Looking for File Sharing / Storage Hardware Recommendations
Posted on 2006-06-24
We are looking to implement Client Backup software, we have a mix of 50 Windows XP and 50 OS X desktops with some laptops. Probably going for Retrospect 7.5 on a Windows Server.
My question is what kind of storage server or SAS or NAS solution should i use for the hardware? We currently have a dell 830 Poweredge also anothe dell 2650 both running raid 5.
Mostly the users will be storing Documents and Images, we were thinking 1 TB of storage should be plenty to use? Or do we need more? I would like to have th option of scalibility.. but the SAS and NAS solutions are quite expensive.. our budget is 10k including the Retrospect software.
Could this be done?
