hello, my friend has a Law Office and he has about 1 terabyte worth of data. He needs a backup system and I was thinking of implementing a Raid 1 mirrored configuration. I was planning on getting two 4TB 7200 RPM (Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST4000NM0023 4TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive) drives and just putting it in either a Windows 7 or Win2k8r2 machine. Should I go with a NAS box?
Any suggestions or comments on whether this is a good plan or not? He does not want to do Carbonite as he has already tried that in the past.
