Thumbs up Re: Looking for a NAS

Same...would not use them in a NAS myself, hence why I asked if it's common practice in the data center industry...probably not.

Re: Cisco IP phone F-up

Unhappy Re: Looking for a NAS

Well damn, you're right - they are (https://www.wd.com/products/internal-storage/wd-red.html)....I would've never thought something so "high-end" would be 5400. I thought there's no way it'd be...

Re: Looking for a NAS

Re: Looking for a NAS

There's not that much disk "congestion" going on in MY particular environment - 2 clients at a time MAX - since I have a small number of them. I imagine in a corporate environment, this would call...

Red face Re: Looking for a NAS

Red face Re: Looking for a NAS

Let's talk practical: what do you call "sequential" access vs. random access ? I can kinda guess that "random" means this

Re: Looking for a NAS

Another thing that just crossed my mind when thinking about making a PC into a file server is the SATA interface the motherboard's got: all MBs I have available at the moment are SATA 2. I'm not sure...

Re: Does flux expire ?? Flux discussion.

Talking Re: Does flux expire ?? Flux discussion.

ROFL ! I think I just spat my drink all over the laptop - liquid damage ! :group:

Re: Looking for a NAS

Did a little practical test today, out of curiosity: I dragged a 2 hour long MP3 file from the NAS to the torrent "server" running Windows. I opened it on my laptop client from both the NAS share and...

Re: Looking for a NAS

Mapping seems to be the only option, since that would treat the remote share as a local drive, but I'd have to do it on every...
