the question that I have been asking myself is: how should I go about managing data in my Start-Up? Especially, when you are not part of a super prestigious incubator/accelerator program where the established enterprise takes care of that matter for you.
Therefore, I was wondering:
How do you guys who currently run, have run in the past or maybe even plan on starting a startup in the future, manage your data?
Are you using cloud solutions such as Amazon Web Services etc. ? As far as I know, many startups will use third party cloud solutions.
However, I have done some research on NAS (Network Attached Storage) Servers:
- You can share your data, access it from wherever you want, (just like a cloud but your data lays with you, not with a third party) and work on it together with your colleagues.
- You can save your data redundantly. You could even run an Active Directory on it, a VPN, Mail-Server and so much more
- With 4 TB storage (should be enough for at least a couple of years depending on the business model of course) it would cost around 460$. This is a One Time Payment as opposed to monthly payments with cloud solutions. 4TB open cloud gets very expensive.
- It is also scalable as you can just get a new Hard Drive when the time comes.
- The set up looks pretty straight forward when you look it up. There are companies like Qnap, WD, Synology. Synology to me looks the easiest to set up but maybe you have some suggestions.
So before I decide I would love to know what you guys think. What are you using? What are you paying atm maybe for cloud solutions etc.? What would you recommend to me?
Maybe I am wrong and AWS or other cloud solutions are the better options and a NAS Server would be good as Backup for the cloud?
Thank you so much in advance,
