I am not sure if this is the right forum but i wasn’t sure where to post my question; if this is not the right place please point me in the right direction and I’ll move the post.
This is my current situation: 3 Ubuntu desktops, 1 CentOS desktop, 2 Win 10 desktops.
The idea is to expand to: 15 ubuntu desktops, 1 CentOS, 2 Win 10 Desktops, 1 Surveillance system with eight 4k cameras, a NAS (mainly to access/store doc files and play some 4k videos).
I was curious if there is a NAS that is able to handle comfortably the access to the files (let’s say max 5 at times and mainly docs/pdf) while ensuring no lagging in the 4K buffering (videos are MKV, MPEG, QT, DIVx and some 4k).
I have been looking around and it seems that QNAP and Synology seem to be the best options. The least configuration the better. I am hoping to stay within $3500.
