Netgear ProSAFE Chassis M6100 Switch Series Review

The Netgear ProSAFE Chassis M6100 Series is a series of switches that can be housed in a single 4U chassis (3U for switches, 1U for redundant power supplies). The Chassis M6100 Series delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 rich services (no license required) and 1G/10G mixed infrastructures in server rooms. The M6100 is aimed at campuses SMBs that want to deploy from core to edge, but don’t want to exhaust their IT budget in the process. The Netgear ProSAFE Chassis M6100 Series is a high performing, highly resilient, fully redundant, and “future proof” switch series. The entire feature set including datacenter (DCBX, PFC, ETS, FIP Snooping) and advanced IPv6 L3 routing (OSPF, PBR, BGP) is available without license.

Synology Surveillance Station 7.0 Review

Synology has several great, free apps for DiskStation and RackStation owners. What’s most talked about is that Synology devices offer ease of use, the ability to share and sync files across multiple platforms, and their reliability to protect your data. Synology also offers another comprehensive service that is incredibly powerful and equally valuable; Surveillance Station. Surveillance Station turns a Synology NAS into a robust surveillance system to help protect user’s homes and offices. It allows users to watch live feeds, playback recordings, and batch manage cameras.

Dot Hill AssuredSAN 4824 Review

As we previously mentioned, Dot Hill released a major software update though that amongst other things, optimizes their 4004 controller architecture for hybrid configuration. Like other AssuredSAN models (such their Ultra line we previously reviewed here Ultra48 hybrid and here non-hybrid), the 4004 controller is also the controller in the Dot Hill AssuredSAN 4824 array. And much like the other 4000 series, the 4824 leverages dual AssuredSAN 4004 controllers and can be deployed with swappable Fibre Channel and iSCSI transceivers, including deployments that incorporate both transceiver types. The 4824 is also available with 12Gb SAS connectivity, adding to the flexibility in storage deployment.
