Replacement for Synology?


Recommended Posts

I bought a Synology DS411j about 6 months ago. It is a brilliant bit of kit however I now realise that I wan't it to do more than I originally thought I did! Now I am considering replacing this with the HP microserver...since it is soo cheap at the moment.


I like the hybrid RAID features of the Synology - i.e. I can switch disks around without having really to think about it. Adding bigger disks is really easy!

What software based RAID solutions could I run to do this?


At the moment I am running


- Transmission

- Crashplan


And I would like to be able to run Squeezebox server....which my Synology doesn't have enough resources to allow.


Are there any distro's that I could look to offer a comparable list of services / RAID solution? Or is there similar software available on Windows?


Any advise would be great!
