Hanselminutes Podcast 265 - Synology Network Attached Storage and Windows Home Server with Travis Illig
I chat with fellow home storage enthusiast Travis Illig about NAS options (Network Attached Storage) available today. Both Travis and I purchased (and told our friends about) Windows Home Servers. Where are our Home Servers now, and what are they using going forward?
We talk about my recent purchase of a Synology DS1511 Home Storage System and what we're doing with our Home Servers now. We also talk about the recent removal of the Drive Extender technology from WHS and our feelings on the issue.
