Recommend nas backup device
Please could someone recommend a good replacement for the a tera station pro 2 with 4 tb / raid 5 storage as a tower with a gig nic card. My current one is failing and I think more than one drive is going but they have not completely gone so I dont know which ones are playing up, and I have lost 70% of the data stored on it. Its not an issue as they are just backups but its a pain.
I like the tera stations when they work but customer service are a real pain when they go wrong and they dont want to take them back and make it as hard as they can to get it sorted.
I did try a lacie one, but I cannot backup all my windows servers at the same time as it caps the connection speed. I only found this out in the very small print in the leaflet that came with the server and not in the specification. I have to use it as a second backup server and copy one of the windows servers backups each day to the lacie so it holds a 4 backups for each server.
I know I could build a freenas box but I dont have time and want one off the shelf and would prefer it to talk to acive directory.
Any advice that anyone could give would be incredibly helpful.
