I’m seeking opinions on a local network-available backup storage medium. All my machines would back up to this volume. I have a spare local machine running headless and I’m tempted to just plug in some external drives on a RAID 1 configuration, but should I get a NAS? Dunno.
@ashfurrow unraid. immagine something like ESXi or the like, but cheaper, easier to use, and more flexible. it lets you slap together many drives into a raid, and have dedicated parity drives, and all kinds of stuff.
