Should you invest in a Private NAS or Stick with the Cloud? http://www.span.com/feature/Network__Attached__Storage__NAS__Drives~1447 Home users all the way upto small and medium businesses are all thinking about it. Data is their lifeblood. So it makes sense that one of the top priorities for business owners is finding the best way to back up and store their data. But without huge, in-house IT teams to make decisions, the choice is theirs. Fortunately, the simplicity, availability, and versatility of public cloud offerings and private Network Attached Storage (NAS) solutions are making that choice a little easier. The question is, which one is best? The public cloud, defined simply as services delivered via web-based applications and third-party providers, is an attractive option because it’s easy to use, and businesses only pay for what they use. That’s why many business owners think public cloud offerings are perfect for their businesses at first glance. But with a bit deeper look, it quickly becomes apparent that it isn't as clear as it seems. With factors such as year on year cost, expandability and the very diverse means of accessing the data itself, the shortfalls of the cloud can be quickly apparent.

What is NAS and why you need it http://www.span.com/l/vjLB9v Network-attached storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to heterogeneous network clients. A NAS unit is essentially a self-contained computer connected to a network, with the sole purpose of supplying file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. The operating system and other software on the NAS unit provide the functionality of data storage, file systems, and access to files, and the management of these functionalities. The unit is not designed to carry out general-purpose computing tasks, although it may technically be possible to run other software on it. NAS units usually do not have a keyboard or display, and are controlled and configured over the network, often by connecting a browser to their network address. The alternative to NAS storage on a network is to use a computer as a file server. In its most basic form a dedicated file server is no more than a NAS unit with keyboard and display and an operating system which, while optimised for providing storage services, can run other tasks; however, file servers are increasingly used to supply other functionality, such as supplying database services, email services, and so on. A general-purpose operating system is not needed on a NAS device, and often minimal-functionality or stripped-down operating systems are used. For example FreeNAS, which is Free / open source NAS software designed for use on standard computer hardware, is just a version of FreeBSD with all functionality not related to data storage stripped out. NASLite is a highly optimized Linux distribution running from a floppy disk for the sole purpose of a NAS. Likewise, NexentaStor is based upon the core of the NexentaOS, a Free / open source hybrid operating system with an OpenSolaris core and a GNU user environment. NAS systems contain one or more hard disks, often arranged into logical, redundant storage containers or RAID arrays (redundant arrays of inexpensive/independent disks). NAS removes the responsibility of file serving from other servers on the network. NAS uses file-based protocols such as NFS (popular on UNIX systems) or SMB/CIFS (Server Message Block/Common Internet File System) (used with MS Windows systems). NAS units rarely limit clients to a single protocol. NAS provides both storage and filesystem. This is often contrasted with SAN (Storage Area Network), which provides only block-based storage and leaves filesystem concerns on the "client" side. SAN protocols are SCSI, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, ATA over Ethernet (AoE), or HyperSCSI. Despite differences SAN and NAS are not exclusive and may be combined in one solution: SAN-NAS hybrid The boundaries between NAS and SAN systems are starting to overlap, with some products making the obvious next evolution and offering both file level protocols (NAS) and block level protocols (SAN) from the same system. However a SAN device is usually served through NAS as one large flat file, not as a true filesystem. An example of this is Openfiler, a free software product running on Linux.

The configuration we received is an 8TB solution with dual 4TB drives, thus giving users 4TB of usable capacity at RAID 1. Overall there's plenty that we love about WD My Cloud but is it as user friendly as they advertise? Let's find out.

Upgrading my Synology 1815+ taking out a 2TB and putting in a 8TB,, this one : http://amzn.to/1YB7CYJ This is a big harddrive, and 8TB is a lot of storages,, and here it cost me just over $300. I could have gotten a external 8TB drive a bit cheaper,, bur the price difference was just 120 dkr. When I bought my Synology DS 411j back in 2011 I also bought 4 WD Green 2TB drives, after 3,,ish years I needed more storages, so I started to update to 3TB,, I got two, and then I decided t go for 4TB Drives instead. _________________________________________________________________ My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on. I have this house, it is 168 Square Meters / 1808.3ft² and it is full, of half-finished projects.

It all costs, but I'm trying to get the most out of my money, and my time.
A NAS or "network attached storage" device is a way to consolidate your data and keep it all safe! It might not be glamorous, but it's definitely a great idea to have one!
Network-Attached Storage NAS is a computer connected to a network that provides data storage services to other devices on the network, a convenient method of sharing files among multiple computers Visit my website to download and install FreeNAS and VirtualBox http://www.avoiderrors.net/?p=17591
Should you Buy a Synology or a QNAP NAS for your NAS Server? https://www.span.com/search/Desktop_space_NAS_space_raid/10- QNAP Better value for money in terms of Hardware, Synology have a better organized pricing structure across their range – SE – J – STANDARD – PLAY - PLUS COMPATIBILITY Both are fine with Windows and Mac but the QNAP Operating system is geared more in feel and GUI to Windows and Android users, whereas Synology feels distinctly more Mac in terms of access, GUI and usability But a Nod to QNAP and TB2 MEDIA More direct attached options and therefore software like KODI and PLEX via HDMI on a QNAP. Synology has a NETWORK ONLY stance QNAP has remote, AUDIO IN/OUT, Speakers, Keyboard and Mouse access EDITING Both have the ability to edit voer the network (advise using a 10GBe connection) but for the TB enabled editors, the QNAP is preferred. WARRANTY Both QNAP and Synology have an SRS for premium / XS units. Syn charge more but in their premium units have an extra year of warranty in their mid range to PLUS units QNAP has a better system of replacement and upgradable parts to upgrade to evolve the NAS throughout it’s life cycle to entend use RELIABILITY Arguable – one the one hand QNAP units having a slightly shorter warranty, BUT that upgrade and swapability is a good future proofing measure Likewise Synology might have longer warranty on like for like units but this doesn’t mean they are bullet proof (the recent Intel Atom CPU saga unfolding – fair play to Synology extending the warranty on those items though). But they seemingly trade ability for stability at times. Did you enjoy the video? Find it helpful? Want to hear more? Of course you want to...you're only human!

http://froknowsphoto.com/46-terabytes-backup/ I have been personally focusing a lot of energy to ensuring that my growing photo and video archive will be securely backed up into the future. I don't want to risk waiting until there's an issue to find a solution for backing up. That's why I am testing out and implementing as many different solutions as possible. In this case I have 46 Terabytes of hard drives sitting on my desk. For those who understand what raid is you understand that all 46 wont be used as backup but for this video I am speaking overall. I personally bought the 8TB Seagate from B and H for $299 which makes each gig 3.75 cents which is insane. Synology sent me the DS1515+ pre loaded with 5 6TB NAS hard drives which means that box has 30TB of possible storage. Western Digital sent me the 8TB My Book Thunderbolt to test out as well. My goal is to be proactive in my backup approach, what are you doing to secure your data?
