Thecus has done it, so has QNAP and Synology, but now easy to configure, web interface, personal cloud storage from your home has moved to very low cost NAS appliances. The Akitio MyCloud Duo is more than just a standard dual bay NAS server. With full DLNA, application server and now MyCloud web connectivity, the Akitio appliance is a full featured storage unit with several features previously found on units that cost several times more.


Like everything else in life though, low-cost means that corners were cut somewhere. The Akitio MyCloud Duo looks like a budget product. Most of the unit is made from steel or aluminum, but a healthy dose of plastic is thrown in. Also, as with many of these products we've looked at in the past, the data bandwidth to and from the device is limited, even if the spec sheet claims gigabit Ethernet support.


Let's dive in and see if the Akitio MyCloud Duo is able to beat the odds and supply the claimed bandwidth and functions that make us look past some of the corner cutting shortcomings.
