At funglr Games, when we write articles covering events or reviewing products (mainly energy drinks), we take pictures with a single-lens reflex camera.
Since we never know when or how we will need the photos we take, such as when we use them in printed materials, provide them to other companies free of charge, or use them as e-sports free materials, we store and manage all of them, including the undeveloped data, on a NAS.
However, the NAS I have been using has run out of capacity...
Not only photographers but also streamers who distribute games tend to have a large amount of large files such as video files, don't they?
Therefore, LAN cable man, who is responsible for the server infrastructure of the entire Fangler Group, considered purchasing a new NAS.
As a result, he decided to purchase the " StoreJet Cloud 210N" NAS from Transcend, a Taiwanese company that can be recommended for both individuals and corporations, because of its outstanding cost performance!
Transcend's NAS "StoreJet Cloud 210N" outer box
The "StoreJet Cloud 210N" can be purchased at Transcend's official store, Amazon, and various e-commerce malls such as eTrend.
This time, I wanted to buy something else, so I bought it on Amazon.
In terms of size, it is about the same size as a typical NAS on the market.
It is about one size larger than Buffalo's "nasne," which is currently sold out and is the talk of the town.

StoreJet Cloud 210N features
- RAID 1 support
- Automatic backup
- Mobile support
- Media playback
- Anywhere access
The minimum required, but it keeps the basics in place.
The RAID 1 configuration allows the same data to be written to two HDDs so that operation can continue even if one fails.
If you are still concerned, you can connect an external HDD to obtain further backups for even greater peace of mind.
The Anywhere Access function allows access from outside the office, making it ideal for remote workers.
Initial setup is completed in three easy steps: "Turn on the power, connect to the router, access the NAS, and register as a user.
Separate HDD is required
Since no HDD is included in the package, we used a Western Digital HDD this time.
The RED series is designed to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so it is a good match for NAS use.
The capacity of the old NAS was 4 TB, so this time we took the plunge and increased it to 12 TB.
This will allow me to store as much as I want for a while.
It is good that I can choose HDDs according to my own convenience, whether I want to keep it cheap, increase the capacity, or increase the durability.
End of the "StoreJet Cloud 210N" unpacking ceremony!

As the product name suggests, the "StoreJet Cloud 210N" also works with the cloud...? The era is the cloud!
