Synology Photos is a free Google Photos clone, but you’ll need hardware to host it
With Google Photos discontinuing free unlimited photo backups starting next week, we’ve been taking a look at the various alternatives available on the market to replace the service. Both options we’ve looked at so far — Amazon Photos and Microsoft OneDrive — are cloud-based lockers, so today we’re going to take another approach and check out a local storage alternative. Synology, the maker of the famous home NAS servers, has been testing its own photos management library for a while and in my experience, it’s as close to Google Photos as you could ever get.
