Following a disk failure and the lamentable failure of my backup strategy I am thinking of investing in a NAS box on which to store regular backups of my Fedora17 home server and Fedora16 desktop PC.
I'm not big into music streaming and such like, but I might have a think about that out of curiousity.
The main requirements are that it is quiet (24/7 working), reliable (24/7 working) and able to be used effortlesly with Linux but also with a couple of Windows machines used by less enlightened members of the household.
This is a home setup and, with a fearsome wife who does not understand the attraction of shiny toys-for-boys and so the number one requirement is COST!
I am thinking about this one
with a 2Tb drive. What do others think?
I would be very grateful for any helpful advice / suggestions...
