  1. External RAID enclosure for 2x12TB

    That's an even better idea.
  2. External RAID enclosure for 2x12TB

    Not terribly helpful but these kinds of things are dime a dozen. I'd find you that you feel is visually appealing and gets decent reviews on NewEgg or Amazon. Perhaps start with Icy Dock, we've had good success with them in the past. Higher end models would include guys like Caldigit and Netstor.
  3. I'd look at what Netgear has to offer, they've had this functionality for a long time. As to which way you go, there are a dozen options or more, hard to advise you as this is not my specialty.
  4. I'd opt for two units. I don't think the cable modem will provide you with nearly as good of an experience as a proper wireless router, which can easily support your USB need.
  5. Storage Spaces vs unRAID

    We've had all flash arrays come in smashed int eh front with drive caddies bent. Very sad day, but 90% of what we get in the lab has drives inside the systems/arrays.
  6. Snapshot functionality and improvements are one of the highlighted areas in this update, including a brand-new Storage & Snapshots Manager that features storage management and snapshot protection through a more comprehensive and intuitive UI design. Moreover, volume and LUN types are easily identified, as all snapshot versions (as well as the time of your latest snapshots) are precisely recorded. QNAP QTS 4.3.4 Now Available
  7. Age of newly purchased disks

    Agreed, that gap is bizarre.
  8. The betas are public, you can download those if you like.
  9. It really depends on your activity, but if it's a lot of seq read and write, I think you'll be okay.
  10. mSATA is a different interface - looks like a gum stick vs normal 2.5" drive.
  11. It should be seen when the Mac is on...I don't know why the one you made didn't wake up. RAID0 is pretty much going to be 2x whatever HDD you use. I wouldn't expect much performance variation, or at least noticeable variation, from what you have already.
  12. That's just an SSD. You can put whatever you want in there that's SATA to replace the M550.
  13. Built to take a beating, the PowerEdge XR2 replaces the PowerEdge R420xr, and like the rest of the 14G line, it brings more performance, security, and management features. Dell EMC Announces A Rugged Version Of its 14G PowerEdge Servers
  14. We're expecting a vSAN config with Optane soon. Hopefully we'll have time to borrow a drive for a little more of a shakedown.
