Network attached storage (NAS)

Network-attached storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to a heterogeneous group of clients. NAS not only operates as a file server, but is specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. NAS is often manufactured as a computer appliance – a specialized computer built from the ground up for storing and serving files – rather than simply a general purpose computer being used for the role.

Max. throughput (read)

In communication networks, such as Ethernet or packet radio, throughput or network throughput is the average rate of successful message delivery over a communication channel. This data may be delivered over a physical or logical link, or pass through a certain network node. The throughput is usually measured in bits per second (bit/s or bps), and sometimes in data packets per second or data packets per time slot.

Processor

i

Processor

A processor is a key component of a computing device, which steers other components via software. The fundamental property of a processor is its programmability. The behaviour of a processor is determined by programmers by means of computer code. The main processor components are the register, arithmetic and logic unit (ALU), control unit and the memory management unit (MMU), which administers memory. Central tasks of a processor include arithmetic operations, reading and writing data in the memory as well as executing programme jumps.

Processor clock frequency
i

Processor clock frequency

In electronics and especially synchronous digital circuits, a clock signal is a particular type of signal that oscillates between a high and a low state and is utilized like a metronome to coordinate actions of circuits. Although the word signal has a number of other meanings, the term is here used for "transmitted energy that can carry information".

A clock signal is produced by a clock generator. Although more complex arrangements are used, the most common clock signal is in the form of a square wave with a 50% duty cycle, usually with a fixed, constant frequency. Circuits using the clock signal for synchronization may become active at either the rising edge, falling edge, or, in the case of double data rate, both in the rising and in the falling edges of the clock cycle.

Number of processor cores

Number of processor cores

A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.

Edition 03/2016- Die Einrichtung des Netgear ReadyNAS 214 ist sehr komfortabel gestaltet, dies geschieht einfach über eine Web-URL im Browser. Auch die Einrichtung des Kontos für den Fernzugriff kann hier erledigt werden. Riskante Einstellungen sind per Fernzugriff übrigens nicht möglich, dies ist vorbildlich gelöst. Das NAS kann mit einer mannigfaltigen Auswahl an Sicherheitsmöglichkeiten aufwarten. Mit weniger als 30 dB(a) auf einen Meter Entfernung arbeitet es zudem sehr leise, jedoch kann man es zusätzlich per Zeitplan herunter oder automatisch hochfahren. Leise, leistungsfähig und prima ausgestattet sind die Argumente für das RN214, das dürftige Handbuch kostet jedoch ein paar Punkte.more

Edition 03/2016 - Auch wenn es für Netgears ReadyNAS 214 nur zum dritten von vier Plätzen reicht, handelt es sich hier um ein Profi-System welches man durchaus empfehlen kann. Mit einem Preis von rund 400 Euro ist es die günstigste Alternative im Testfeld, dennoch erringt es am Ende eine sehr gute Note im Test. Der Sieger der Klasse Preis/Leistung ist jedoch nicht nur günstig, sondern punktet mit einem sparsamen Betrieb, zumal es mit Bitrot-Schutz (Btrfs), einer ordnerbasierten Snapshot-Funktion oder auch mit einem On-Access-Virenscanner auftrumpfen kann.

Edition 02/2016- Das NAS-System macht seine Sachen im Test prima, sodass man hier gar nicht an einer sehr guten Wertung vorbei kommt. Es handelt sich beim NETGEAR ReadyNAS 214 um eine leise Alternativem welche zudem mit einer starken Leistung aufwarten kann. Weiterhin ist das System als bestens ausgestattet zu bewerten, zumal man selbst einige interessante Sicherheitsfunktionen finden kann. Hinsichtlich des Bedienkomforts muss man jedoch nochmal Hand anlegen, gerade die Online-Hilfe und das Handbuch sollten nochmal überarbeitet werden.more

Hello,
Is the model older?. the manufacturer specifications refer to a quad-core processor:

Yeah, i think that's a typo. This product has a Quadcore ARM Cortex A15 processor. There's no other model in existence with Dualcore.
