Where i live the public sector is technologically outdated to say the least (many computers still run on Windows 98, how about that?) so you can imagine how surprised i was when i visited the local town hall and saw a NAS server standing tall right next to several old systems with CRT screens. Well it turns out that this NAS server is used solely for local backup and already counts 3 years but still it was nice to see that things are progressing, even here. That being said a couple of weeks ago i mentioned that the leading NAS manufacturers like QNAP, Thecus and Synology have released several new models so it was really just a matter of time before some of them landed at our doorstep. Last time we thoroughly checked the TurboNAS TS-470 Pro by QNAP and although it’s quite an expensive piece of technology it did turn out to be the fastest ever in our charts and earned the 1st place.
