I am wondering as is there dedicated servers for routing as (ipcop,pfsnese) and also for telephony as (elastix, asteriskNow) and other similar projects , Does exists something for home made NAS servers. I want to use some of old hardware to make my home server for holding videos,pictures and others media. Is there any rabbit in hat for that or Ill must go from begin collecting all pulses together to make NAS server.


OpenFiler and FreeNAS are the two that spring to mind.
