NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One compliments the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.
As with most NAS appliances, the LinkStation too has a software "finder" application. This allows quick setup of the NAS to get you off and running in no time.
Diving into the web based administration, we have the basic settings menu, with the ability to switch over to advanced mode. From the basic menu you can setup a number of services such as DLNA, BitTorrent and the USB device server.
The advanced menu for the LinkStation offers an expanded set of tools to configure your NAS. Within the file sharing menu, you can setup folders for sharing in addition to managing SMB, AFP and FTP services.
Within the drives menu, the ability to setup USB storage and RAID arrays is made available.
RAID setup options include RAID 0 and RAID 1.
Services for the LinkStation include DLNA, iTunes server, along with the USB device server and print server.
The backup menu allows you to setup Time Machine to backup your Apple devices, and in addition to this we have the standard backup service for Windows machines.
Within the management tab, the ability to setup the data and time along with email notification is made available.
