Setting up the Synology DS

I decided to reconfigure the Synology DS so it will fit my life and needs better.

I have added Moments for my own photo cloud storage; I also installed both the audio station app, the video station app, the media server and the iTunes server so I can share my music and movies from my NAS and my Mac Server. I have also installed the Note Station so I have the ability to take quick notes. As for my cloud service I have connected to my Google account and all of this is backed up to Amazon. All while using the firewall, DoS feature, and other recommended security settings on both my NAS and router with the recommend port forwarding for apps so I can access it from anywhere.

With all these apps and services on the NAS it is taxing it at times which means it is time to either decrease what I am using the NAS for or upgrade it.

Honestly it is time to upgrade it and I am looking at the Diskstation DS918+. I already have 4 2 TB hard drives that will work with it so all I need is the DiskStation. The DiskStation DS918+ will give me a device with a quad core CPU vs the single core CPU in the DiskStation DS213j I have.

For now the QuickConnect is working, but my goal is to eventually get a static ip and set the DS213j up as a small vpn and web server for my blog but that will be later next spring.
