It is common for households to have more than one computers these days. Because of that, people want to be able to share files easily. Usually, people do this by sharing specific folders on their computer, but this requires one computer or another to be on. This is where the utility of a networked attached storage (NAS) device comes in. It is a central storage place that every computer on the network can access.
Today we will be looking at the Qnap TS 209 Pro II. This is meant for small/medium businesses, but can also be used in the home office as well. What is different with this product is that you will find it packed with many more features than just your standard NAS product. For example, you can use it as a media or web server. Or you can use it to download Bittorent files as well.
