I'm in the market for a sub-$1000 NAS solution for a small development/QA network. Needs to be reliable and something we won't worry about overnight, but does not need to be bulletproof/5 nines/what have you.
A few avenues we have explored are:
Anyone have any experience with those solutions or other recommendations in this space?
- We are going to principally be hosting Hyper-V virtual machines to it.
- 500gb should be more than enough disk space
- Performance isn't a main concern, but it should be fast enough as to not cause the DEV/QA applications issues.
- Looking at mainly iSCSI -- we are effectively replacing a 8xSAS drive internal array with this. NAS could come in handy in a pinch
