synology accepted

went for the Synology disk station ds413j the other day. a little NAS now stuffed with four Western Digital Red drives. It didn't play well with my DLink green switch at first but since I replaced the switch it goes and goes and goes. it stores data as fast as I can shovel it from my drives.

I accept the Synology as apology for the shit Drobo I'm still suffering from. Since the Drobo has now become obsolete I used one of its less well known features and reduced its total capacity drive by drive - its now a three terabyte raid and I'm considering to use it as backup storage behind one of my time-capsules. don't know if that can work but will sure find out.

all that is part of the preparations for the maxed out Mac Mini I've been waiting for for the past two weeks now.

considered an imac but went for the mini

my mac pro is getting old. the gforce graphics accelerator died and I had to go back to the ati radeon the machine had beem shipped with originally. even four gigs of ram decided to just disappear but maybe I can get them back - who knows. anyway - this machine has almost five years on its back and with its many fans and the eight xeon cores it consumes an unreasonable amount of energy compared to modern cpus. in short - a new computer had to be bought.

I waited for the new imac to come out before I finally came to my conclusion. I went for the mac mini. yes, the imac does have more horse-power and a much nicer display. but I already own trackpad and keyboard, plenty of storage, acessories, usb hubs, two 24" displays and whatnot … and the mac mini is much faster than my mac pro - plus it packs more ram. together with the fusion drive and probably a lacie raid it will be on the same level if not slightly above the mac pro and it will consume less power performing the same tasks faster.

what else is wrong about the imac? I'm still not comfortable with the idea of replacing the computer together with any of its failed components. I like the idea to keep things separate. what makes a macbook or an ipad strong just doesn't feel right with a desktop. I considered a powerful macbook as well but there is no real docking option for the macbook and I'm not comfortable running the notebook with the lid closed because of heat building up under the display.

it's going to be a mac mini - I already ordered it. didn't go for the server because there is no fusion drive for it and the drive option is a bit slow. with any luck it should arrive next week and if it's any good I'm gonna post about it here.
