Nikon Europe has today enhanced its COOLPIX range with the launch of the COOLPIX S9100, an ultra high-zoom camera that makes it possible to take wide-angle and super telephoto shots from a compact, pocket-friendly body. The COOLPIX S9100 introduces zoom capabilities that are almost inconceivable in such a slim, lightweight model, with its impressive 18x NIKKOR wide-angle lens offering a range from 25mm to 450mm.
To ensure sharp shooting in any situation, a highly sensitive back illuminated CMOS image sensor means that even in low light or extremely bright conditions, the camera will easily capture the scene, so both night and day shots are recreated exactly as you experienced them. Completing the package, Full (1080p) HD movie-recording with stereo sound offers more versatility than ever before. Read the rest of this entry »
Network attached storage (commonly abbreviated to NAS) – are storage devices that can be accessed over a computer network (usually TCP/IP), rather than directly being connected to the computer (internal hard drives or external USB/SCSI drives). NAS devices enable multiple computers to share the same storage space at once.
These devices are assigned an IP address and can then be accessed by clients (PCs or laptops) via a server that acts as a gateway to the data (this server is within the NAS device and hence NAS devices are often referred to as NAS servers).
Some of the big advantages of NAS include the expandability; if you need more storage space, add another NAS device and expand the available storage. They also bring an extra level of fault tolerance to the network. Fault tolerant measures such as RAID can be used to make sure that the NAS device does not become a point of failure. NAS systems often contain more than one hard disk drive, often arranged into logical, redundant storage containers or RAID arrays for added redundancy/security – thus protecting data in the case of disk failure.
Benefits of NAS
Network Attached Storage (NAS) has emerged as a powerful, proven technology for storing data that needs to be shared in the office or the home. Network attached storage (NAS) devices enable home and business users to easily share large amounts of data in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
