storage01 is a simple NAS device. It serves files from /srv/nfs and uses lvmcache to speed up load times for commonly accessed files. lvmcache is built upon dm-cache, and it's important to note that the benefits of caching are only reaped for files that are accessed multiple times (see here).

- I want to convert storage01 into a dedicated backup device (rather than a crappy NAS with no RAID) that regularly syncs down all of my Google Drive, emails, and other bits of data that exist non-locally.
- I also want to install rsnapshot on my laptop to regularly sync my personal photo/home video collection (consisting of digitized VHS tapes, DAT tapes, etc) to this backup device. Why don't I just back these up to the cloud? Well, a) they take up a huge amount of space (the digitized DAT tapes I have are all encoded as FLAC files) and b) I'm reluctant to entrust my home / personal videos to a third-party provider.
- I think it would make sense to install rsnapshot on the backup device as well and have it regularly take "snapshots" of my Google Drive / emails.
