Private NAS vs The Cloud!

There are many benefits of using Cloud storage as many may know. It is an efficient and convenient way of being able to access all of your files from any computer or mobile device whenever you may need them.

But what if you want your own private cloud storage that only You have access too? The answer to that question is Network Attached Storage (NAS).

What Exactly can NAS offer you over the most commonly used Cloud storage solutions out there e.g., DropBox, GoogleDrive and OneDrive ect...

Price comparison Synology NAS vs The Cloud!

Lets consider that Google offers 15GB free, clearly a NAS will never pay off if the 15GB storage servers your needs, but as your needs increase the pay off period will start to fall. When you start to overflow into 400GB+ a NAS becomes extremely feasible. 

for the purpose of this blog we will be doing a comparison of Googles 10GB package and our 12GB Standard NAS (12GB due to not having 10GB option)

Conclusion

Overall a Synology NAS looks very appealing, it does what the most commonly used Cloud services can do, and much more, best of all it is private, meaning that you and only you have access to that device, no shared storage between multiple companies or people.

If you find yourself never using Googles 15GB of free storage, then a Synology NAS is most likely not for you, although it does offer some additional features that are worth considering even if you find yourself not wanting to use it for Storage.

If you find yourself looking into Googles upgrade packages it might be worth looking into alternate methods of online storage, such as your own private NAS hosted in a secure Datacentre.
