NAS units today are just not NAS units at least the Synology ones are not, they are very capable server units which actually serve small to medium offices for the same things a regular server can do. Its all based on the software and Synology is the leader in it ,one Huge advantage are the licensing frees paid yearly for regular servers, synology does not have that. Ive deployed many in the business environment and they work nonstop with very very little problems
