Why are you looking for an external drive?

I would think that most would work, depending on the use case.

Absolutely any. Format it in NTFS and you are good to go with it.

I was quoted $250 per external drive by the company that plans to install the server and I thought that excessive, unless there is a requirement for some special type of backup drive for Windows 2019 Server.   Amazon and other vendors have drives under $100 each.
Buy your own.
