Will a NAS solve my Big Data Nightmare?

You’ve checked Reddit, Google, Twitter, all the forums, but you still haven’t found the answer to the question burning deep into your soul. “What is an NAS? Do I need one?” Look no further, friend. In this video we dig deep into the philosophy behind when Network Attached Storage is right for you, and when you just need to let some of that archived footage go.

  • I’ve reviewed OWC’s approach to NAS. I understand how it works.

    I am looking to replace the functionality of my old TimeCapsule for TimeMachine backups. On paper, it looks like I can buy something like a high quality ASUS Router and connect one of. your network connected drives to provide an accessible disk for TimeMachine. However, the whole subject of JellyFish confuses me. Do I need to install this application on my Mac to make the disk act like an NAS?

    What experience to you folks have creating a simple method of creating an environment that will handle TimeMachine? We use this approach for our laptops. My Mac Studio uses a directly connected disk, which, of course, works perfectly, accept when the computer goes to sleep I always get the “Disk incorrectly shut down” notification, which I can ignore. It is just annoying, that is all.

    • Hi Jack. No, you only need the Jellyfish application for those specific Jellyfish units. But the set up you are describing can even be accomplished with a usb connected external drive, so long as the router accepts a USB data connection. I would recommend giving a call in to our Technical Support team to go over your set up and needs, they’d be able to help build the right solution in the budget you have to work with! https://eshop.macsales.com/Service/
