Would this Via Nano motherboard make a good file server?
Jul 31, 2008, 3:20 AM
the motherboard on the first page.
I know the article says it is just a reference board, but the one it shows has a CompactFlash Adapter and 4 SATA ports.
Wouldnt it be nice to install the OS to like an 8 or 16 gig CF card,then hook up 4 SATA drives for storage? (tho good luck finding a right case for that...)...
I wondering if the system itself would be too slow,even for a home file server tho.

Yes it would, but the more affordable solution is NAS.
