Question about San Computers & Internet
I'm working with one of the Medical Transcription Company
Everyday we are receiving 4 GB Data on our Server. So, we are facing an issue with Storage right now.
I'm confuse that whether i should go for SAN or NAS?
What kind of configuration should i purchase for SAN or NAS?
Can any one sugges?
If you need to store this data for several years, it's going to be a huge machine.
I solved a similar issue by using a standard PC and fill it with disks, and then run Freenas on it. It's BSD based, gives you NFS, SMB/CIFS, iSCSI, FTP, HTTP/WebDAV, Apple, ... connectivity in an open source package, ready to go, easy to manage. it supports doing software Raid 5 with a bunch of disks, so stable and secure. I even lost a disk last week, and replaced it with another one. After 2h the system was 'OK' again...
If you really need huge storage capacity, go for a 'standard' storage server (supermicro for instance) that can store 24 or more disks... You have them in several brands, and the SuperMicro ones aren't that expensive.
Put in a bunch of inexpensive disks (500GB SATA-II disks are really affordable these days) and create a RAID5 array out of all these...
If you want to be even more secure, go with hardware Raid controllers. We use 3Ware/AMCC controllers all the time.
If you got the money, Sun just released a couple of 'Storage Servers' in their 7000 series... Go check them out...
