I invest a new QNAP TS-212P which has RAID 1 support, a faster Marvell 88F6282 at 1.6GHz, and more RAM (512MB) compare to my QNAP TS-112 with Marvell 88F6281 at 1.2GHz and 256MB RAM. I bought two Seagate SV-35 2TB for it.
I use OpenSuSE 13.1 on my ThinkCentre Edge 72z. If you want to back up from different systems, : ” \ / * ? < > | are invalid characters in filenames in Windows NTFS but only / in ext4 and : in OSX according to Invalid Characters in File Names.
Using Network File System (NFS) Service with QNAP TS-112 provides comprehensive information about how to enable NFS on QTS 4.0 device.
I use showmount -e [NAS IP] to check for available shared folders and mount it as a local drive by mount -t nfs [NAS IP]:[Shared Folder] [Local Folder].
FreeFileSync is used to backup files here.
Performance Comparison: NFS and Samba
A media reports that Marvell: Marvell 88F6282 SoC running at 1.6GHz is not as good as Marvell ARMADA 370 at 1.2GHz on Synology DS213j. I only know ARMADA 370 is better because of dual-issue, out-of-oder, double L1 cache (32K), and FPU from datasheet. See if I may invest on it to proof the different.
