Synology DiskStation DS418j 4-Bay NAS Server No Disks Plex Pyhton iTunes VMM
This is the perfect starter NAS box. Inexpensive & user-friendly, running the acclaimed DSM OS, it can be a flexible server running many apps & services for you & your family & friends to consume & enjoy on YOUR network. 4-bays, so room to expand if you don't start with 4 high-Terabyte sized drives. You even can start with a single drive and get the benefits of the DiskStation platform. You can even start using only a single disk. Or a few different sized disks, if you have some laying around. JBOD (literally Just a Bunch Of Disks) is a mode for multiple disks of different capacities, even physical sizes (2.5" or 3.5"). You can start mirroring with 2 drives, striping for increased performance with 2+ disks, striping with parity for fault tolerance with 3+ disks, etc. Lots of options whether you're looking for speed, fault tolerance or both. You could have 3 disks in a RAID 5 array with the 4th setup as a hot-spare. If a single drive fails, it will be auto-magically replaced by the hot spare with no data loss. Just time to rebuild the parity data on that one drive. Eventually you're going to have to shut it down and pull out the bad drive, but not when time is critical. You can wait until a convenient time. That is HUGE if it's critical to keep running! These Synology DiskStations go beyond backup & storage solutions to become media servers whether it's Plex for your favorite movies/ TV shows, or iTunes for your music collection. Host your own web-services, etc. Synology is regarded as one of the best, if not THE best brand in consumer & business NAS today. Their software & tightly integrated systems are at another level compared to most offerings by the traditional disk & network brands Buffalo, WD, Netgear, etc. Their platform, DSM (Disk Suite Manager) is much more user-friendly& advanced than the other options available. There are tons of free packages available to install.
Some do require licensing, but usually only for higher tier capabilities. If you use multiple computers, tablets, phones, Smart TVs, game consoles & media devices, and/or have multiple people streaming audio & video, playing games or just accessing data on your network, you NEED to upgrade to having your storage accessible on the network, available to all your devices simultaneously. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it! There truly is NO GOING BACK to.
The dark ages of copying to and from individual machines, constantly deciding what to delete to free up some precious space. I know I can never go back. This listing includes the DS418j. NAS server itself, with 4 drive trays, power brick, drive tray screws for both.
3.5" & 2.5" drives. Network cable, manual & IEC power cord. It's ready to go! Just BYOD (Bring Your Own Disks).
I can provide some sources. Feel free to message me if you need those recommendations or any other info.
