NAS devices were initially designed with business and enterprise users in mind, and back then, they were also more challenging to set up. Recent improvements in bandwidth and a subsequent increase in media consumption has been the catalyst for widespread market demand for more storage and security options, and furthermore, an easier set up process for our SOHO and even prosumer markets. People want access to their data remotely and in a secure manner, so choosing a personal vs. public cloud solution makes the most sense. There are plenty of NAS devices available in the market to suit your every need; you can opt for the more simple two-bay NAS or go for a higher end four-bay NAS .
Hardware you’ll need
1. 4 x WD Red hard drives (WD20EFRX)
The most important part of the setup is selecting the hard drive. For this configuration we will be using four WD Red 2 TB hard drives. Each drive is optimized for NAS devices and features NASware™ 2.0. These drives offer a wide range of capacities and consume less power and are cooler. Almost all NAS manufacturers support WD drives so you might as well give these drives your first preference.
