Hey All,

It's funny how similar topics pop-up (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1380894)

We are currently running 10 computers on a wifi (small file users) and ethernet (large file users) network to a Mac Mini Server. We've really liked it an it's worked out fine. I also set it up so we could access it from home which has been great for the last minute things.

The main issue is that we're running out of space, and quickly. So what next? Based on the other threads I was looking at the Synology NAS line but would that still work with the Mac Mini's admin / login required thing? Or would it show up as it's own unit and then we would lose the remote login?

The biggest concern for us is making sure we are backing up and taking it off site. What is the best way to achieve this now that we've reached this bottleneck?

Thanks for any help and if you have any questions let me know.
