• Should we build a NAS server with a single Gigabit NIC?

    My friend and I have been building our own home server that's going to be based off on Ubuntu with four different drives in RAID 10. It's going to be used for backup and NAS. But here's our big question: Should we build a NAS Server with a single Gigabit NIC? Thank you for your help.

  • Best RAID configuration for large NAS

    I'm in the midst of building a large NAS box but I'm not which drive configuration is the best option for me. I thought about using a Areca ARC controller and hanging all 24 drives off of it. My friend came up with the idea of mounting all of it as one volume (due to the amount of data). We would...

  • What’s the best RAID NAS configuration for my setup?

    I'm trying to build a NAS and I've figured out I can go two ways on doing this: Using a 1 24+ Port RAID controller that makes the whole array one single RAID 10 array Using 2 12+ Port RAID controllers making two separate RAID 10 arrays (12 drives per array) Here's my question: What's the biggest...

  • Plug Netgear ReadyNAS into a different machine

    Can I take my HDD out of my NAS (it's running on RAID) and plug it into another enclosure and have it work? It's a Netgear ReadyNAS. Would this be possible?

  • Should I use ZFS and RAID-Z with a home made NAS?

    I currently work from my home and I have a NAS. I'm thinking of using ZFS and RAID-Z with it (seems like a good fit). Has anyone used either one before? If so, are there any disadvantages? Thanks.

  • Can we add a hard drive to a RAID?

    We recently decided on creating a NAS running freeNAS that's going to be using RAID 5. The RAID will have 2x2 TB drives and add more drives later. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks!

  • Is there a low-cost NAS for home use?

    At my house, we have a Pentium 4 based Ubuntu server that we need to replace with a Intel Atom-based machine for our network services. We're thinking of using a low-powered NAS over a GbE with 1 TB of space and RAID. Is there something like this? Should we rather get a full size ATX mobo and...

  • How to confirm if RAID drive went bad?

    We have a Synology DS213 that has two 600 GB drives on RAID 1. I think it was two nights ago, it reported that the second drive became degraded and we should replace it. But when we ran the SMART test, it said the drive was fine. Is there to actually confirm that the drive went bad?

  • Why isn’t RAID a backup?

    I apologize if this is a dumb question but I was having a conversation with my friend about backups and he told me that RAID is not a backup. Is that true? What would be the difference between redundancy and a backup? Thanks!

  • Should I use RAID on my backup server?

    I've been setting up a new backup server (using Symantec Backup Exec so that it stores hard disks instead of tape). This is because the size of our backup is outgrowing our tape capacity. But here's my question: Should I use RAID for the backup server? Thank you
