NAS for Co-Worker

Does it have to be rackmount? If so, I'd get a shelf and put something like a DS218+ or DS418+ on it.

 

As you can see from the following link:

https://nascompares.com/2017/12/20/ds218-nas-transcode-4k-and-1080p-performance-test-featuring-h-264-and-h-265/

 

It should handle 2-3 4K streams so regular 1080p content won't be an issue in h264 format. And they're reasonably cheap :)

Hello everyone!

 

So my Co-worker built a house and asked me if I could help him with Networking (hardware and software).

 

He wants a NAS for media streaming with a maximum of 4 or 5 Clients (TV / Phone / PC, NB).

 

I built my own NAS, but I am not that confident to build him a custom one.

 

So I am searching for a reliable, good, but also good price/performance, 2 or 4 bay Rackmount NAS. 

So far I was thinking about "NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN3138-100NES".

 

Do you have any suggestions??

 

Thank you very much in advance!
