Our company is looking for a good value in a NAS
It is going to be just for user files so we get them off the server to someplace that gets backed up more regular, has redundant power, safer raid and the likes.
The NAS is going to be located in India.
We are considering the lower end American Megatrends server.
We also had a Dell / EqualLogic that is now 6 years old. It has not appeared to have ever went down.
What "good value, small NAS" servers have you had experience with ? Yes I know now to google this and ask the salesman if there product is good…. I am looking for positive experience with a NAS that works :)
EMC and NetApp are too expensive for this need. We just need 2 TB of Cifs storage that works and continues to work. Easy to work with an does not have the "COW" snapshot ( copy on write ) would be a big plus as the netapp disk type snapshot would be preferred as we will need to back this thing up ! I understand that "COW" snapshots can get messed up if you try to snapshot under heavy load.
