Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
To put it simply, I am looking for advice on the best practices for setting up a RAID 5 for a backup server. We would have 8 drives of 1TB each. I would like it to run solid with no downtime.
Some things specifically I would like opinions on are:
1. RAID 5 setup - best practices to ensure a solid RAID
2. Hardware to use - reliable brands/drives/RAID controllers etc.
3. Any advice on maintenance, as well as future proofing the backup server
Again, thank you for your help.
