  5. Hey folks, I hope I do not miss any specific forum guidelines by starting the topic right here. Please notify me if I am missing something. I checked out a couple of reviews on and on other places on the internet as well as friends related to the IT sector. Short summary of facts: - ambitious amateur photographer with a lot of RAW image data - Mac only network, which means there is a MacBook Pro Retina and two MacBook Airs at the moment (total internal capacity of ~1,8TB) - TimeMachine backup running to external USB hard drive, an Apple TimeCapsule as well as CrashPlan online backup - an old Drobo FS with mixed old HDDs, total ~13-14TB (do not like it, very very slow, bad performance) - several USB 2.0 and FW800 drives, total ~6-7TB Aims: - buying a MacMini running OS X Server for home media consumption on HDTV, tv recording and automation workflows - buy a NAS or DAS (attached to MacMini and available via network share from the OSX Server) with about 20 TB raw capacity Use: - storage will mainly be used for storing large HD video files, RAW images and backups from the network computers - depending on hardware solution a dual disk redundancy should be workable My options: a) Synology DS1813+ with 8x 4TB HDD - what performance is to be expected from a DS1813+ if used with a single gigabit ethernet connection in a Mac network? I read about a couple of performance issues with SMB/AFP file transfer on Mac OS X Mavericks - I will not be able to purchase a switch with 802.3ad capability for my use as they are quite expensive. That means no link aggregation possible, correct? - use of RAID 6? External backup solution might be a couple of USB drives b ) Drobo 5D with 5x 4TB HDD - dual disk redundancy using Drobo's Beyond RAID - performance using Thunderbolt on a Mac should be around 100-150MB/s - network share using a Mac as a server - external backup using old Drobo FS or a couple of USB drives c) Lacie or G-Technology RAIDs - Lacie thunderbolt drives with 8TB or one 20TB, but they all come with RAID0/1, therefore having an exact copy on another Lacie drive is necessary - expensive - G-Technology also offers 8TB thunderbolt, same problem as Lacie but maybe more reliable hard drives - G-Technology G-Speed Q RAID is very pricey Choose of HDD: If deciding for a Drobo or Synology NAS, which hard drive is optimal to chose in terms of long life reliability? Performance should be ok with all of them for my needs - WD SE or WD RED 4TB - Hitachi Deskstar 4TB I do not like to go with Seagate as I had bad experience, however I had a couple dead-on-arrival WD RED 3TB last year in my Drobo FS. Other suggestions on 4TB are welcome. Looking forward for any feedback and suggestions, personal experience and recommendations! Best, Robert

  7. The QNAP TS-470 is a 4-bay NAS designed for SMB use (its sibling the TS-470 Pro is aimed at SOHO environments).

Four Gigabit LAN ports (two single onboard and one dual-port gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express card) allow for maximum bandwidth efficiency; additionally, the dual-port NIC can be swapped out with a 10GbE adapter, greatly increasing IOPS throughput. With a mind toward scalability, the TS-470 offers a centralized storage solution for applications and environments with ever-growing storage needs, while also providing a full range of management applications and features through the QTS 4.0 operating system. Emphasis on data security, backup and retrieval, and antivirus also make the TS-470 an ideal choice for those who seek worry-free storage and safeguarding of increasing amounts of data.
