When you think of Patriot Memory
, the first things that comes to mind are probably their high quality system memory and their line-up of flash based memory products. What you probably don't think of as being a Patriot Memory device is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) enclosure. These devices allow you to put storage directly onto your network, letting selected users access it without the need to have dedicated server.
For years NAS devices were mainly found in large data centers, not homes. However, with the large amount of digital data that needs to be stored for personal use, low cost NAS devices have quickly found their way into our homes.
Patriot Memory has recently released their first NAS device; the Corza 2-Drive NAS enclosure. This device is designed to use two SATA drives in either a RAID 0, RAID 1, or Linear (aka JBOD) configuration. While two SATA drives doesn't sound like much, the Corza can provide up to 4TB of storage space based on currently available drives, which should be more than an average home needs.
Before taking a look at the sample provided for review, let's take a look at what Patriot Memory has to say about the Corza 2-Drive NAS enclosure. For complete information on the Corza, please visit Patriot Memory's official product page
