Throughout the nation, we have several FreeNAS boxes (there's a few terabytes of storage on each one) and we currently do manual rsyncs to keep them in line. But we need some sort of Dropbox service running on each. Has anyone ever tried this before? We need something like a total file system...

At my house, we have a Pentium 4 based Ubuntu server that we need to replace with a Intel Atom-based machine for our network services. We're thinking of using a low-powered NAS over a GbE with 1 TB of space and RAID. Is there something like this? Should we rather get a full size ATX mobo and...

We have a NAS that has two different ethernet ports. One's connected to the router. We haven't connected the second one but we heard that if we connected it, it would double the speed of data to and from the NAS. We're using the USB port for backup. But what should we really use the second LAN port...
