I had a feeling that it’s time to replace my old Synology with something bigger and more capable. I basically knew what I need from my NAS and same time I wanted to build it myself. Besides the fact that it’s great fun to do something like that, I did it in one-third of what I would pay for a ready-to-go solution. I had experience from my previous projects so I was able to bring something perfectly suited to my needs that will serve well for another four years.
I am a DevOps engineer
