The folks at Thecus have just unveiled their latest low-power Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, the N4100 EVO. This new N4100 looks just like previous iterations of this 4-bay NAS, and sports Thecus’ useful LCD and front panel buttons (among many other features), but this latest device is powered by a new, lower-power dual-core SoC from Cavium.

To this point, most of the recently released, higher-end “off the shelf” network attached storage solutions targeted at small business or home users have features low-power Intel Atom processors. Thecus’ new, ultra-high-end N8900, however, boasts an Intel’s Core i3 processor and 8GB of DDR3 memory at its heart. Truth be told, it’s only the custom OS / Firmware of the N8900 that make this a NAS device, as the hardware is obviously capable of running virtually any server OS on the market with a Core i3 and that much memory available. Thecus’ DOM, or disk-on-modules,... Read more...

That's changing this week with their latest announcement, as they've added new Atom CPUs, USB 3.0 and support for SATA 6Gb/s drivers.

Data Robotics is hardly a startup any more. At this point, they're a well-known name in the storage business, and they're still just about the only company out there with automated backup solutions like the Drobo. It's more like a storage robot than a dumb RAID box, and while the company has focused mostly on consumers thus far, they're now starting to break into the enterprise market. They've offered the DroboPro before, but the company's newest line "means business." And that means they're after business dollars. Three main products are being announced this week: an 8-bay file sharing Drobo with... Read more...

The computer maker has just agreed on a deal to acquire Compellent, a provider of highly-virtualized storage solutions with automated data management features, including tiering and thin provisioning, for enterprise and cloud-computing environments.

When you think of NAS drives, you probably think of big, rectangular boxes that aren't much to look at. There's probably 2 or 4 bays in there for hard drives, a power port and an Ethernet jack. They're all pretty simple, and they're all pretty much the same. But this NAS drive is different. Majorly different. Verbatim's newest NAS drive isn't a traditional NAS drive at all. It doesn't even have room for internal storage, and it definitely doesn't ship with any. So what are you to do with a 0GB NAS drive? Add your own Flash memory! The MediaShare Mini was meant to be a consumer-level NAS drive that's... Read more...
If you own a Western Digital NAS drive (like the My Book Live, WD ShareSpace or My Book World Edition), and you also own an Android smartphone, this news is definitely aimed at you. Western Digital just introduced the WD Photos app for Android, giving even Android users the ability to check into their photo album at home.
