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?


Thanks!

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 http://freenas.org/documentation:setup_and_user_guide:disk_encryption).

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.
