What's a good way to back up my network and also use it as a media server?

Episode 1154 (1:55:22)

Jonathan from Los Angeles, CA
Synology DS414 Slim

Jonathan would like a backup system that will backup through his router, and he'd like it to double as a media server. Leo says that's called network attached storage. It hooks into the router, is visible on the network as a drive, and it can be used as a backup. Many NAS systems will run media servers so they act like a jukebox for music, video, etc.

Leo likes Synology. The DS414 Slim is a good place to start. Leo also says that ReadyNAS is another good option that he uses at home. He can also use his iPad and iPhone as an AirPlay device with it.
