I have just been assigned a project to research, design, and implement a network storage solution for our company. We are moving towards a paperless office so file servers are greatly needed. I am looking for suggestions/ideas for a storage solution with the following requirements:
Clustered Drives for redundancy
Terabyte - size drives (probably start with ~2 terabytes of storage)
Integrated windows Authentication (to allow for providing access using shared folders)
Upgradeable storage size
Ideally this would be a blade server so it won't take up a lot of space on our racks. I don't think money will be too much of an issue - i've got a budget of around 30K.
