I’m looking for advice on linux-friendly options for home network storage.
The purpose/requirements would be to:
Backup selected data (For example: current work projects)
Share administrative documents within the household, from PCs/ mobile
Not consume too much power, transfer data fast (On Gb network)
- “WD My Cloud Home 2TB” - might work - but these consumer brands typically do not provide software for Linux?
- A Raspberry Pi with large hard drive attached and suitable software?
- A device (Pi?) that can host NextCloud?
If you’d like an SBC with a M.2 slot there’s a list here:
NextCloud will fit that bill pretty well if you want something easy to administer.
