Decentralized Storage – the way to go – NAS

This will be one of my next steps. Get rid of the storage drives in the Computer Cases and put them into a NAS Storage solution like Asustor 604 or Synology 414/415. But to be honest, if you’re going for a decentralized storage you should really be in a situation, where you need it and […]
