- We wanted to implement NAS device in our network
- we have around 300GB of data
- I want to setup the NAS device in our office for file storage and user access
  and at the same time setup similar NAS in my home.  So they both can sync
  automatically over night.

 May be the initial setup of NAS with 300GB , we can sync or copy them over LAN
 and then use some kind of built-in or some software so they automatically Sync over night
  every day.  Both locations have good internet bandwidth ( 20 MB download/upload)

Need recommendations on some good NAS devices which does this Job.

    QNAP NAS devices have a built-in remote backup (sync) function.  I am not sure about the smaller devices so verify they have the feature.

    The problem is that only the bigger devices have this kind of stuff built in as it requires basically a computer to be built in. So for 300gb it's hard to find one with features.
