I am trying to find a hardware solution for an historical database. I have been looking into NAS and I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on a build based on some specific needs:

I currently have a database that contains (or will contain) the following:

Existing - 550 video clips average size 300Mb
To Be Entered - 1688 video clips average size 300Mb
(These files will all be accessible to the public through a website)

Existing - 21,000 images average size 2mb
To Be Entered - 80,000 images average size 2mb
(These files will all be accessible to the public through a website)

All of these images (100,000) also exist in a high-res format with an average size of 80mb

The high-res files will be referenced by number only within the public website, however, I will need the ability to access these files via ftp upon request.

Backups of the web files and database will be critical.

So the storage needs (approximately 9TB) will be much greater than what I will need to serve the public (approximately 3TB).

Traffic to the site will be relatively low.

Thank for any insight and let me know if you need any additional information. :hello:
