Here is a quick overview of the NAS systems/technology I use today and what I have used in the past. Some NAS systems don’t have all the features you want but today it’s becoming easier to make them do it with a few configurations. Overall, NAS technology has grown over the years and it’s blurred the lines in what we use to think of individual systems now bundled up into single devices.

Very Informative Episode!

Really enjoyed your episode on the various NAS options. Lots of detail on all the options available as well as the historical options like Drobo and such. And even though I'm not much of a Windows user except for work, I'm glad you provided some solutions for Windows users who do listen to HPR. Would have also liked to hear some options for macOS users too!
