What is the max storage of this unit? I think something based on a DS414 would be more useful for me. Now all my backups at work are disk-based (on a Synology Rackstation, actually), something like this with a couple more disks would be ideal for third-tier storage...
At the moment it is 2x 4TB drives so 8TB... depending on how you plan to configure it (typically a mirror arrangement will leave 4TB free).
It will soon support the 6TB drives recently released so you could opt for two of them to have 6TB free.
ioSafe does have a 5 drive unit coming to the UK soon. I'll check which Synology model that is based on.
Update: it will be the ioSafe 1513 so it is based on the DiskStation 1513+. Frustratingly though that is a generation behind the xxx4 range and possibly a rather extreme step up from the 214.
