Thecus NAS & Vmware

Hello All,

I'm looking to invest in a NAS for my network. Ultimately i'm looking to have a gigabit network throughout my house. I want to host vmware images on my NAS and boot into it from my PC. What do you recommend for this and will a NAS be able to provide the speed i need?

I'd also like to host movie/audio files on the NAS and be able to stream them to my TV/PC without having to physically connect a hdmi or dvi cable to the device.

I'm looking into the Thecus line of products.

Thanks!

You can use any Gigabit NAS device you like for Vmware Image storage... i have done this and the decrease in speed is vvery minimal... almost not noticeable...

You can also stream anything from your NAS to your TV... You can use any network enabled media player for this job. I recommend PopCorn Hour A110 which is a great device - http://www.popcornhour.com/onlinestore/
