Setting up NAS - best practice
Just bought a nice tidy looking 2TB Buffalo Linkstation NAS box which has 2 by 1TB drives that can be set in either Raid 0 or Raid 1.
We have a growing need for multimedia storage that doesn't necessarily need backing up on the curriculum domain - animation and photographs being the main items I suppose.
Whats best practice for setting this little beast up for the most effective and practical use we can get out of it?
I was thinking of setting it up as two shared drives one for student shared work and the other for staff with appropriate permissions on each (which again I'd appreciate suggestions on).
Currently one TA / Instructor who covers art and photography has 37GB of data stored in her home folder!!
