QNAP TS-453A QTS-Ubuntu Combo NAS Review
     Thu, Aug 11 2016 | 4:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is a review that I’ve been looking forward to because the QNAP TS-453A is anything but an ordinary NAS. QNAP likes to take one step further and this is clearly such a case. The TS-453A is their response to the coming era of Internet of Things (IoT) where it supports the open-source Linux platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices.

Netgear ReadyNAS 214 Four-Bay Consumer NAS Review
     Tue, Aug 09 2016 | 11:46A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Netgear's ReadyNAS 214 four-bay consumer NAS goes under the microscope as we test its performance and features to see if it's worth buying or not."

Synology DS916+ 4-bay NAS
     Wed, Aug 03 2016 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS916+ is mostly for professional users, or enthusiasts who can afford it. It is powered by a capable quad-core Intel CPU with good performance and low power consumption even when taxed heavily.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-531P-8G NAS Server Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:19P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Can a NAS server using an ARM Cortex A15 processor by a relatively unknown player like Annapurna Labs compete with all the Intel & AMD based models in the market? QNAP certainly seems to think so since they released their latest TS-531P with it and we're here to test their choice for ourselves.

NVIDIA Tesla P100 For PCIe-Based Servers Overview.
     Mon, Jul 04 2016 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink

Synology Diskstation DS416j NAS
     Sat, Jul 02 2016 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”While not as high-end as the DS716+ and the DS1515+ that we previously reviewed, at a price of under $300 dollars for a quad-bay NAS, the DS416j is a bargain. What you do get is a very reliable four-bay NAS that supports up to 8TB drives with a maximum volume size of 16TB. That is a lot of storage space for any user and will have you pumping out data and media like no tomorrow. Originally, at release, there was no Plex support, but a recent check unveiled that support has been added, so you now have options for streaming media to other boxes. As for the speeds, the RAID 10 was the overall best performer as imagined and works well with the four bays during testing with the four Seagate 8TB NAS drives. This gives you the best space and performance ratio that you could want in a NAS. There are some missing features such as the web browser and some of the HA/Fail Over items. There is also no SSD caching, which I feel would have improved speeds on the DS416j overall. All in all though, this is a very good entry level NAS for those wanting to get into the market and have a dedicated low power NAS unit. If you are looking for a no frills backup and storage solution and do not want to pay a lot of money with four bays and a 16TB max volume, the DS416j is a very nice unit. While using a lower-end CPU and 512MB of RAM, it did perform quite well considering, and would be a great solution for first time and budget conscious users.”

Drobo 5N Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 12:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5N is a well priced 5 bay NAS from the US American manufacturer Drobo. On the inside there is a quad core SoC making sure there is enough processing power and apart from that there is a 1 Gigabit Ethernet interface for quick transfers. Drobo is keen on making their NAS as easy to use as possible. One key feature is the possibility to add disk drives of different sizes to an array.

WD My Cloud Expert Series EX2100 8TB NAS Server Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2016 | 9:54A | Servers | PermaLink

Intel RSA to heat up competition in server industry
     Thu, Apr 07 2016 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seeing Intel and Microsoft's new platforms have been unable to boost demand for notebooks, ODMs are shifting their focuses to non-notebook product lines especially servers to maintain their gross margin performances in 2016; however, this along with Intel's Rack Scale Architecture (RSA), is expected to heat up server market competition, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Netgear ReadyNAS RN212 Network Attached Storage
     Wed, Feb 10 2016 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Netgear has released a new line of high-end-yet-consumer-friendly Network Attached Servers (NAS) dubbed the RN210 family. They are available in both two-and-four bay models, and this time around we’ll be examining its two-bay model, the RN212. Keep in mind, however, that almost everything we cover here applies to the four-bay model as well, which goes by the moniker RN214. The big deal with this NAS is that, according to Netgear, it’s the “only ARM-based NAS that delivers full HD 1080p to 480p transcoding,” with the purpose being the ability to stream content from the NAS to your smart phone or tablet without any dropped frames. Another notable is that it uses the BTRFS file system, which is a copy-on-write (CoW) system designed to improve data reliability and scalability...

Synology DiskStation DS1515+ Network Attached Storage Review
     Sat, Jan 30 2016 | 4:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is a NAS? NAS Stands for Network Attached Storage, and it is a device that resides on your network and can have multiple drives in a RAID array. The drives contain folders that can be accessed by all or a few computers on your network depending on the permissions set. Having a NAS on your network offers a few …

Thecus W4000+ Windows Server NAS Review
     Tue, Jan 12 2016 | 9:00A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecus has made an interesting variation on the market with their W4000/W4000+ NASes (a 2-bay and also a 5-bay version is also available) considering that we no longer have a Linux distribution on our server but Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials and the product can be used from scratch like a regular PC. Windows Server 2012 is quite complex for entry-level users and we can clearly say that we would not recommend this product for home use simply because it is not as easy to set up as a Linux-based NAS and also requires a Connector software to be installed on each and every station in order to integrate the client with the server (and implicitly the newly created internal domain).

QNAP TurboNAS TS-451+8G NAS Server Review
     Wed, Jan 06 2016 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With just hours before we say goodbye to 2015 and embrace 2016 i decided to upload yet another review (our last of 2015) mainly because i met some people the other day who knew nothing about network attached storage devices (NAS). I mean not owning one but having a general idea is one thing (happens all the time really) but not knowing that such devices even exist is strange especially since these people have been following technology for at least over a decade now. Anyways these guys are looking for an easy way to share files with their friends and families (both online and local), download large chunks of data over the internet without using their computers and if possible to playback downloaded data directly onto their home theater and portable devices. My answer to them was to simply wait and read this review once up to see what NAS servers are capable off and what better way to deliver on that than for us to test the latest model by QNAP the TurboNAS TS-451+8G.

Synology DS216se 2-Bay Entry-Level and Cloud NAS Review
     Mon, Jan 04 2016 | 12:01P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve reviewed quite a few high-end NAS lately and that isn’t the right match for everyone, maybe because you just have a limited budget or you just don’t need more. Today I’m taking a closer look at the Synology DS216se, a budget friendly 2-bay NAS that allows you to set up your own personal cloud for your files and backups as well as serving as traditional NAS for file storage and media streaming.

Inateck FE2008X USB Type C 5Gbps Storage Enclosure Review
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 12:01P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Inateck's FE2008X USB Type C 5Gbps storage enclosure has a few rattles, but the performance is quite solid for the asking price."
