Expert opinion on external backup.
Hello all, need some help. I'm looking for an external storage system that is raid 1 capable. This is for backup at a business so I want to make sure I get something very good and reliable. I've looked at the ones that are expandable, like that have 4 bays, and that would be great. We will start out with 1 terabyte then increase as needed. In terms of interface, I would want eSata at least. I was also thinking that a NAS interface might be good, but we do not have a network setup where this will be. Do you need a router for a nas, or can you just use a switch? With no internet access in the building yet, we don't have a router, but if I need one to plug a NAS into, as long as it doesn't have to have internet access, I'm down. Thank you for the assistance.
