RAID1 enclosure for Mac Mini?
Posted on 2015-01-19
I have a brand new Mac Mini, we're going to be using it as a server.
I also have 2x Seagate Constellation ES.3 2TB SATA drives, which I would like to put into a RAID1 array for the storage of our files.
What's the best way to get these Seagate Constellations connected to the Mac Mini? Obviously there's no good way to install it internally in the Mac Mini so I'm imagining some sort of Thunderbolt or USB3.0 based enclosure is what I need, but which ones are the most mainstream? And is the RAID implemented in software by the Mac Mini, or in hardware by the enclosure? Which one is the best to get that won't bottleneck the performance, and will be the most well-supported down the road?
