do I need a Raspberry Pi? or a NAS? …

  • low power
  • fanless / self-cooling
  • SSH shell access (?!?)
  • file access through SMB, rsync, SFTP
  • user accounts
  • sudo is not for everybody
Requirements regarding big external disks:
  • (I want them)
  • RAID-1 (mirroring) (highly desired, going to be a must)
  • automatic powering down those disks after a timeout period is a must, and of course powering up on demand as well
  • encryption
FRITZ!Box disadvantages:
  • the external disk is not encrypted.

(To be continued.)
