But a holy place is never empty, and QSAN decided to combine in one device everything that we love in Linux and everything that we value in ZFS.
In this article, we will explore the capabilities of a local mail server that you can configure on your Synology NAS, test the speed, and look at anti-spam methods.
In this article, we're going to find out if a digital content company needs a fast 10 Gigabit NAS accelerated by SSDs? We will explore new technologies for working with SSDs and conduct tests in real applications.
No matter how beautiful IOPS the manufacturers promise us, no matter what synthetic tests show, the real speed of a typical virtual machine depends on how your server is configured and how the application itself works. Let's explore the impact of different types of caching on Synology NAS.
The amount of data stored in the world not only continues to grow, but is growing faster than predicted. It was expected that the share of data stored on flash and solid state drives would increase, while the amount of data stored on hard drives and tape would decrease. However, today it is clear that all three technologies continue to evolve simply because they require a lot of storage capacities.
Synology now has a free solution to back up and restore all of its infrastructure, including virtual machines, desktops, Windows servers, and NAS. We tested all its features, measured the speed and evaluated the pros and cons of this package.
