Hello Experts - I am looking for recommendations for a NAS device to replace an aging Netgear.  It will be used as a local backup repository for Veeam and to hold archive data which needs to be made available to my users via a mapped drive on Windows 7.  I'd like one with an 8TB capacity for under $1500.  I've done some basic research and I like the look of this model but have never used one:

https://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Seagate-Business-Storage-Windows-Server-STDM8000100-NAS-server-8-TB/3187981.aspx

It actually runs server 2012 rather than Linux and administration is handled from a traditional desktop via RDP.  I like the idea of using a Windows environment since that is what I am most familiar with but its not a requirement.

Please let me know your recommendations, thanks!

I would typically look at Synology or Qnap for a professional NAS system.
