Build your own Network Attached Storage NAS for FREE see this Video Tutorial

Its true that building a storage infrastructure is an expensive exercise. But you can also build an inexpensive storage solution if you dont want a mission critical solution.Here are videos explaining how you can build your own Network Attached Storage NAS.You can build a NAS storage target using any of supported old PC but if you can put a good enough machine(P4 processor,around 512megabytes of RAM) add 2-3 Gigabit NIC cards(1000Mbps Network cards) then you can build a heavy duty NAS box. The beauty of this whole story is the software which is the heart of this whole storage solution is free its called "FreeNAS". Its a FreeBSD based OS which you can download for free from You can get the embedded version or live version - you can download the iso .
Burn this iso file on a CD.
Boot your machine with this FreeNAS live bootable CD.
Do necessary configurations like : Add drives,Format drives,Mount drives,Enable services like : NFS,FTP,CIFS
NFS(Network File System) > To access NAS volumes from Solaris,Linux or Unix flavours
CIFS (Common Internet File System)(Same as windows file sharing protocol) > To access across Windows OS machines
FTP(File Transfer Protocol) to access from any machine(Win/*nix) as long as you have a FTP client installed
other services like ssh etc/

Next configuration is if you are choosing NFS allow permissions to the IP or IP address range so that they can access these NAS volumes.
Thats it the whole NAS configuration can be completed in less than an hour including boottime.

Watch these videos & write your feedback to roger.smithson @ about your experiment. More advanced Storage videos are being created by some of my blog readers.

Yes information is available on loads of other sites for FREE why am I charging for my website access.

Should I outsource to China,India or United Kingdom

I'd love this blog to grow with quality tech content & thats what has been missing from a long long time. So I was thinking why not ask my readers to write & I'll post their emails with tech content.

Another thing I was reminescing about was - Why dont I outsource this blogging. Someone from UK,USA,China or India may be interested to write articles on my behalf & I reward you in someway. So anyone interested to blog about Storage industry,Storage technology,Career opportunities in Data Storage IT segment.

If you have patience & interest to do blogging on this Weblog plz email roger.smithson @ The whole process is simple you email me the articles & I publish it. I can help in your career as a reward or I can do something in return.

Im sure there are lotsa people willing to share info without any interest for rewards. Lemme see how'll be the response for this article. Anyway outsourcing is definitely a cool option as long as the quality of the blog posts are maintained. Again thats another story :)

Reason I started thinking about outsourcing was couple of guys have started creating videos from the content published on this blog & then I thought why dont I ask them to write more original & useful articles which can be published on this blog.

This is a thought & dont take it seriously. You will see more tech updates from me soon.

Software Testing Tutorial videos from blog readers

For one or other reason I was not able to post any new articles on this blog for quite sometime.

Some of my blog readers have started making videos about storage technology which I'll be posting here soon. I'd encourage everyone to do some video from their experience with their point of view - share with all others.

These are very basic videos about Software Testing sent by a blog reader. Will upload more videos once they are properly edited.

Why is this topic of software testing coming here & why does this other blog looks very similar to me 'cause this guy has copied my template with permission. Testing is the stream which has loads of job opportunities these days hence Software testing tutorial videos had to be featured in here.

I'd love to create some videos for you in future but till then you gotta watch others videos on this blog :) . Still you'l getta learn a lot.

Feel free to share more tech video links from your side email roger.smithson @
