Network Hard Drives With Extra Cloud Goodness

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Articles & Resources" @ 09:00 PM

"It has long been a dream of mine to connect a hard drive at home to the Internet. This dream, of late, has been deferred by the rise of cloud services like SugarSync and Dropbox but two hard drive manufacturers, Buffalo and Iomega, have come out with compelling devices that seem to finally allow home and home office users to get the benefits of cloud hosting with the safety of complete control over your data."

Having network-attached storage for your data is a good thing. Having that data be easily accessible to the outside world, as long as it's done securely, it's a great thing. It's extremely handy to be able to grab files from anywhere in the world, as long as said files aren't too big and your upstream Internet connection at home isn't too slow. I don't use the remote file transfer feature on my Windows Home Server too often, but when I need it, it's a life saver!

"Having used a number of these digital media storage systems over the past several years I have had to go through the buying process; working through my own requirements, researching and evaluating the options in the market, and finally selecting the right system for my usage. In an attempt to make your purchase decision easier I wanted to share some thoughts on how to select the right product for your environment."

If you're thinking about buying a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device, it's not something you want to purchase blindly - you'll want to make sure it has all the features you'll need. The author of this article points out 13 different factors that you should consider before making a purchase. Some of them can be easily dismissed - who cares what it looks like if it's going to be in a back room? - but others, such as the device's capability to back up your systems, should be given careful consideration.
