I am managing the network of a Mid-Size Business and we need a Data Storage Solution. I am in need of some recommendations for the Data Storage Solution and a Backup Solution for this data. We are currently using a large RAID Array attached to a Windows Server. We have 1.5TB of data on it. It is getting full and it is very old. I'd like the new solution to be able to hold at leat 3TB of data and not attach to a windows server for managment of the RAID. Also, I'll need a new Backup solution that can handle backing this data up as well as a couple of other servers at about an additinoal 500GB nightly. I'd like to have some options that include an inexpensive solution up to a very expensive solution.
Let me know if you have any questions... and thanks in advance.
