Re: Setting up home server and network

This went ming-mong very quickly.

A NAS is a storage device. Any storage device can be part of a backup strategy. I have two Synology devices in two countries that sync with each other (I have 4 of the things in total). I also have a Windows server that leverages O365 and OneDrive to back up into the Cloud too.

The NAS device provide me with a backup as they sync the important content between each other.

One last thing to consider is if ransomware hits you and encrypts your files. Offline backups (say to disk) are a nice safety net there (or drive a sync between NAS devices on demand, for example).

You can also do this amongst friends if you're so inclined; I used to use CrashPlan when it had a free tier to backup in a circle of friends/family.
