I have been assigned the task of finding a 2 NAS solution with Redundancy for approximating 100 Users. Size for storage requirements is 2TB and primary use will be File storage/Backups and possibly Print server.
I am confused whether i need a Windows Storage Server R2 such as the dell http://premierconfigure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?cs=RC1050265&customer_id=RC1050265&oc=PE2950WSS1&~tgt=global_cfg&c=UK&l=en&s=PAD
as we have only windows clients and i would like the AD share/permissions kept the same if this possible ?
or should i consider a solution based on Open-e NAS such as http://www.av-digital.com/AV-NAS2000.html
Need to Purchase 2 NAS units (1 at each site)
Only 1 NAS to be used, But Both must replicate data for DR purposes, i.e Snapshots or true file level replication
ISCSI - Not Sure if this is a better option for DR purposes ?
Able to attach a External LTO 3 drive
Ability to install veritas Backup exec agent for NAS backup to Tape on weekends
If anyone can has purchased a Open-e or Windows SS R2 NAS. Please can you advise which would best suit my requirements
