I'm just using it at home for my personal use, and I use it primarily for transferring large video files between temporarily storing large video files between computers. I also use it as a backup for my photographs and videos, and things like that, as well as some important documents.

We are using FreeNAS as a network storage solution, which acts a repository for our data. We have a large amount of data being stored.

Our primary use case of this solution is for storage of our research; for privacy.
