PLEX vs KODI and XBMC- Which one should you use for your NAS Media Server

PLEX vs KODI and XBMC- Which one should you use for your NAS Media Server

So you want a Digital Media Server but don't know where to start? http://nascompares.com/2016/04/28/choosing-the-right-nas-for-media-plex-versus-kodi-and-xbmc/ ♫ 📷 CREATE PLEX ACCOUNT http://bit.ly/PlxAFF4 ♫ 📷 GET PLEX PASS http://bit.ly/A4PPASS But which is for you? Larger start-up cost. Plex is a proprietary software (that is to say a paid for ‘brand’), however the initial Plex software and PMS setup software are free. All media is held on a single host/server device which will need at least a mid range machine with either an x86 processor or ARM v7 CPU to handle issues like transcoding your media between devices (larger files being sent to smaller devices that require downscaling). As all the ‘work’ is handled by the Plex Media Server (PC/NAS) and the destination device works just as a receiver. + a paid for Premium serviced to utilise extra features that go above and beyond media (many of which are already provided by Synology or QNAP in your NAS once purchased at no additional cost) KODI is an open source and standalone. Much, much less expensive in the short-term. Media is held on multiple network enabled devices and is shared throughout them between each KODI client device (smartphone, laptop, pc, tablet, NAS, etc) No big financial outlay is required at the start for a NAS, however transcoding/re-encoding of files to be accessible to host devices is done by the host device itself. So a 1080p file being viewed in .MKV format that is way, way over the top for a smartphone will be required to transcode the file and have to work hard at it! But is ably supported on ARM devices such as lower end NAS devices and Raspberry Pi The real cost of KODI in the long run is having a series of KODI supported devices that are mid range in power Next let’s talk Accessing your Media Single Server source and data is mostly accessible via a web interface (with the exception of mobile apps which are dressed up versions of the same). Media can be readily and easily accessed remotely via the internet (so outside your home network). Chiefly designed to give you the ability to access and share your media outside of your home network. Client based access on every device giving you access to your devices contents and those accessible on the same home network (same router/network) via installed mobile apps or desktop software. Accessing outside of your home network, though not impossible, is difficult and by no means user-friendly. Chiefly designed to give you access to media across all devices on your home network – not external access. You can set up a web server but has a steep learning curve. Next User Interface and customisation Media is organised in a far more graphical fashion –those familiar with Amazon Instant, Netflix etc will be at home with it. Automatically scanning and updating libraries (new additions, images, details, etc), as well as giving you the ability to create playlists and keep track of your watched-unwatched media. This is especially helpful via the web-interface and largely possible due to that SINGLE server architecture design. No real design customisation is available, and most fully featured add-ons are Paid-for. Though it does let you add numerous online content such as TED talks, Youtube, vimeo, etc Heavy emphasis on the cross axis design… categories left to right and sub-categories up and down. Much more file based. Playlist etc are possible but this is more for someone who wants to see more information on screen about their media. VERY customisable with a community of modders and users making newer and better skins and interfaces. Some of these are geneuinely innovative and give a real sense of individuality. Much larger support and choice of internet TV channel and VoD services. Really spoilt for choice upto and including near live TV services Next Overall Support on client and host As it is proprietary software, they have the support you would come to expect from a company with Paid for add ons… customer service line, technical support as well as paid for developers. More readily available in App form on more devices. From consoles like PS4 and Xbox one all the way through to Roku, Amazon fire etc – however many of these require additional payment (around 5 dollars). For online/remote steaming of your own media when away from home, it is the front runner. Being an open-source software, you do not get the support you would from a corporate cooperated company. They is a huge community of users, support members and forums with guides, tutorials and updates but no real LIVE/instant support Kodi is available on many platforms, though not as many as PLEX, however a few require you to go into the setting and configure the software manually to optimise the software. This lack of uniformity across platform case result in slight performance crippling on lower powered devices as they communicate with devices on the network on different platforms.

Still confused about NAS? NAS explained in 3 minutes

Still confused about NAS? NAS explained in 3 minutes

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.

USB 3.1 Gen 2, USB Type C and Thunderbolt 3 Explained - Why is it such a big step?

USB 3.1 Gen 2, USB Type C and Thunderbolt 3 Explained - Why is it such a big step?

