How to replicate NAS4Free to another device


Post by mkhawaja » 29 Dec 2016 17:50

I want to use NAS4Free instead of Synology NAS units. I am using Veeam and with Synology, I could replicate the data on the NAS to another unit. Is this possible using NAS4Free where I could replicate my backups to an external location/device.

Veeam is propietary software.
You can use RSync to do the same. And is included by default on N4F.

Please read about RSync (revision 6766)+OBI on SUPERMICRO X8SIL-F 8GB of ECC RAM, 12x3TB disk in 3 vdev in RaidZ1 = 32TB Raw size only 22TB usable

Agree on Rsync.

Quite useful

HP ML10v2 x64-embedded on Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4150 CPU @ 3.50GHz

Extra memory so I can host a couple VMs
1) Unifi Controller on Ubuntu
2) Librenms on Ubuntu
