Data Privacy & Protection Day aka Data Protection Day international holiday that occurs every 28 January. Holiday? No one told me! The idea of Data Privacy Day is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. Apparently it’s worshipped by nearly 50 countries around the world. They are respecting such topics as anti-phishing and cyber-security. It’s targeted at everyone. From B2B, B2C and even families at home.
I recently purchased another Synology NAS box and to populate it I ripped out the disks from 1 of the 2 Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 4s I have. This then freed up the ReadyNAS I was thinking what to do with it. I remembered a blog article from a few years back about running Synology DSM on a ReadyNAS so I started to do some digging. I switched to Synology for its VMware vStorage VAAI support which the ReadyNAS didn’t have. The blog was by Migoo, but I knew it was some years old that I had to take his basic principal and update it. The hack is to use Xpenology to create a bootable USB disk, boot your ReadyNAS from USB and install Synology DSM on the ReadyNAS.
