Not everybody wants to work with the cloud, a few of my customers ask to avoid it specifically in their contracts given the confidential nature of their software.

I work for my customers since 1998, they are happy with what they get from me (which is an excellent service as they deserve).

My customers have a weekly copy of their software (or in the worst case at the end of the project, because they decide to go this way). Copy #1.
I have a NAS at the office (multiple disks with RAID 10). Copy #2.
All is inside my laptop (of course fully encrypted). Copy #3.
And of course, the backups are rotating monthly in different places. Copy #4 (which in fact is #4 and #5 as I rotate the building where those backups are placed every month).

When I said I didn't know how to do it, I meant, I don't know how to send multiple GB of data daily to the cloud, just because it would not be enough time to send all that every single night.
I can do incremental backups and... yes... maybe being older gives me the experience of having an incremental backup unusable because one of the tapes decided to fail, making it impossible to recover something. So no, thanks.

If all my customers, my NAS my laptop, and the external location where the rotated HDD lays burns at the same time (or get a super-massive power surge), maybe we would be facing the WWIII and then I would not really be worried for that except to spend time with my wonderful wife (maybe in the cloud already / the real one).

Hope it is clearer now, but in any case, I wanted help to choose a server... which maybe it won't be needed after all as it seems Odoo could work even in my NAS, let's cross fingers and hope this will work.

Thanks for your post Bruno.
