Disk Station DS207+

Evaluate this unit with Techware Labs:

So, what is there about the DS207+ that made the staff of TWL speechless? How about RAID for data redundancy, dynamic web hosting with Apache, MySQL and PHP built-in, also Windows ACS compatible for data security, power consumption at ~8cents a day to name a few? Also since the device is a Linux based kernel, there are no Windows OS patches that need to be applied every month. The DS207+ has only one very quiet fan that is used to move air accross the two SATA drives and that is it. With this low amount noise and heat output, you don't need to worry about setting up an isolated cold room for this device.

I've got one of the DS207+ predecessors (DS101G+), and it works very well indeed. Synology have continued to improve the firmware on the device over the years, even though they've stopped producing the unit!

This is one heck of a capable product, almost a Web site in a very small box!

Well, it uses Apache, PHP and MySQL, which are the baseline for most dynamic data driven sites. I reckon it could run software like vBulletin fairly happily, although I don't know how many users it could support at the same time.
