    Seagate Central: One of the easiest network-attached storage devices to set up

    Posted December 11, 2013 - 1:53 pm

    If you shudder when hearing the words "network-attached storage" you can at least take solace knowing that you aren't alone. NAS devices seem intimidating and unfriendly, but Seagate is trying to change that.

    QNAP TS-469 Pro review: A fast NAS box well suited to both business and pleasure

    Posted August 12, 2013 - 2:43 pm

    If you're a NAS aficionado, it will be no revelation that the QNAP TS-469 Pro is both fast and extremely capable. What might surprise you is that you can attach this SMB-class network-attached storage box via its HDMI output to an HDTV or other high-def display to play movies and music, or to browse the Web. Of more interest to IT types is its on-board display, which allows you to administer the box locally without need of a monitor.

    Iomega px2-300d network-attached storage device

    Posted January 31, 2013 - 11:39 am

    The Iomega px2-300d is a two-bay NAS box that delivers very good performance, excellent backup and surveillance features, and a helpful LCD that reports on the unit's status (IP address, current time, storage remaining, and so on). Its EMC LifeLine operating system is also one of the more feature-rich ones in the industry. But you should buy this box bare--Iomega populates it with enterprise-class hard drives that jack up the price.

    LaCie 2Big NAS offers 6TB of network storage

    Posted July 23, 2012 - 2:10 pm

    If you think that LaCie’s latest network attached storage product, the 2Big NAS, looks like something you’ve seen before, you’re right. But beneath the familiar appearance (the basic design of the 2Big has been around since 2007), there are a number of differences under the hood.

    Buffalo shattered the $1,000 barrier for a terabyte of shared storage back in 2005. With storage prices continuing to drop, that same $1,000 today can buy a four or even five terabyte network attached storage (NAS) device with RAID 5 disk redundancy, plus additional features, like backup storage licenses and indexing capabilities.

    NASs for the masses

    Posted September 27, 2010 - 10:49 am

    Either because server disks are full or because virtualization is a natural growth path, organizations large and small are moving toward shared storage. For large enterprises, high-capacity storage-area networks make sense, but what about small or mid-sized enterprises new to shared storage?
