wow.. a small, yet powerful web server under 100 USD.

We could use it as redundant server for boot land! :cheers:

A NAS with two bottlenecks? :cheers:

ETHERNET+USB 2.0 Speed?

I guess that a picoITX:

with SATA2 and Gigabit Ethernet is needed, or, maybe better :cheers:, boards designed for NAS:

The thingie looks interesting :cheers:, though IMHO not suited for a NAS.

If they added to it a network over mains interface, something like this:

I guess it could be a very nice thing for less speed demanding chores. :cheers:

Nice toy, but not really usable without a HDD, which would need to be external and raise the power consumption to levels above a traditional NAS.

:cheers:

edit: Oops cross posting.

What would stop us from using a USB pendisk instead of HDD to save on power consumption? :cheers:

Of course one might say that flash drives (especially the really cheap ones) are quick to die under heavy usage but then again, won't 512Mb be enough to run a OS solely from RAM along with the website and use the flash disk for the initial boot load?

Not much use as NAS but at least it seems a fairly decent web server.

Just some thoughts.

:cheers:

Mostly the poor performance, i would guess.

I like that simplicity of it.
