It is a single board computer with AMD64 CPU. It comes with 4GB ECC RAM and USB 3.0 ports. So, you may be able to use it as a NAS if you connect an external USB 3.0 HDD enclosure to it.

Although its CPU is not fast, you can compile binary packages in a copy of apu2d4 on a fast desktop computer and send them back to apu2d4.

I use a couple of these for my mail-server, lamp-server and backup-server.

Haven't tried NAS - but I'd expect they'd work fine for that, too :)

I realized that Ryzen 3 2200g and a quiet fractal case that houses 6 HDDs are much better for NAS.
