Summary: Rackstation is the only stand alone NAS I have ever owned. With DMS 5 loaded it is a great network device. I use mine as a stand alone backup for all of my computers througn File Station. With 2-1GIG drives running in RAID 1 I think I have a good secure system. I was using Survelance System for my securiry cameras when I had stationary cameras. This unit came with 5 licenses but I understand tne newer units come with only one and additional licenses are $100 each.
Summary: This is an awesome server! I have been installng NAS servers for quite some time, This server is the best so far. I normally would buy all components and build a system, add all software apps and take time to setup and configure. This is by far the easiset to buy, setup and configure. Normally it would be a 48-72 hour turnaround if I had built this and setup for customer.
