Rsync-Enabled NAS Hardware Compatibility List
Source: Cortex IT Labs
This paper will outline the setup of four NAS devices that will provide BackupAssist with an Rsync data host. The data host will be configured so BackupAssist for Rsync can connect and upload the data via either an Rsync daemon or Rsync via an SSH tunnel to the NAS device. For the purposes of a turnkey Internet backup solution, the strongly recommend the QNAP for two reasons: first, it is the only one that supports secure Rsync - that is, running Rsync over SSH (the same encryption technology as https); and second, it is very easy to setup and configure, whereas other devices require more effort.
