Free Network Attached Storage

Hi guys, I`d like to apologize for going MIA  for a while. From today I`II be posting new posts everyday. Now down to business. We all like to upgrade computers or buy news. Most of the time we always look for another buyer to purchase the old PCs or we end up dumping the old PC. recently i realized that you can still make use of your old PC. The other day I came across a software called FreeNAS. FreeNAS is actually free network attached storage software. A Network attached storage is a data storage connected to a computer network. By now you`re familiar with home networks whereby you have a high-speed internet connection connected to several PCs, laptops, HDTV or smart phones at home either wired or wireless. You can further improve this network by adding a network attached storage in this home network where you`ll be storing  movies, music, and media files that can be accessed anywhere within the network. Manufacturers such as HP have products like HP EX470 MediaSmart Server which serve the same purpose but at a much higher cost. FreeNAS is more cost effective because it adds these features to your old PC at very little cost. FreeNas is a freeware and anyone can download it any time and follow the instructions on how to implement it. the basic feature set that comes with freeNas are
  1. Web User interface
  2. Command Line Interface
  3. Zeta File System
  4. Snap Shots
  5. Backup and Restore
  6. 10Gig Ether drivers
  7. Thin provisioning
  8. File sharing and many others
Initial web interface configuration

The other really good feature about it is once you have installed and it`s running. It doesn`t need a keyboard, mouse, and monitor connected for it to work. It can be accessed remotely through a command line or a web interface.
