A majority of my blog posts lately have been about future tech and how great things are going to be months or years from now. I wanted to take the time to talk about a product i have had for over 4 years now, Sonos! Click on the read more below to find out more about Sonos and how it can serve you.
This has been a special month, first my Windows home server started to show signs of a close death. This resulted in me buying my qnap NAS. the following week my Samsung Galaxy S4 decided to quit on me and the same evening my Asrock Vision HTPC got a blue screen and died as well. I have not yet investigated the HTPC failure but i suspect that the SSD drive has failed somehow. I was looking into changing out this computer anyways so this was a good opportunity to try something new.
So here it goes, my firs blog post in English. Reason being is that a lot of people on the QNAP and Plex user forum have requested more inputs regarding the matter i am going to write about.
I have been a windows home server user for many years. When Windows home server (WHS) came along it had a built in duplication method for data redundancy, this was removed in Windows Home server 2011, but third party applications later came with similar functionality. The duplication method meant that you would create a pool of hard drives effectively halfing your storage pool capacity for backup, At the time i didn't have a lot of data on the server, so that wasn't a problem for me. Media files have grown in size by time as HD became a standard and 4K resolution is going to take over.
