Putting the hardware aside for the moment, whatever you put in place does not guarantee that you won't suffer data loss - you need a backup strategy not just a NAS.
Oh, and mirroring doesn't count as a backup strategy - if you accidentally delete a file or if a file becomes corrupt it will be deleted or become corrupted on the mirror as well.
i agree most whole hartedly
OK, so I might be beating down the wrong path with SSDs.
I'd spent a long time working on storage systems in days gone by. Figured that the latest would be the greatest.
Might keep it simple for now and get a 4 bay "something" with a few mechanical drives. At least I will be able to do a rebuild should one die.
Thanks for all of your opinions and insights, I really appreciate them.
good idea.any raid that uses mirroring or spanning is pointless with ssds
