I recently bought a Synology NAS (DS214se) to store privates files in my network and not “in the cloud”. I prefered that to the cloud to have 2TB storage space, more security (local network & RAID replication) and sharing possibilities better than a classical external disc.
For now, I’m really happy of that NAS even if I did not try other systems before. The initialiaztion is fast and the first configuration is really easy. Then, comes the ACLs management which is quite easy to use (if you understand ACLs concepts). Lot of interesting features can be added to that NAS with an applications/packets manager (music, video, security, git etc..)
I would like to talk about the Git server package that you can install on the NAS and give you the commands and minimum explanation to know how to set up your first git repository on your Synology NAS.
Up to now I was using Putty + WinSCP when it comes to connect and copy file from/to servers. Not really convenient to use 2 softwares and I have to say that Putty is not really user friendly (but is simple and it works) . I tried to use PuttyManager but lots of display bugs and weird behaviour made me stop using it.