Thunderbolt and USB are changing? Robbie explains How and Why http://www.span.com/search/usb_space_type-c SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) from the USB-IF The SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) Specification adds a 10Gbps speed mode that uses a more efficient data encoding and will deliver more than twice the effective data through-put performance of existing SuperSpeed USB over enhanced, fully backward compatible USB connectors and cables. The specification extends the existing SuperSpeed mechanical, electrical, protocol and hub definition while maintaining compatibility with existing USB 3.0 software stacks and device class protocols as well as with existing 5Gbps hubs and devices and USB 2.0 products. Delivers 10Gbps USB data rate * 2x improvement over current SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps data rate Improved data encoding for more efficient data transfer leading to higher through-put and improved I/O power efficiency Compatible with existing USB 3.0 software stacks and device protocols Works with both existing 5Gbps USB 3.0 hubs and devices, as well as USB 2.0 products SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.1 Gen 1) from the USB-IF As technology innovation marches forward, new kinds of devices, media formats, and large inexpensive storage are converging. They require significantly more bus bandwidth to maintain the interactive experience users have come to expect. In addition, user applications demand a higher performance connection between the PC and these increasingly sophisticated peripherals. SuperSpeed USB addresses this need by adding an even higher transfer rate to match these new usages and devices. USB continues to be the answer to connectivity for PC, Consumer Electronics, and Mobile architectures. It is a fast, bidirectional, low-cost, dynamically attachable interface that is consistent with the requirements of the PC platforms of today and tomorrow. SuperSpeed USB brings significant performance enhancements to the ubiquitous USB standard, while remaining compatible with the billions of USB enabled devices currently deployed in the market. SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, as well as improved power efficiency. SuperSpeed USB has a 5 Gbps signaling rate offering 10x performance increase over Hi-Speed USB. SuperSpeed USB is a Sync-N-Go technology that minimizes user wait-time. SuperSpeed USB will provide Optimized Power Efficiency. No device polling and lower active and idle power requirements. SuperSpeed USB is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

Be it as a Plex Media Server, as a Synchronization station with public cloud storage providers, perhaps a NAS download station, itunes NAS server or as a means to host your website or images for Apple Time machine - Which one should I go for? Should you spend mroe and go for the all encompassing Synology DS716+ NAS? Should you save the pennies and go for the Synology DS216J or Synology DS216se? Perhaps you want features but have to work in a budget and therefore the Synology DS216+ or Synology DS216 is the NAS for you? An maybe...just maybe you want something for a 4K NAS server and want to keep in budget and go for the Synology DS216PLAY... The list is endless. But which is the best NAS for you? Which is the best NAS for your budget? Here are the units featured in the video The Synology DS216J http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216J-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~53916 The Synology DS716+ http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS716+-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51145 DS216+ http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216+-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~53375 DS216 http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~52858 DS216PLAY http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216play-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51092 DS216se http://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216se-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51144 It is safe to say that when it comes to NAS, one of the biggest names out there is Synology. But with so many units being added to their every increasing range every year, it can all get a little confusing. Everyone’s data needs are different and what is important in integral to one user can be a superfluous unrequited feature to another. There’s no denying that the accessing, sharing and distribution of media is a big demand of NAS, but equally there are the concerns of those looking for image based backup, a centralised download server and wireless surveillance. With these needs in mind many first time NAS buyers can get lost quickly. So, with that in mind we present you with our ultimate guide to the 2 Bay NAS devices of Synology’s 2016 range, their strengths, their weaknesses and more importantly, which one is best for which NAS purpose. Before we get into the nitty gritty of which is best for what, it’s important we highlight the things they can ALL do, the features you will expect from such an established NAS brand like Synology NAS.

How Raid works? http://www.span.com/find/Drive__Enclosures/ Nov 2015 - A newer and vastly improved version of this has been released! Check it our here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQO1llEFCs8 Today we want to take a little look at a word that gets thrown about in data storage without really knowing what it means..... namely... RAID. Originally developed for the server market as a means of creating large storage at a lower cost, RAID has now become the operation of choice for those seek higher capacity at lower costs. Of course there are many different kinds of RAID and each has it's own merits and pitfalls, but we want to focus on the big 3... RAID 0...RAID 1...AND RAID 5. These in turn can be categorized by their own primary benefits - CAPACITY, SECURITY and PERFORMANCE. Want to know more?

Everyone wants a fluid 1080p Plex Server? But where do you start? http://www.span.com/feature/Which__NAS__should__I__buy__for__my__Plex__Media__Server~1467 Every heard of Plex? Or more over, have you heard of a Plex Media server? Streaming movies from your collection is something we all enjoy. From home moviess to blockbuster movies, we want to be able to access all of our content anywhere and everywhere. With big video on demand services like YouTube, Netflix and Amazon making streaming HD 10801p media so fast and easy, you would be fooled into thinking that setting up a Plex Media Server on a NAS is straight forward and a piece of pie. WRONG! No sooner have you got your NAS server up and running and installed all the plex apps and plugins, you soon find that you can scarsely get that 1080p HD MKV files to play above 480p on your ipad, android table or smartphone. This is due to transcoding, and it is the biggest limitation when it comes to selecting your NAS for your NAS Plex server. Along side this the ability to migrate the content from you VOD services like Roku, Amazon Instant Video, Apple TV and Netflix in Plex to your network device is now becoming a must to complete your collectiona dna lot of people are asking which NAS they should buy for the perfect Plex media server. You would be fooled into thinking that meia geared NAS units like the Synology DS214PLAY and DS216PLAY are perect Plex servers. Sure they'll run it, but will they run at 1080p?

NAS vs The Cloud – Which one is better? Cheaper? and which is right for you?

NAS vs The Cloud – Which one is better? Cheaper? and which is right for you?

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.
