Any recommendations? Experiences?
(Macmini + USB3 External Hard-drive) x2 into different geo locations with rsync over IPSec tunnel.

Why?
- external hard drive is easy to replace
- macmini could be replaced with anything similar (without tying you to NAS software)
- support for afp/smb/ftp/ssh/rsync/you-name-it
- very low real world power consumption
- if you do not like macos you can run linux on it too
