I don’t normally do product introductions but i have been doing the research and have been absolutely blown away by the feature set for the device.
Some of the more stunning features for me are
Network File Protocols Supported
- Microsoft (CIFS/SMB/Rally)
- Linux/UNIX (NFS)
- Apple File Protocal (AFP) and Bonjour support
Dual Gigabit Ethernet—Connectivity with Jumbo frame support and high performance embedded architecture.
iSCSI Target—Provides block-level access for the most efficient storage utilization, especially for database and e
- Add storage capacity by connecting external USB Hard Disk Drives. The ix4 supports read and write on Fat32, NTFS or ext2/ext3, or HFS+ formatted drives
VMWare® Certified—HCL certified NAS (NFS) and iSCSI storage for VMware.
These are only some of the major features I find extremely intriguing for a device that for the base models are under $800, many people are using these or starting to use these for home vmware labs, baring some magic influx of money th is seems like a very affordable way to get network storage available to your home LAN
If anyone out there has gotten to actually play with one of these let me know how it works in real life!
