My past conundrum is that there is such a premium on NAS hardware, with no reasonable desktop (not rack mount) solutions with say 8 cores, 64GB of RAM and lots of SSD. I have long wanted to build my own, except configuring a good software solution (and maintaining it for years to come) is a lot of work, especially when security patches need to be installed on all of the individual components (like Plex, ownCloud, Calibre, Zoneminder, and so on). Most of the software is one click away from updates with Synology. Along comes QuTScloud. Now I can supposedly build a NAS (as described above), run Ubuntu as the OS with Virtualbox and install a supported and licensed version of QuTS. This would be the best of both worlds. Questions: 1. Any rumblings about Synology doing the same thing with DSM? 2. Any plans on doing a review of QuTScloud on generic hardware? I bought a license and am testing now, but I would like an experts viewpoint.
No answers for that question.
