    Question DiskStation DS118 Good Choice For Offsite Backup?

    Adding offsite backup to our setup (will sit in my office at home across town). Would using a DS118 with a single drive be ok? Am I shooting myself in the foot here? Plan to have one other onsite backup on an external drive hooked directly into our primary Synology. Thanks!
