I would like to build a small home server where can I access my files from everywhere including some personal web apps and my svn/git repos.

The problem is that I really don't have much space for a full computer tower, and I wonder if there is any Network Attach Storage (NAS) device I can use and install Ubuntu server on it.

I don't need much hd space (500gb should be enough) and it should have the least energy consumption possible. Wake on Lan feature would be nice.

Any suggestions?


If physical space is your problem, you can get a mini PC (plenty of those around). But for your needs, almost any NAS will do. You don't need to install Ubuntu. Almost all of them (I have a D-Link 323) allow web access.
