Patriot's Javelin Series Does DLNA, Whole Home Media Sharing for All

Patriot's Javelin Series Does DLNA, Whole Home Media Sharing for All

| Software News | Posted: Jan 12, 2011 11:00 pm

CES 2011, Las Vegas - Patriot's Javelin Series consists of two new NAS servers and runs DLNA. We all know that NAS appliances are great for storing data long term but few realize that with DLNA media files can be shared to all computers and consoles on the network. I run a similar network at home and it is great to be able to start a movie downstairs and then finish it in bed later that same night without moving a disk or thumb drive.

Here we see the Javelin starting line up. The new, larger S4 is on the left and the smaller, two drive version is on the right.

The Javelin S4 is the flagship model and uses 4 drives in RAID 0 or RAID 5. To keep your data protected I suggest running RAID 5. The NAS has blue LEDs for power and to show which bays are populated with drives. We can't wait to get our hands on a sample and to see what the cost is. As families get larger and more digital data is collected the need for purpose built "family NAS" appliances has increased. I couldn't imagine living without one and if you've ever lost precious data before you know exactly what I mean.
