Little Linux Server That Also Runs RAID

Steve Rogers, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I already have a Drobo on firewire which I got for firewire speed. This time, I needed a NAS and traded off between QNAP and Synology. I settled on QNAP because of price, the OS/Software experience, and I wanted to give some of the apps a try (particularly Plex). Setup is *fairly* straightforward using QNAP's QTS operating system (that looks like some linux that's been customized).

Great product for the price, does everything and more that I need

  • Summary: I debated between this device and an equivalent Synology device. While both had great reviews, in the end QNAP had everything I needed at a lower price. At the price I paid I got more than what I would have from Synology of equal price. Any extras I would have gotten from Synology at a higher price I wouldn't need or used. My main purpose for buying this was to be a central file storage, process a backup to an external drive, and have access to data while away from home.

  • Summary: I use a pair of WD 3T Green drives - everything works at advertised. Throughput is acceptable across the wire - slower than my old G3 Compaq/HP server but MORE than adequate for home/SOHO use (about 1/2 a gig was my best case on large files with large frames). Hot swap is nice - the drive trays feel cheap/"plasticky", rest of the unit is fine.
  • Pros: Simple setup, quiet, lots of software included - more downloadable via the web
  • Cons: Slow Raid 1 / Mirror sync, cheap drive trays

  • Summary: en remplacement d'un ts212 très performant pour une utilisation personnel. Un effort sur l’emballage est à faire (carton trop grand et peu de papier bulles) RAS sur les délais la livraison en point colis c'est bien passé

  • Excerpt: В целом если его просто настроить для домашней сети, то очень даже ничего.
  • Pros: Габариты, количество сервисов на борту ( FTP/SMB/NFS/SSH/TELNET/Webdav/и т.п. ) Возможна установка различных приложений. даже DLNA несколько видов.
  • Cons: Процессор слабоват, закачка торрентов происходит как будто только последовательно. Медленно обновляет медиатеку ( при выставленных настройках обновлять в режиме реального времени и нажатие синхронизировать сейчас ничем не помогает )

NAS a tous faire

  • Summary: Voilà bientôt 1 ans qu'il fonctionne, ce NAS fait très bien son boulot de NAS (stockage en raid, gestion de droit pour les utilisateur, média center) mais aussi en tant que serveur (Web, git, ftp, mumble) Système basé sur linux donc pour les connaisseurs en allant dans les config système on arrive à plein de chose.
