I was originally looking into a NAS, but after a bit in that thread(http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/nas-for-home-office.1903775/) I'm leaning more towards a Mac Mini server. It will be used to share and archive files within my home based business. There are two of us that live and work together. All Apple devices. We are a web development studio so will mostly be for Photoshop and Microsoft Office files. RAID for redundancy is required. I have a few questions: We need to access the server from outside the house. How easy is this to set up? Most set-ups I've seen like this use a static IP address, I can't get that from my ISP but do have a Dynamic DNS, will that work? Like I mentioned above, RAID(or possibly another type of data redundancy) is a requirement. I'm looking into a few options for external RAID drives: WD, OWC, G-Technology. Any recommendations on those? Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, or Firewire 800?
