NAS server device with LDAP client support?

By javpub ·
I'm looking for a NAS server device with LDAP client support for a small business (less than 20 users). I've been searching the web but I didn't find many options.

So far , it seems that the Buffalo Terastation seems to be the only small business device with this capability.
I also would need a volume encryption support.

I'd appreciate information about other devices that can provide this support, and experience with the Terastation. It it a reliable device? Does buffalo offer good customer support?

Well, I don't have any experience w/ the Buffalo devices, so no help there. I do like the ReadyNAS devices, though I do not believe they natively support full drive encryption. Another possibility would be setting up a FreeNAS device if you have a spare PC around. There are some articles online regarding setting up encryption on them (such as

You could also use some sort of 3rd party encryption software such as TrueCrypt, if you wanted to go that way.

As an aside, if you do go with FreeNAS, I have had the best success with using something such as gparted to format the drives/partitions and then add them as pre-formatted from within FreeNAS's web interface. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
