Need peoples opinion on NAS boxes for a small business

Posted 27 May 2015 - 08:42 AM

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone would share their experience with NAS boxes and help guide me in the right direction.

Information

  • Serves 4 people
  • Needs over 2tb storage
  • Sync features like DropBox (Real Time Data Replication - RTDR)
  • Assessable from any computer over the internet ( for the files as important as those synced using RTDR )


Currently I have set up a QNAP NAS 4 tb raid one. Running 2 x 2tb drives.

I have had numerous problems with it, some blamed on me and some other problems with the functionality of the box. Mainly the mirrored hard drive is not accessible, at least though the GUI provided. I have not tried to gain access though command line as my boss needs to be able to have assess himself thus not needing to rely on myself. As well as warning on an hard drive and the fact that removing a drive and then plunging it back in causes the drive to format.

As a consequence he has loosed confidence in the system as I have been tasked with installing another.
Because of the previous experience I was hoping to get some feedback from people with experience in a similar situation.

Thanks in advance for your time and any input is valued.

Are you looking to build this yourself, or just grab a COTS?

Would love to if it was mine but not in this instance.

That doesn't answer my question.

Again - are you looking to build your own box, or use a commercial-off-the-shelf option?

Actually I am not sure whether this is the correct place for this topic and if so I apologise.
