is XPEnology stable enough to use in production?

Recommended Posts

I have a DS212J that I'm using to store important data. Recently I purchase a ReadyNAS 4200 V2 which I really like the hardware but hate Frontview.

 

I plan on installing DSM on the ReadyNAS and get rid of the DS212J so I only need to have one NAS.

 

Going to have 4 2TB drives and 2 1TB drives in the unit for now.

 

Need to store important family photos to it that will be backing up to a remote drive on my server and another backup to Carbonite

 

Will also have lots of movies on this for Plex and streaming.

 

Can I trust DSM on the readynas for everyday use especially for the important data. I want to be able to get everything configured and forget.

I'm a happy user since more than a year. It's pretty awesome and working.

Try to keep it updated and you'll have no issues.

Just keep in mind that this is not a real Synology product/device.

Since 5.0-4482 Syno add a new protection and for now no one have "break" it. (4482 and 4493 build nanoboot/gnoboot use old files from 4458)

 

With recent security issues and SynoLocker I will say that XPEnology is not stable for production.

You can use it at home,for pictures, streaming movies but backup your important data on a real Syno / NAS.

thanks that's good to know. I started to move a couple drives to the "RISKSTATION" this morning but I think I'll put frontview back and live with it. :sad:

Trantor, but your beta7(8) based on 4.3 3827 seems to be secure.

It can be updated to Update2 or higher.
