[News] Linux a de Facto Operating System in Network-attached Storage

Hash: SHA1

How to Add Network-attached Storage

,----[ Quote ]
| NAS involves more than just attaching a hard drive to a network: NAS devices 
| are really mini file servers. Running an embedded operating system (usually 
| some form of Linux), they give you full control over users and permissions. 
| Most offer additional services as well: some support FTP, virtually all work 
| with both Windows machines and Macs, and many can function as iTunes and 
| media servers, too.     



Debian Linux installer for NAS devices goes beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Former Debian project leader Martin Michlmayr is beta-testing
| a "debian-installer" for devices based on Marvell's Feroceon architecture.
| The installer works with the upcoming "Lenny" release of Debian
| (currently "testing"), and is tested with Qnap Systems's TS-109, TS-209, and
| TS-409 Pro Turbo network-attached storage (NAS) devices.


Debian adding low-power NAS devices

,----[ Quote ]
| Former Debian project leader Martin Michlmayr has released
| a "debian-installer" package for devices based on Marvell's Feroceon
| architecture. Initially supporting the Qnap Systems TS-109 and TS-209
| network-attached storage (NAS) devices, the "developer's release" installs a
| 2.6.25 kernel and Debian unstable, Michlmayr said.


Interview: FreeNAS for No-Cost Network Attached Storage

,----[ Quote ]
| Few recent trends in storage have had as much momentum as Network Attached
| Storage (NAS). A NAS device can make a network more efficient and secure by
| supplying file-based data storage services to networked devices, or it can be
| used for applications such as streaming media. FreeNAS is free, lightweight,
| open source network-attached storage server software, based on FreeBSD.

Fast five-drive NAS box fills more storage gaps

| Last up, one pat on the back to Thecus. All of their devices run Linux,
| and Thecus is being a very good corporate citizens about their use of
| GPL'd code. Normally, you only hear about people violating the GPL or
| have to search their site for a buried link to the source.
| With Thecus, the opposite is true. They put the code on their main
| page, usually right next to the firmware updates themselves. I actually
| saw the code before I realized what it was, quite an unusual situation.
| It was a case of me scratching my head wondering what the .GPL extension
| was before it dawned on me. Again well done.
