NanoPi NEO: How To Build A Cheap Mini NAS
Network storage is really useful. From backups to sharing data, a NAS is an easy way to make storage accessible to everyone on your network.
To build your small one-bay NAS, FriendlyARM last summer launched the perfect mini board: NanoPi NEO – a version of the Raspberry Pi Zero.
The NanoPi NEO is a computer with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, Ethernet and USB ports, and support for a number of accessories.
As well as the NanoPi NEO, you’ll need an add-on kit and a 2.5-inch hard drive. But what’s impressive about the NanoPi NEO NAS kit — aside from its diminutive size — is the price, which comes out to $12.99. (Although you’ll also need a power adaptor, sold separately for $9.89, and a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive to actually put inside the storage bay, just like any other NAS.)
Still, even considering the price of everything together, you’re getting a completely open-source NAS that can run Linux and is about the size of a large smartphone for just over $30.
To transform the little computer in a NAS system, the kit includes an aluminum enclosure and heat sink, and a board that lets you connect a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive or SSD to the NanoPi Neo.
