Ok, so we’ve been looking at and for a multi-computer backup system. We need a system that can support 4-5 computers and, ideally, 6 iOS devices (4 phones, 2 iPads).
We’ve looked at cloud based backup, but it’s unreasonable where we live. Not the cost, the access. On our best day, we get 4-7mbps down and .25 up. The down is slowish, but uploading… FML FFS. I can’t pay for a higher upload speed, apparently, so unless we move (highly unlikely) we are stuck with it.
So I’ve been looking at Drobo and Synology and it seems that Synology might take the cake. Anyone here found ways to back up their iOS devices to Synology? It seems I can backup photos, no problem. If photos are taken care of, we can probably do iCloud (or whatever it is being called now) for other data.
Second, with wifi transfers at home, can I easily set up a device to device network (probably not the right name) so that our iOS devices aren’t facing upload limitations when syncing data while at home?
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
