Harddisk with Ethernet-Connector


No NAS-Box, with a extra casing or electronics.
A drive with everthing on it (RJ45-connector) which I can directly connect to a switch.

Does anyone know, where I can get more information about this?
I read about it in the news section of a IT magazin, about 3 years ago.

Is this HGST project still alive?

Thank you!


A hard drive attached to a network, by definition, is a NAS. (NAS = Network-Attached Storage).
