Eight 19-inch 4-bay rack NAS review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 7:18P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS devices are slowly but surely evolving into a new type of device. Whereas they previously were true storage solutions, nowadays they are becoming more functional, app-driven products, much like telephones and tablets. This could be especially interesting in a (smaller) business environment, as you can add a machine which can handle a specific set of tasks for you in an instant. For example, some devices allow you to create your own Dropbox-like environment, to host a Wordpress-site, or even to run a complete CRM system. The options and capabilities are so extensive that it would be almost impossible to describe everything. On the other hand, while having a complete, well balanced tool box is a useful thing to have, you may not necessarily use everything contained in the box on a daily basis. You should look at these devices in a similar way. You might need all of this functionality, but on the other hand, they are and will always be clever storage boxes which can also be an excellent addition in that regard without all of those extra frills.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-653 Pro NAS Server Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I don't think that there's a single person who can deny that network attached storage devices are getting more popular by the day and the reason i say this is not the increased sales manufacturers are seeing nor the number of brand new models they roll out every once a while no. I'm saying this based on the increasing number of people asking us (either live or via email and through social media) for such reviews. Well i can't really say this comes as a surprise to us, i mean what's not to like about NAS servers? They are small, pack quite a punch, use less electricity than a halogen light bulb, produce low noise levels, offer a complete array of applications right out of the box and can even give you enough space for up to 10 drives (SMB models) which as we speak translates to roughly 80-100TB of storage capacity (thanks to the new 8-10TB drives). Today we'll be checking out one of the best models currently available in the marker for SMB (and home) use, the latest 6 bay TurboNAS TS-653 Pro-8G NAS server by QNAP.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-470 Pro NAS Server Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 3:18A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes i feel that things are moving so fast in the electronics and PC hardware industry that i simply can't afford to look the other way not even for a minute. Take for example NAS devices/servers. It hasn't been more than a month since i last checked all the available models by the 4 leading manufacturers (QNAP, Thecus, ASUSTOR and Synology) and right now there are at least 10 more available ones in their product lines (some already available in retail and some just announced). So that alone means that things must be going even better for all those manufacturers than the last time i checked several sales charts almost half a year ago and with so many people using NAS servers at home for various things such as for file sharing, downloads, video recording and media playback that doesn't really come as a surprise. Today with us we have one of the latest high-end NAS servers to hit the market by QNAP the TurboNAS TS-470 Pro.

Western Digital My Passport Wireless
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 2:18P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I'm going to talk to you about something you might not have thought you needed, but once you realize what this new device can do, you might just want one. Imagine a Western Digital My Cloud, but only smaller, battery powered, and wireless. You could fill it with a bunch of movies, music, and other media for something like an upcoming family road trip. If said device could create its own wireless hotspot, the kids could connect to it via their tablets or other portable devices and watch their movie of choice during the drive. Once you are at your destination and snapping a bunch of photos, it would also be handy if this imaginary device could also mount SD cards for sharing recently taken photos with others on your trip. A bonus might be the ability to store a back-up of those SD cards as they become full, or maybe even empty them for folks without a lot of SD capacity available. As a final bonus, make all of this work in such a way that you could pull off an entire trip with *only* mobile devices and tablets - *without* a PC or a Mac. Think all of that can happen? It can now!

Synology DiskStation DS415+

Synology recently introduced the DS415+. This four-bay NAS mostly targets SMB users and is the first to use an Intel Rangeley quad-core CPU, which allows for very high performance in every possible usage scenario.

Synology Diskstation DS115J 1-Bay NAS Review
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we’re talking network attached storage in our own homes, it isn’t everyone that needs a large server with 4, 6 or 8 bays. Sometimes one bay is enough, if the features and functions still match. We’re also seeing a hard drive size that keeps growing with 6 TB consumer drives and 8 TB enterprise drives already available and the 10 TB drives aren’t far in the future. This might be a smart route to take for people who get into the NAS area now and need both a new device and drives for it, but also for those who just want to cut down on the running costs. Today I’m taking a look at a device for just this situation, the brand new Synology DS115J Disk Station. A compact, lightweight and energy-efficient NAS that is perfect for the budget-conscious home users looking for a simple, yet feature-rich NAS server. You can easily back up documents, monitor live surveillance feeds, build a personal cloud to share files with friends and family or just use it as a media location.

Synology DiskStation DS215j
     Thu, Dec 04 2014 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Synology DS215j is as powerful as a sub $250 NAS device gets right now. With the added bonus of being able to use the feature rich DSM 5.1 software, the DS215j offers even more value. Consumers can also rest assured that Synology will continue to support the DS215j with updated DSM versions for the foreseeable future. Having arrived just in time for Christmas, we think Santa will likely be delivering more than a few DS215j’s.

Lots of new QNAP offerings lately utilize Intel`s Bay Trail CPU, an ideal choice for a NAS. In this review, we will take a look at the HS-251. A mixture of a NAS and HTPC, it comes with the best of both worlds, passive operation, and great looks."

Posted by: STAFF
In this review we will be looking at the Apotop Wi-Copy (DW21) which is touted as being a personal cloud storage device and wireless router, perhaps a bit like the Kingston Mobilelite Wireless series we have covered. For those who are not familiar with them, Apotop is a brand of Carry Technology Company Limited that was founded with the mission to develop innovative storage and portable wireless products to enhance productivity of mobile devices."

Thecus N2310 two-bay NAS Review
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecus N2310 is an entry level NAS built with Advanced Micro Circuits Corporation SOC clocked at 800MHz with 512MB DDR3 RAM. Apart from the basic specifications, can take up to 2x drives with 3.5? and 2.5? form factor, with a total support of up to 8TB. How it performs, is something we’ll know as we progress with the review. For those who don’t know, Thecus is a Taiwan-based company that started in 2004. Since day 1, the company manufactures network-centric devices: storage, NAS and servers. They don’t make for a medium or large size businesses which needs such solutions, but also for the average user and smaller size business. Thecus says that its core values are Quality, innovation, integration, and reliability. Lets see how this two-bay diskless NAS devices perform.

QNAP SilentNAS HS-251 2-Bay NAS Review
     Sat, Oct 18 2014 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is not the typical every-day NAS we are testing today, it is a somewhat special device. When we usually think of NAS devices, it goes in the direction of tower and rack-systems; and that is not the thing you would like next to your well designed home-theatre system. Another thing that prevents most people from having their NAS in that particular location is the noise generated by fans to keep the device cooled; QNAP have tackled both these problems in the HS-251 silent and fanless NAS. QNAP is one of the leading brands within NAS and storage, along with Synology and Thecus. Asustor have also grown into a bigger competitor in this market, and it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. QNAP is no stranger to this scenario and with the many years of experience they have in the bag, they packed this tiny 2-bay device with all sorts of useful features; this is far from the every-day NAS device. This isn’t just a stylish and silent NAS either, it is also a HTPC at the same time. You can connect it directly to your TV or monitor via the built-in HDMI port to browse the web, stream media or play what you already have stored on the same device. There are three ways to control the HTPC part of this device, you can either attach a mouse and keyboard or use your mobile-phone or tablet with QNAP’s official control App. The third option is an extra remote control that can be bought separate.
