you can buy any NAS storage depends on your data size,
i would like to suggest the things keep in mind.

1. should have raid, so that data loss can be protected.
2. should have iSCSI thin provisioning, so that you can work on virtual machines.
3. should have Rsync functionality gives users great flexibility with remote backup capability, a flexible scheduler, and the stability.
4. Multimedia Support Like DLNA Media Server for Support uPnP AV streaming protocol, you can watch multimedia on DLNA supported products like ( mobile Phones, LED TV etc.)
5. Client OS Support       Windows,UNIX/Linux,Mac OS X , so that data sharing can be easy.

if you want to do something else you can share, so that we can discuss more about NAS.
