Pues hace unos minutos acabo de decidir dar por muerto mi pequeño NSLU2, el motivo de la defunción después de mas de 3 años en funcionamiento, es el mismo que otro NSLU2 que tuve a mi servicio en un anterior trabajo, el cacharro sigue funcionando pero a la que le enchufas los discos duros se reinicia, da error y es inaccesible.

Las pruebas que hice en su momento fue primero actualizar el firmware a la última versión e instalar la slug, la distribución gnu/linux dedicada a estos dispositivos.

Ahora toca buscarle un sucesor, así que si alguien tiene alguna idea de lo que puede ser el próximo NAS? los requisitos mínimos es que sea gigabit y permita enchufarle unos 4 discos, gestión de usuarios por samba y algún interfaz web para navegar entre los directorios.
Pijaditas que me gustaría sería enchufar discos IDE y SATA en caliente, NFS, a ser posible webdav y si permite hacer streaming ya sería la repera.

¿Qué tenéis vosotros en casa?

Hola Blackhold, pues yo en casa no tengo nada pero ando tras algún dispositivo de almacenamiento que se lleve bien con Linux y mi TV. Lo ideal es que tuviera USB del rápido y Ethernet para conectar a mi red local. ¿Alguna recomendación?

Puedes intentar con un AppleTV, yo consegui uno por $120 Von shipping y handling. Tienen un proc intel i686, 256MB RAM un disco IDE, wifi y Ethernet, lo mejor de todo es HDMI

jo tenc males experiències amb els dispositius externs en general, ja siguin per xarxa o directament per USB.

aquests trastets tenen un perfil domèstic i no estan pensats perquè estiguin 24×7 en marxa.

per exemple, jo tenia una carcassa que només començava a tenir problemes a partir de certa temperatura. no el podia tenir en marxa més de 3-4 hores.

els qnap ja van adreçats a un client semi-professional, però costen una pasta.

al final, el més barat i versàtil és comprar-te un barebone de tamany mitjà on hi càpiguen 2-4 discs i muntar-t’ho tu.

Muchas gracias por los comentarios.

Apardo, a ver que sale de aquí, fijo que os enteraréis por donde he tirado :)

Orvtech, quizás si esté bien lo del apple tv, pero no me tira mucho apple últimamente, lo usa demasiada gente xD

Muzzol, lo que comentas de un barebone ya es una cosa que había tenido en cuenta, incluso estaba mirando precios de un dell mini y montar ahí un jinzoraa así tengo lo que comentaba del streaming :P

Los cacharros que me dijo knoppix no están nada mal tampoco… la red de casa puede ser cualquier cosa menos doméstica, es mas bien un poco salvaje… ;)

Venga, venga, mas!

jo tinc l’eTRAYZ (99 EUR + despeses d’enviament) al qual li has de sumar el disc SATA.
el link és aquest

L’unic que no m’agrada és que el firm, la primera vegada, només es pot instalar des de WIN i això que és un linux!!. Una vegada el tens ja és questió de manegar-lo per SSH o web.

Però el millor de tot és la colecció de programes que s’ha currat un paio en PHP (sota llicència GNU, crec recordar) és una autèntica passada. El link és el d’abaix, em temo que t’hauras de registrar a la web per tenir accés i veure el torrent de programes que soporta.
Fes-li una ullada, a veure què et sembla.

En tot cas t’adjunto tots els programes que es pot instalar al bitxo en dos clics

jo el vaig comprar a la pròpia pàgina web ja que també tinc el reproductor multimedia (extreamer)i per això feien un preu amb descompte.
Distribuidors per aquí… jo conec als de electrònicaweb perquè estan a 5 minuts de casa meva, com a nota curiosa, és la botiga on compra el cálico electrónico les seves andròmines dels primers capitols.
Bé, que ja m’enrollo massa
mira’t els distribuidors de Barna (per si no els havies vist ja)

Jo estic més que content amb ell tot i que l’utilitzo bàsicament com a magatzem i per baixar continguts. Però realment les possibilitats són increibles, sobre tot per tú que veig que domines més el tema de servidors.
Ja em diràs si el compres què et sembla. I no t’oblidis de fer un post-tuto de la part mes friki que és la que porto més fluixa i que m’interessarà

Hola!. Magnífic bloc. Estic buscant un NAS però el etrayZ ja no està a la venda. Quin model recomanes? Poder fer de servidor FTP/correo/servidor musical estaria de conya.
