Could someone recommend a NAS that's best for my situation? Never had one before so looking for advice.
I'm looking for a NAS for my home, all devices in the house are Linux or Android, no Windows or Mac at all and there never will be.
I want a NAS so that I can rsync the drives in my PC to it via chron as a backup but also so that I can access something via another device occasionally without having to switch the PC on. It's just for downloads so nothing too important, they won't change much and they're not important enough to get a more thorough (and expensive) solution.
I'm looking for something with 4tb or more of space. Storage capacity is more important to me than speed. One bay is fine, two would be a bonus for expansion.
Since the files will also be stored on my PC and I don't care enough to have them mirrored real-time, I don't really need RAID mirroring. In a way I'd prefer not to use RAID as I'd rather have something that in the worst case I can just pop into a PC and access the files.
I need rsync support. SSH/SFTP and NFS would be good. Don't really care about DLNA and streaming stuff and don't want to use samba/windows shares.
Any recommendations? Would I be better off just using a pi with an external disk attached to it?
