I love the fact that I can store information on my network somewhere other than my local workstation. This way, if I need to rebuild my system, I simply blow it away and then start fresh! All of my data is elsewhere. This might have something to do with my USB drive fascination.
But, USB drives have their limits, especially when it comes to volume. Also, they have their limits when it comes to redundancy. This is why I have turned to a network attached server (or NAS) when it comes to storing and backing up my data at home.
My NAS of choice is FreeNAS which I have mentioned in the past. Just a few hours ago, FreeNAS announced that they have updated their NAS software to version 0.68. In fact, this announcement is so new that it has not even appeared on their website yet!
In honor of the update to FreeNAS, I have decided that I am going to make this FreeNAS Week on Daily Cup of Tech. Look for several articles about using, installing, setting up, and configuring FreeNAS with your systems!If you found this post useful, why don't you buy me a cup of coffee to show your gratitude?
