I could rock a PLEX server as well as finally start backing up my computers properly!
I've been thinking about this one for a while. Perfect for an entry level integrated digital media server with Plex functionality and other installable apps such as Torrent client, backup service and remote access.
One can never have too much storage, have to have somewhere to put all my photos of my Daughter!
With my wife being pregnant with our first baby, the Thecus N2310 will really help us store all the baby photos for the future and be able to stream videos for those late night feeds!
I would use it as a GIT network storage device for some of my embedded Linux code.
It'll get me one step closer to electricity independence, by reducing running cost s down to a point I can go off grid.
I have a home lab setup with only one internal drive hard drive, right now I'm running six virtual servers on ESXI and the latency is terrible because I'm using the one hard disk.
If I had the Thecus N2310 I could make it an iSCSI target and host my Virtual hard disks on the NAS. I could also store my VEEAM backups on the NAS which means the internal hard disk in the server could be swapped to an SSD to just run ESXI. That way I'd have much better performance and I could have a RAID 1 config on the Thecus to ensure data integrity in the event of a hard disk failure!
I would set it up in my garage to backup the more important files on my desktop/server (photos of loved ones, irreplaceable files etc...) It would probably live in my small 6U network rack in the garage (I like to keep things neat and tidy!)
I would use it as an energy efficient torrent server and network storage solution.
It would replace the defacto raid array in my main PC allowing me to cut down on my main PC power usage also
This thing would make an awesome a file storing, door stopping door stopperer.
I would use a Thecus NAS as a backup target for my home network and as a shared storage device for my test virtualisation environment.
I would use it as a portable NAS that I could backup and save directly from my camera to storage. Would give the ability to do some mega long time-lapse photos sequences
to be honest: Porn.
my comment was inappropriate and not funny (especially since so many followed with the exact thing), i apologise.
This would be great to store my backups on. Nice and fast. No more hours of installs after a hard drive failure!
I will use the NAS as capability as a backup for all my important and personal data.... with awesome redundancy.
Perfect device to keep all my photo's safe!
I would use it to store my wifes ever-growing photo collection from our world travels and life in general anndd maybe a movie or two
I'd use it to store the plans of the Death Star, because storing such plans on protocol droids is risky business!
With a Thecus our household would finally have a reliable, easy to configure storage location for all our important data, something that is currently missing.
A thecus nas would allow me to store my abundant amount of media/video editing raws.
