NAS device for Autodesk Civil 3d 2012 users. Recommendation on brand and Raid level
Posted on 2011-10-12
I work for a shop that has 6 Autodesk Civil3d users and they need more storage space. I'm looking for a recommendation as far as brand/model and recommended Raid level. So far I've looked at the NetGear ReadyNas 2100 and it's price/specs seem pretty good.
I like the fact that it has 2 Gigabit ethernet ports, integrates with Windows AD, drives are hot-swappable, 5yr warranty and the price is pretty reasonable. I'm just not sure of what to look for in regards to performance and the Civil3d users. Currently there are 6 but that number could jump to around 10 or 12.
