my best route was to look at some type of device that could stream to an Xbox 360 using UPnP. I ran into many roadblocks, some devices did not support a large storage pool, and others were just too expensive. When asked to review the QNAP TS-419P+, I was thrilled to see that the device supported just the type of streaming that I wanted..."

QNAP TS-259 Pro+ NAS Review
     Tue, Jan 25 2011 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past we have reviewed a number of various NAS boxes from QNAP and have always been pleased with their performance and features. Today we take a closer look at their latest top of the line, the QNAP TS-259 Pro+NAS, and see how it holds up to the competition as well as taking a look at some other models. While its outside appearance is very similar to the previous generation of NAS boxes from QNAP, a closer look at the specs reveals that the system’s internals have been completely overhauled. Remember that when looking at the specs, NAS boxes have a customized OS so they are normally extremely low powered and are optimized purely for network and file I/O.

Synology DS211 NAS Review
     Sat, Jan 22 2011 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Synology are a strong force within the NAS market. Apart from just a few other names in the business they have an abundance of NAS products that cater for the home user right through to the corporate enterprise. Last year we took a look at the Diskstation DS410 and DS210j and we were very impressed. This time we are to look at a newly released NAS called the DS211. Which is the next product up from the DS210j. The naming system that Synology adopt is quite intuitive - Diskstation (DS) Number of bays (2) Year of production (11). The variable at the end of each of the product range such as + or j symbolise - Performance (+) Entry Level (j). So our unit today has 2 bays, is 2011 model and is from neither performance or entry level range."

QNAP TurboNAS TS-219P+ NAS Server Review

The TurboNAS TS-219P+ by QNAP is an affordable state of the art, dual bay iSCSI NAS Server focused mainly towards home and SOHO network users who are looking for a fast NAS unit with a mid-level storage capacity.

Synology DS211 Network Application Server
     Sat, Jan 08 2011 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" While the DS210j was a nice simple server, there are people that require more horsepower from a dedicated storage and application server. Synology has just released the DS211 which doubles the speed and memory from the older, SOHO targeted, unit. The DiskStation Manager 3.0 software rounds out the product for a smash hit. "
