is there a relationship between storage space and number of cpu's required to handle it? if i have 100GB of data a night coming in through a fat pipe remotely from 50 different sites so that the total data footprint over a 18hr period is 100GB, and i wanted to have a 20TB NAS or storage system receiving it, does the NAS server need to have, for example, 1 xeon or should it be a dual cpu with multi core etc
the purpose of the NAS is redundancy for data in the field. Assume that there is no bandwidth issue and we will be using fat pipes to move the data, my concern is the simultaneous piping of seperate geographic instances of 2GB of data coming in from 50 - 100 seperate sites. i don't want to have read/write issues or missing/crashing of a sync.
i need a direction to start testing with this idea, so if i have to move that much data onto a NAS server nightly.
if it is too vague a question i can elaborate it more, thanks.
