    Just to re iterate what midget said above and also what about HP, Dell or the likes as far as NAS devices go ?

    Don't they do rack mounted NAS devices ?

    I would never buy any netgear NAS devices, especially not for business use. There are much better devices out there. If you can't use FreeNAS for warranty reasons then look at enterprise grade NAS devices with good DR reviews. There are alot of really cack ones out there that you are completely unable to recover from if the unit fails

    off the top of my head I think the Snap Servers and QNAP NASs were the best, but this was 2+ years ago
