Hi, what do you think is the best kind of drive for a small NAS Server?
I have a 1 drive QNAP TS-110 Turbo NAS
I was thinking on this 2 kinds of drives, both are compatible with my NAS:
- 2TB WD BLACK
- 2TB WD RED
Money is of no concern, i only need one drive and i want to use it on the NAS which will be used to store all my WORK FILES and ASSETS (3D Library, textures, etc). My workstation and my 2 render nodes will access those files on the NAS to work from and render. They will not be stored locally in each computer. (Or perhaps maybe just the current project will be on the workstation...)
The WD RED specifies that it is made for a NAS, and is better for RAID, but in my case i will not use RAID (since is just a one drive NAS as i mentioned), so that is why i want to know your opinion.
Which of this HDDs do you will be better for performance and reliability on this NAS and my "Work Scenario" ?
I work with 3ds Max, Vray, Photoshop, Autocad
Note: I will have an 2TB External HDD backing up this NAS for security...
Thanks for your advice.
