  Discussion ready NAS

NAS- storage (memorizing(her)devices(about)or their array) available via the Internet.
Why do I need a NAS?
A NAS can serve both for uploading files to it via the Internet, as well as for availability / distribution of files to others.
You can upload backups, files from mobile devices, torrents or others, incl. remote control (instead of "I will come home - download").
The NAS can play other server or home.comp server roles, serving as, for example, a web server, a player (if it has video output or WiFi through which you can organize a miracast or the like, you can connect to a TV / monitor or the like .) surfing device and / or other
What NAS-s are
NAS can be divided into:
  • Powerful NAS- servers or desktop (fairly powerful) computers.
  • Power Efficient NAS, Intensively Distributing Files- must have sufficient power, because need to deal with a large number of connections.
  • Low Power NAS- going to ARM. These include ready-made home NAS. Can play the role of network block devices*
  • Weak NAS- gather on weak ARMs, for example, on anyone (more) unnecessary boards of old bodies / tablets or routers with USB. Suitable for network block device function.*, but they can also distribute torrents.
*Network block device - NAS drive (or their array), work with which occurs in the mode of the same name (SAN) - operation mode with a drive as with a local one (connected directly physically). This is done through protocols such as AoE (in LAN) oriSCSI(ensuring availability through the Internet).
The features of the network block device mode are:
1) low demands on RAM and NAS capacities (since the conversion of sata signals to iSCSI is a computationally simple task, and therefore this mode can be called a high-performance mode)
2) only one device can be connected to a network block device (i.e., a NAS in this mode) (i.e., a sata device) —that is, This mode is suitable for using one NAS, although you can connect to it, for example, from a phone, distribute files through the phone, besides - iSCSI can be turned on only occasionally when you need to use a disk (for example, when uploading backups), and the rest of the time, distribute files in other modes. (but Ididn't answerIs it possible to work with non-iSCSI NAS if iSCSI access is enabled in standby mode?

NAS server can be raised to:
  • serverchipsets
  • any x86 / 64-computer / ultra- / laptop or the like (transformer, MS surface type tablet)
  • x86 / 64 low-power wind-ups (atoms / Core M) (for example, tablet boards and TV sticks)
  • single board (raspberry, orange or others)
  • routers with USB, in which you can plug in the drive (s) (including HDD via USB-Sata adapter)
  • boards of android devices (phone / tablets, etc.) withOTG(for drive), because microSD-SATA adapters not found.
FAQ
What to buy?
Choose according to their tasks and according to the characteristics necessary for them: power, RAM, ports (ethernet, HDMI if needed, camera, if home video is needed) and possible OS (maybe android is needed).
  • It can be impractical to use ordinary computers and laptops due to energy consumption (recount yourself for money). When buying, consider the process technology of the processor. To discuss the NAS on a serious glandixbt theme(there is your ownFAQ).
  • There are laptops / ultrabooks / transformers / windplates on core i and computers (or their boards) with a fairly low power consumption (for example, some mini or nano-ITX with embedded processes and video), but the power you need.
  • The mobile boards of the windplates with the percentages of the corresponding series are not so powerful, but they may be enough for your tasks. Usually, 2GB RAM is built in there (at least 1GB).
  • Android devices are usually cheaper and more powerful than single-board devices and have more RAM, but they do not have ethernet (sometimes solved by a USB adapter) (and this is not a problem if you have WiFi at home and you will install a NAS at home), speed Data transfer via USB on some boards may be low, so you should know it before you buy it.
Odnoplatniki

Cheap options:

android boards
I would recommend at least 1GB of RAM.
The cheapest is the boards of bodies and tablets (from 0 rub, right now, like garbage):
  • OTG support should be (for the drive), because microSD-SATA adapters not found.
  • ideally, they should be taken free of charge from someone from their city / district, if they put them up for sale by announcement - you can return it when there is a buyer, or even send it to yourself, because the buyer is on an old phone / tablet fee with probability>99% will not be found, but the fee will not wallow.
  • You can find a broken device with a cracked tach / display and / or not charging (working only with a charger)
  • if the display does not work - support is required to start and configure the OSMhl(an adapter can be rented), otherwise you will need a display with a suitable cable, which you can either buy and sell, or borrow from repairmen’s friends (after all, it is not a long time to start and configure it).
You can also look at the android-dongles (hdmi dongle) (they are with WiFi) and tv-boxes (with ethernet)

Software tuning
OS
  • for servers / computers / laptops / windows use linux / windows /Solaris/ FreeBSD / NAS4Free, google
  • You can install almost any ARM-linux / unix distribution kit on the single-board system; they should be uploaded in acc. Subject (single-board) or somewhere in Google, look for firmware for routers in the same way.
  • On Android-based boards / devices, you can use an Android (almost any software, including server software, you already have one), or you can choose the GNU / Linux distribution and install it using the appropriate software - withLinux Deployor the like. Linux Deploy launches Linux directly into android, and can stop the android (inframebuffer mode, maybe even somehow). There are no ready-made NAS distributions with instructions for Linux Deploy yet.
Torrents
To minimize the necessary resources (RAM, CPU) of the needed torrent client, you can minimize the number of connections, but at the same time so that the torrent client does not become almost confused, you need to configure it, and it’s quite flexible - I asked about ithere.
About what kind of software to mount the drive in windows / anroid / linux (in linux deploy) (and under what protocols) infa is not collected.

microSD-SATA adapters not found.

and once I read that these were released ...
hereThey write that it would be a complicated and, therefore, expensive device, unlike sd>sata adapters.

Meanwhile:
  • The number of routers from which NAS can be made is multiplied (for which there are firmware with torrent clients), but no one makes a list of them, apparently few people are interested
  • Android boxes are sold at auctions in the region of $ 20 (ebay) - they can replace routers, making this
  • More and more routers with USB and samba are also available (“fly”), and now broken phones and tablets are a lot like garbage - you can install a torrent client on them that distributes files from the router's USB media ( You can distribute with otg-usb, and also replace them with a router if you buy a usb-ethernet adapter)
