In the article, seven backup solutions are discussed, with the Synology DS209j being featured as one of the seven backup solutions.

While you can backup important files such as photos and music easily with the free data-backup program, Data Replicator 3, you can also share photos over the web, stream music using the iTunes® server, host your own website, share files between a Mac and PC, setup a home surveillance station, and access everything from a web browser when you are on vacation or in the office.
