Samba Storage

Samba Storage is additional storage you can directly add to your Fengqi.Asia machines.

Samba is based on the common client/server protocol of Server Message Block (SMB) and Common Internet File System (CIFS). Using client software that also supports SMB/CIFS (for example, most Microsoft Windows products), an end user sends a series of client requests to the Samba server on another computer in order to open access computer’s file and other resources.
