Recently, I decided to buy a Synology NAS to backup my files and coding projects. The Synology NAS runs a GNU/Linux distro and has a very user friendly web portal to configure your folders and users. However, you can do much more with this NAS. Synology provides various apps which you can install, for example drupal, mariadb and java manager. With the Synology NAS web portal, you can select and install these apps and will be installed in the @appstore folder. In my opinion, the Synology NAS is very user friendly and works perfectly in a Windows or Mac environment.
