Hi

I am planning to implement a onsite backup for our network. I am looking to buy a NAS for this setup and my budget  is £2500-£3500.
I use backupassist software to backup all our user data and VEEM to backup all our VMs.

I think 24 TB storage should be sufficient for us to backup all my VMs and User data and archiving data

Please suggest a good NAS.

Thanks

I'm partial to Synology NAS systems for SMBs.

You have not specified if you want the NAS to be rack-mountable or not.

If not, the DS1813+ looks like it should fit your needs. 1000 euros for the NAS + 1200 for 8 consumer-grade 4TB HDDs.

If you need rack-mountable, looks like you'll need a RS2414+, and that will get you over budget.

HTH,
Dan
