Ultra 4 Replication.

Hi Guys,

I want to backup my nas box to another netgear - current NAS:

Ultra 4, x4 2TB HDD's, attached to a 1GB Network.

I wanted the replication to be quick, i guess this would go over the 1GB LAN?

Can you please suggest a Ready Nas - want to keep costs low.

I can also buy from the US if the saving is there..

Thanks

Well you could get another Ultra 4? Or if you have a bigger budget look to an Ultra 4 Plus, Pro 4 or maybe even one of the 6-bay units to us as a new main NAS. How full is your NAS currently and how much data do you expect to add?

Your cheapest option is probably an NV+ V2 (around $350 diskless at Amzon US at the moment). But personally I would get another x86 platform. This makes the management simplest, and is certain to keep things in sync. Amazon has diskless ultra 4's for about $500 US.

Currently have 4TB of data... will grow by another 2TB max..

The NV+ i think only takes 2 disks..

Well, with four 3 TB drives and xraid-2 or raid-5 you'd get 9 TB. Well above 6 TB he is expecting though, and the NV+ v2 matches the total capacity of his ultra-4.
