Available File Formats and iSCSI
ThecusOS has the wonderful ability that you can pick what file system you’d like to have. Each of them have their own merrit and you got EXT3, EXT4, BTRFS, and XFS as options. I’ve tested all but EXT3 with a single disk setup in order to show the slight differences and where what shines. There are naturally more things than plain speed to consider, so pick wisely.
I’ve also included an iSCSI mounted share EXT4 partition in this comparison char to show what power can be behind this method of connecting storage. Windows 7 and forward all have iSCSI initiators built in and the setup only takes a few clicks on your NAS and PCs.
