Some of you may have seen/hard of Western Digital's MyCloud NAS solution for home networks. This comes with a proprietary app suite for mobile devices and workstations alike. This allows the consumer a "dropbox"-like experience with a storage medium they themselves privately own and operate.
I've been toying with this idea, simply to get around the storage limitations hosted solutions impose at which point you'd start paying subscription fees. Not to mention the ability to take responsibility for my own security and off the hands of a third party.
But given that this device is intended to be accessed from the Internet, would it make sense to design and implement a DMZ-based home network for additional protection?
How would you securely store/access your data in this way?
Of course, assume the drive is encrypted, or at least, storing Truecrypt-protected volumes.
