    500TB+ storage

    Hello, at my internship I'm supposed to look into and choose good possibilities for a big storage (70TB is already here and is not sufficient, so we're talking about 500TB and more). The options are generally there and I'm getting lost in them a little bit, but when it comes to a concrete...

    Remote file access on Synology NAS w/double-NAT & static IP

    I need to preface this by saying that I'm not a networking guy so please excuse some fumbling of terminology below. :wacky: I'll do my best to clarify anything that doesn't make sense. The environment I'm in is a shared workspace, kinda like WeWork but without any IT infrastructure or...

    NAS Noob Question: Synology DS218j add new storage pool

    Disclaimer: I know jack about an NAS. I bought a Synology DS218j so I could have an always-on network storage device to stream movie and TV show files without having my PC on 24-hours a day. The Western Digital white 10 TB drive in my DS218j is getting close to capacity, so I bought and added...

    Need Some NAS advice

    I've been looking at buying a NAS for a few weeks and I think I'm going to go with Synology (but I'm open to QNAP) Originally I thought of the TVS-882, but I've got concerns about drive and fan noise (80mm fans) from that unit. What I like about it is the slots dedicated for an SSD Cache...

    Synology or QNAP for Crashplan Pro?

    So I'd like to use a NAS that's under $500 (without HDD, I plan on puttting the 8TB reds in) that can work as a headless device to upload my archived projects/files onto my crashplan pro account. Looking for 2 bay but 4 would be preferable. Is there a device you guys would recommend? I'm open...

    Do I pick Synology DS151 deal or wait?

    I see there is a deal on newegg for Synology DS1517. Considering that I want to get a 4 or 5 bay NAS, how worth it is this deal? I'm still generally debating whether to use a single disk directly attached storage that i already have, or get a NAS. The benefits of NAS as i see it are RAID...
