I am in the process of buying a QNAP NAS. However, I am still unsure which QNAP NAS would suit me the best, keeping in mind the price/performance ratio.
I will be using my NAS mainly for (automated) Usenet downloads using SABNZBD and Sick Beard. Apart from that I will be installing PS3 MediaServer to stream HD movies and series to my PS3. I also want to stream these HD movies and series to my computers (just 1 stream at the same time).
Also, I will be using it as my private FTP server to store offsite backups and as a public filehost (max 3 concurrent connections).
Last but not least I want to install ‘CrashPlan’ to make online backups of my data.
The setup I am looking at is a 4 bay NAS in RAID10. I was thinking of 4x3TB in RAID10, so that makes 6TB of useable space.
So in short, here are the requirements:
4 drive bay
PS3 Media Server
As you can see, I am a fairly demanding ‘high-end’ user. Personally, after doing some research, I think that the QNAP TS-419P II will suit me best. At first I was thinking about the TS-412, but I think the 256MB of RAM is a little bit on the low side.
I look forward hearing your opinions!
I doubt that. As far as I know, performance should be the strong point of RAID 10. Especially write performance must suffer from the parity calculations necessary with RAID 5 and even more with RAID 6.pwilson wrote:You will probably get better performance out of your NAS in a RAID5 or RAID6 configuration...
