This is a weird one. Beginning of this year Qnap made a choice to EOL my NAS-box. I posted about that at the time. Well, that happens. Its just that my current box works for me and all, I don't necessarily need a new one.
Without announcing anything, I got a firmware upgrade for it! Actually, I got two. Initially I assumed to be hallucinating or something. On a 2nd time I had to confirm my original blog post, that EOL really did happen.
I'm lost too. I have no clue what to get as a replacement.
Given my capacity requirement, I'm going to go for a 4-bay NAS and pack it full of 6 TiB or 8 TiB drives. As you can imagine, that's not going to be cheap, so, I'll be thinking for that a while. A long while.
