I have a relatively small home network and host quite a few lan parties. I feel the need to have a proper NAS solution setup.
I want to centralize backups instead of using external drives. I also want the ability to have a centralized network share.
It seems that both products would suite my basic needs well.
I think addons and other features are quite interesting, and would love to play with them. I would like the ability to run a http server so I can drag and drop a file to a folder and quickly link a friend a file that I want them to view.
Major factors that are leading me to Windows Home Server is its ease of extending storage. If my share fills up, I can simply add a drive and I have more room. With FreeNAS, I am not sure what I'd do. Reorganize my files?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
