One word of caution: drives fail, and when they fail in a NAS, the replacement drive has to be synced for the storage to be consistent. On modern drive sizes, this takes a very long time (days even) and increases the risk of another drive in the array failing. Therefore, I would strongly recommending picking a n+2 model. In traditional raid that's a 3-way mirror (RAID-1), or a RAID6, in ZFS parlance it's a 3-way mirror or raidz2.

Does anyone use a personal cloud? Which brand would you recommend? What alternatives are there to cloud?
I'm not keen on portable storage drives. Ever since a mishap with one a few years ago (I lost ALL my Flight Simulator files and data) and another instance where it was stolen in college, I'd rather not go down that route anymore. They're also not configured for Mac/Windows, meaning that if you format it for Windows you need add-ons to use it for Mac.
Would prefer a personal cloud I can set up at home, but if you make a convincing case for an online company, by all means go ahead.
