MyCloud Mini

This article introduces the basics of network attached storage, also known as NAS. The information can be used as reference for all kinds of products but it was written mainly for AKiTiO's network attached storage enclosures. For more specific details about your network drive, please refer to the user manual that corresponds to your product.

MyCloud Mini

AKiTiO believes the digital home is evolving into a place where there are no barriers or limits. The MyCloud in the personal cloud server series is based on this belief. It provides the user the ability to seamlessly store, organize, share, and access their music, movies, and photos.

The personal cloud server is the next step up in the evolution of home network attached storage drives. It is no longer a PC centric product that requires a skilled system administrator to set up and maintain but a product that is designed to be user friendly and connected, anywhere and anytime.

Toshiba Regza

Toshiba's latest line of Regza LED/LCD TVs are able to record TV programs to attached USB drives or via LAN connection to network attached storage drives (NAS).

AKiTiO has tested some of its popular storage devices with a Toshiba Regza LCD TV (37Z9500) for compatibility. Products have been connected either via USB or via Ethernet and were tested for functionality, which includes registration, recording, playback and trick play. For network attached storage enclosures (NAS) that come with built-in media server, additional tests have been done for DLNA playback (JPEG and MPEG-2).
