Installing and Configuring the LaCie Ethernet Disk mini Home

lacie ethernet disk In this story, we fill you in on both of the newest server familiesnamely HPs Celeron-based EX485/487 models and its Core 2 Duo-based EX490/95 models. We also examine some options for building your own small form factor server, thanks to an equipment loan from mini-ITX system builder Logic Supply, to compare what you can build these days versus what you can buy from HP. As it hears from its users and understands that they want more power and capability to play back and transcode videos, as well as provide network backups, share photos and home videos, and establish a low-maintenance Web site for outside access, HP has steadily bolstered the specs of each new generation of its MediaSmart Servers. The following provides additional detail on the various HP MSS models. Model XP/Vista/Win7: backup, media, itunes, NAS MacOS (v10.5+): iTunes, backup, media, NAS Three Generations of HP MediaSmart Servers Compared The differences between the 47* and 48* and 49* models are huge, starting with AMD-based processors in the 47* models versus Intel (Celeron 440 stock in 48* and Celeron 450 in EX490 and dual-core Pentium E5200 in EX495). Storage also increases from 500GB and 1TB in the 47* models to 750GB and 1.5TB for both 48* and 49* models, all using Seagate 7,200 RPM SATA 3 Gb/s drives. As you might expect from a piece of technology, prices have continued to fall on the older models as newer ones have emerged. Fortunately, prices on the newest models are surprisingly low for a pre-built appliance, especially compared to some of the NAS/SAN devices we've reviewed in the past. That makes choosing an EX49* model a no-brainer, as far as were concerned! Two more things: First, both the EX47* and EX49* models support a port multiplier through their eSATA ports (which facilitates up to five more drives to Mobile Data Connectivity: helping the transport industry become more productive be added to the server, given the proper interface). The EX48* models do not include this functionality. If four internal drive bays, three USB ports, and a single eSATA port dont provide you with enough storage options (that's up to 16TB with 2TB drives in every port or bay), this should also steer you toward the EX49* models as well.

Quick Look: HP's MediaSmart EX495 Home Server

Everything else was amazingly easy, if often painfully slow: select a language (English); approve the EULA; assign the server a name (we called ours THGHIPSRV) and create an administrative account and password. After that an automated test checks for blocked ports, then youre taken to the LaCie site to register your unit and obtain a domain name for remote access (ours was thghipsrv.homelacie.com) via the Internet. After that, you use a Web interface to log into the unit (we used the IP address format URL to access the unit). From there you can navigate around the various aspects of the HipServ interface by selecting among the tabs at the left of the units home page. FamilyLibrary: shared media and other files, categorized as FamilyDocuments, FamilyMusic, FamilyPhotos and FamilyVideos.
