ROCK64 NAS guide
#1
Hi,

I have been using a Raspberry Pi and lately a Banana Pi as a NAS. The throughput of these devices is really slow (3-4 MB/s for Raspberry Pi and 8-10 MB/s for Banana Pi). I have been looking for an alternative with USB 3.0 for several years and last year I finally found ROCK64 and I'm really happy that I bought it. 

Since I'm always connected to my NAS through a 802.11b Wifi network my bandwidth is limited by the network and not by the ROCK64. I have a throughput of 20 MB/s over Wifi which is perfect for my needs.

To help others to get started with using ROCK64 as a NAS I wrote a guide here:

Best Regards,
Joel
