New NAS Comparison Guide

April 15th, 2012 No comments

Find a NAS is a site I setup to help sort through the large number of prebuilt NAS devices on the market. I’m intending it as a jumping off point for those wanting to get a feel for the market.

Building an Ultra-Low-Power File Server with the Trim-Slice

April 2nd, 2012 1 comment

Linux Journal builds a low power NAS with an Arm-based server and USB hard drives.

As an experiment, and finally to get rid of that large, inefficient and ugly tower case, I decided to use the new Trim-Slice as the base for an ultra-low-power, ultra-small replacement file server. The Trim-Slice is built on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform, and the specific model I purchased features a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 32GB SATA SSD.
