Last year, I picked up a Synology Diskstation DS412+. This is a great little NAS. It’s affordable, consisting of basically just a backplane and a chassis. You supply your own hard drives. I bought it because I needed a local server that could stream media to a Roku and it fit the bill perfectly. One of the cool side benefits is that this model supports NFS, iSCSI and VAAI primitives, so it will make a nifty target for my VMware lab. I’ll talk about all that in a later post. In this one, I want to talk about dynamic DNS.
