Ask Different is a question and answer site for power users of Apple hardware and software. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a 4-bay NAS with AFP/TimeMachine support and the ability for me to install s3cmd (a utility for simple S3 syncing).

The reason I ask is simple: just having a back up at home isn't good enough. I've used Dropbox for a while now but since we've got a number of machines my ultimate aim is to back them up to a NAS and for that NAS to sync with S3 a few times a day so we'd have a remote version.

Hardware shopping questions are off topic. If you wanted to edit this to be about how to evaluate any NAS for compatibility with s3cmd at might be fine to reopen. –  bmike Apr 21 '13 at 11:50

Synology has a few solutions. Their products are reliable and affordable.

There are multiple applications you can install in a few clicks but for S3 backups you will have to go the manual way.

I second this advice. I have one (single bay) and I'm very happy with it. I also backup offsite on S3 but manually. –  LudoMC Dec 18 '11 at 19:43
