Storage Server for student data
Seeing as it looks like we're going to be storing student data in some form or another now I need to find a decent priced storage device to put it on.
Working on worst case scenario... 8000 students x 50MB each = 400GB but it's likely to be more like a quarter of that in reality I'd say, possibly even less so don't need to go too mad on that side of things.
At the moment the network is still physical boxes and not being replaced for another year or 2 (5-year replacement cycle for server kit) so no SAN about as yet.
Any suggestions for something suitable? We're HP for server kit usually so it'd probably be that route unless it's a NAS appliance of some sort?
