QNAP or Synology?
Happy New Year to you all :D
Scenario: Backup System is D2D2T,
Diskbox: 2003 windows storage
1TBx4 1GB DiskBox 2U RACK RAID0 SCSI_CTRL
Quantum L700 20 tape auto-loader attached to above via scsi
Diskbox has a hardware fault I have been unable to track down, done all the usual stuff but it still remains (Think it is the M/B) as it is rather old over 5 years I was thinking of a change.
Looking at the schools requirements got me to thinking what about a NAS which is capable of delivering multiple services such as user storage, backup storage and storage capable of running VM's and the above 2 companies got me thinking.
Looking at 32 - 48TB raw storage capacity, hypervisor compliant with all standards and different raid configurations plus lots of other goodies.
This is the QNAP model I am looking at with 2 extra nics installed: QNAP TS-1279U-RP 48TB 12 Bay 2u Rack NAS Server with iSCSI (TS-1279U-RP/48TB) - www.misco.co.uk
Not quite sure which model from the Synology range yet but am working on this as we speak,
What I would like to ask is there any flaws in my plan so far?
Constructive advice would be appreciated
Thank you all :D
114 views and not one reply, someone must be able to give me some advice surely?
thanks in advance :D
@Arthur - Just wondering if you can add any input into this ( I recall talking to @bossman about this on friday evening ).
Maybe worth upgrading the RAM on that unit to its max amount ( which I believe is 4gb ( 2 x 2gb modules ) assuming you go with this unit as apposed to a QNAP or another device ?

We have a 1279U with 24tb (12x2tb) in it, does what it says; it hosts our user data intermediate backups. Solid piece of kit.
We got ourselves a Synology DS2413+ 48TB - the thing is awesome, no nonsense set up, fantastic UI and loads of features (although some like CCTV you need to buy extra (expensive) licenses for more functionality). Both Qnap and Synology are very highly spoken of generally so either would be a good choice imo.
