I ordered a NAS
Synology really do make great products. I bought an older two bay version 10 years ago, and it had a RAM slot for expanding memory. Also some nice people had written up a guide to keep running unsupported DSM builds by faking a newer model, so in the end I was running DSM 6 on a devices that lost update support after DSM 4. 👍 I'm now rocking a Xpenology based on Supermicro X10/Xeon and a CSE-825 chassi with 16TB drives. 😁
well, I thought that the NAS would be relevant longer than the Steam Deck - and that's basically the same xD
@twizzay In my case it's not about comparing options as I wanted something "plug & play" & with some built-in tools to facilitate my work quickly.
I use OMV at home installed on a RaspberryPi 3B and I'm happy with it. Why? Because I've had time to learn, a Synology NAS was an overkill solution and it's been a fun and useful project.
I usually recommend open source options, but I know they are not suitable for all scenarios.
BTW, NextCloud on a RPi? I should take a look on this project 🤔
