I am going to buy a second NAS from Qnap and i am hoping to install this device and use it for backups of my current VMs. Right now i have two dell hosts and a raid 5 qnap device used for my servers. I want to be able to copy my VMs to the other storage device and if possible be able to power it on from the other storage device.
My hope is that i can have a synchonized copy on the both storage devices so if i lose a NAS the other can take it's place. I don't know if this is possible but i wanted to ask if any of you experts had suggestions or ideas.
I could possibly setup the other storage device and use the standalone converter to make copies of my VMs.
