At IFA 2008, Berlin, LG had a large part of their stand set aside for their N4B1 Network Attached Storage Device – a 4 Bay Linux-based device similar to those we’ve seen from manufacturers like Netgear, Synology and others with the added extra of a Blu-Ray disc writer which can be utilised for additional back-ups.

The LG device is a great looking piece of kit, and LG have tried to spec it up a little, bundling the unit with an iTunes Server, Remote Web Access, FTP Server and other software. It’s not the extensible platform we know and love in Windows Home Server, but it does seem that backup and storage solutions have started to hit the mainstream. It’ll be interesting to see if other manufacturers jump on board at CES in January.
