NAS Question

What's the fastest rack mount diskful SSD NAS I can buy? I would want one with 4 bays that hold 3tb ssd drives. I don't want to install the drives, I just want it to come to ready to plug into the network. I want it to be lightning fast, as people will need to store large backups quickly. Any help would be much appreciated.

You could use this and it in RAID10 and the disk output would be more than the network could handle.  But the drives are not SSD.http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/NETGEAR-ReadyNAS-2120-RN21242E-NAS-server-8-TB/2995232.aspx

You will probably need 10Gb network to load an SSD array the way you talk about.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

How do you gauge the speed? We have a QNAP at our datacenter and it is slow...

4 spindles serving this will be very fast.  It will easily be able to keep up.

What is a spindle?

The pivot point of a disk drive.  There are 4 disks in this box.

Wouldn't that be the same for any NAS with 4 hard drives?

It will depend on the type of RAID used.  An additional consideration is the actual access speed of an SSD drive.  If you put SSD drives in a NAS designed for disk based drives, the NAS itself may become a bottleneck.  You would really be looking at a specialty item that is specifically engineered.  And such a thing will easily outpace a 1Gb network.
