My Synology Gear

This is my Synology gear:

At the moment I own two synologies, but I am planing to buy a third very soon.

Synology DS713+:

Synology DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage DS713+

and my backup unit is a Synology DS216+:

Synology DS216+II NAS DiskStation, Diskless

For Hard drives, I use Western Digital 3TB Red NAS and I have 5, 2 for each NAS and a spare in case a hard drive goes down.

Love this disks, In my 713+ NAS I have had them for 10+ years and no failures yet.

It is important that you choose the RED CAVIAR NAS as the disks will be running 24/7 if you are powering a website from your NAS.

You can also buy the NAS as a bundle (NAS and disks). In this case, make sure you buy it with the red caviar drives on it. You wont regret it!

I also have the Synology router which makes managing your network and configuring your VPN painless and easy:
