Currently looking in to a NAS backup solution which will primarily be used for storing images of a few employees laptops and also storing some internal data. Most likely going to go with the Synology DiskStation DS415+ 4 Bay Enclosure and some WD Red drives as they seem to be reliable and trusted!!
Now my big problem is deciding on what RAID to use.. I believe RAID 6 is the more reliable and can withstand any 2 drives dying? We have 4 bays and would like half of the drives to be used for storage. We will most likely be writing small amounts of data daily though so the performance could be an issue with RAID 6 as opposed to RAID 10.
So my question is...
- What RAID is best for data recovery?
- Am I able to just pull a drive out with all the data on for an easy off-site backup? Would obviously replace this with a new fresh drive.
