I've tried to find the answer on Google but can't really find anything specific that is in layman terms (if I see the word RAID again.... )
I'm trying to find out the practical differences (and similarities) between using NAS box or a home server (e.g. Windows Home Server) to centrally store and access files and media.
I was thinking of...
- Something that can always be there to store files so for instance when you upgrade PC you don't have to worry about copying all your music and photos back as they are already stored.
- Something that all the computers in the house can connect to.
- Something that can be accessed remotely so you can use any file with a computer regardless of if you are in your home network or not.
- Potentially could be connected to other devices such as a TV or PS3 although this isn't essential.
The items I have been viewing which all seem to do the same but I don't know which is best...(some links are to British websites as I live in London)
If you could provide some information on which is best plus if you could explain how each work that would be very helpful as I like to understand how things work
Cheers and sorry if this is not the correct forum!
