In this age of the Internet of Things and an increase of bring your own devices (BYOD), tech savvy small business and home owners are now realizing the need for reliable and organized networking and storage capabilities. 

An increasing number of people are now converting spare closets and extra rooms in their homes or small offices to fully geared IT rooms and data centers.
