My boss asked me if I would could build something similar to those two external arrays at a much lower cost. I'm pretty familiar with building computers, I've built all of our office PCs, but how would I go about building this external RAID array, The DVR only has an SCSI connector?? I need at least 2TBS of storage in the array.
Would this setup work..... I know the Ram/CPU/PSU is a bit overkill since this is nothing more than an external raid array. But its still $2000 cheaper than the solutions offered from dedicated micros. The system has to serve as external storage for a camera DVR system. THE DVR BOX ONLY HAS A SCSI PORT. USB OR SATA ARE NOT AN OPTION. Is it possible to connect those four 1tb drives to the SCSI raid controller card??
