What will be the best archiving/backup solution?
on Oct 14, 2012 at 6:44:28 am


I'm quite new in this regard and I hope you can help me.

This is my situation. I'm doing video editing/archiving and need a good backup solution plus a networked one for other people to access the final materials.

Right now I have around 3 tb of materials needed to be backed up and made available to the public. My understanding is that I should get a NAS device, put into there 2x4 tb drives for Raid 1 and have some extra room for growth. And better to have 4 bay unit for future development. It should support Sata III and USB 3.0 for good data rates.

I was thinking of getting a cloud service, but uploading 3 tb takes months and is not practical. If I get a NAS, then I can make my data available right in my home, am I right?

Am I going the right way?

I use a simple system for editing, have my raw materials on one drive, rendering to another one.

If Nas is the way to go, could it be possible to use it's raid for rendering also? As I understand it can improve rendering speed, but I have no experience on that.

I'm working on windows platform.

Please let me know what should I do and what's the way to go. Thank you!
