Intel goes home with NAS for consumers


This home-networking thing is really taking off. With the popularity of BitTorrent, and the average consumer realizing they can rip DVDs they own, home-based network attached storage is going to be a huge market. And Intel know it, that’s why its launching the SS4200 family of affordable, easy-to-use NAS systems.

The systems can contain up to 4 SATA drives and attach to the network via Gigabit Ethernet. Any computers on the network can then mount the share, and everyone can use it for storage, taking the load off all the laptops the pesky kids have.

Pricing will depend on exactly how much storage you need, but this is the first Intel NAS aimed at the home user, and we highly doubt it’ll be the last.
