I'm in the market for a home backup/media storage. The main use case is storing backups of my Ubuntu laptop. The most important feature is the absence of required maintenance. Would be also nice if it could stream video (right now I'm running Plex on my laptop).

Any suggestions? I heard nice things about Synology, but last time I checked it was expensive enough to give me second thoughts.

@isagalaev I don’t have much experience with home backups but @nextcloud comes to mind along with this Hacker News thread that may have some insight for you:

@nitrohorse @nextcloud no, I'm talking about a home backup server, not the cloud. That's going to be the next step, probably.
