This network-attached file server offers a solid array of features and is easy to install and configure.
With so many cloud storage options readily available, some folks might question the value of having a home NAS (network-attached storage) server. After all, with your files on the cloud, you don't have to worry about managing the maintenance, updates, and security of your own server.
But that's not entirely true, is it? You have a home network, so you've got to pay at least some attention to that network's health and security. Assuming you're already keeping on top of that, then a home NAS really isn't adding that much additional hassle. And there are all kinds of benefits to gain from that minor amount of work.
