Q

Counterpoint: What kinds of processors are used in NAS?

What kinds of processors are used in NAS?
Many different kinds are used by vendors. Probably the most common is an Intel Pentium. That should be irrelevant to a NAS user because they don't see anything except the remote file serving that is provided by the NAS device. Anybody that worries about the speeds and feeds of a processor in a NAS device is either a storage system designer or someone who is being seriously misled by a vendor.
