Running Debian on Inexpensive Network Storage Devices

Network Storage Devices (NAS) are gaining popularity and are available quite inexpensively. For most customers, they are basically just a hard drive that you connect to the network for file storage. In reality, these devices are complete, even if fairly low-end, computers - and Debian can be installed on some of them.

This talk will show how combining a NAS with Debian gives you a low-power and quiet server for home use. In particular, this talk will cover new devices that are based on Marvell's Orion platform, such as the KuroBox Pro and in particular the QNAP TS-201.
