Do any of you know the pros and cons of using RAID vs. not using it?
Not sure but I just ordered this yesterday for our new shop. I'm not the one setting it up so I don't know much about it. But it has to be better than what we're doing now. In my case it's for back up.
Do always remember though that the intention of RAID is performance and/or fault tolerance, it is not intended to be your only backup. If you happen to get a virus, or a corrupted file, raid will happily make sure that corrupted file or virus is across all drives for you....
just curious but what made you go with that??
My super smart go to guy recommended it for me. I wanted a surefire backup system across our network and he said this would do the job.
I'll still backup to external drives because I'm super paranoid about data loss. I've had it happen in the past and don't ever want to go through that crap again.
