NAS for Backup.... swapping Tags: NAS / RAID Backup Storage Last response: February 20, 2006 6:35 AM in Storage Share mpasternak February 15, 2006 7:11:38 PM Here's what we're lookin to build Network attached storage. anywhere from 5 to 7 hot swappable Drives (preferably SATA) will not be doing any heavy duty number crunching. but be used purely to backup all our existing servers and databases on a daily basis be able to run some form of backup agent that will poll the networks and backup specific databases Cheap. what we basically plan to do is have a rotating schedule where everyday back's up to a different hard drive. EG, Monday would be Disc 1. Tuesday Disc 2, and so on and so fort for 1 week than start again.
