The Cloud doesn't have to be a nebulous space in the stratosphere, you can have one in your own home. Sure, there's usually a steep initial price tag and configuration learning curve for most people, but Synology's BeyondCloud lineup helps bypass that. Hosting your own network-attached storage (NAS) is now more approachable and affordable with the BeyondCloud's pre-packaged and -configured drives. You'll have secure access to your files from anywhere with a data connection, so you can store, stream and share your digital stuff without having to pay Cloud storage fees again. Sizes range from single-bay 2TB models to two-bays of 3TB mirrored drives with RAID protection in case one ever fails. And that's what's on the giveaway floor today: one Synology BeyondCloud Mirror (BC214se 2300) will go to a lucky Engadget this week, so they can take control of all their data. Just head on down to the Rafflecopter widget for up to three chances at winning this next generation of streamlined NAS systems from Synology.
Winner: congratulations Eddie D. of Minneapolis, MN.
