I am looking to implement new storage device(s) on a network with 5 physical servers and 2 virtual Hyper V servers.
My client currently has 1 NAS and their Corp office which back's up off-site to a co-location NAS, Both Nas's are 2TB storage devices. They are Buffalo NAS's and are extreamly slow.
One thing I don'y like about a NAS back-up device is that unless you stagger the back-ups, it will slow your internal bandwidth down to a screeching halt.
What I am thinking about doing is having an external USB back-up device for each machine. And possibly backing up the virtual hyper V instances also. I just cant find any USB device that seems to be suitable for commercial use unless they cost an arm and a leg ? And advise ??
Oh yeah, did I mention my clients budget is not the best... LOL
