The CloudShell-2 for the ODROID-XU4 is an affordable DIY Network Attached Storage (NAS) Solution with RAID support. Like the original CloudShell, it includes a color LCD and IR receiver on the front, but adds support for USB Attached SCSI (UAS or UASP) and useful data storage technologies (RAID-0, RAID-1 and SPAN). It offers dual slots for 3.5” HDD/SSD drives. The CloudShell-2 also includes a USB 3.0 to SATA bridge (JMicron JMS561), which supports UAS and allows installation of a dual 3.5" SATA HDD/SDD storages.
