pfSense Gold free with upcoming version 2.4.4

Postby P3R » Tue Jul 17, 2018 7:24 am

RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!

I didn’t buy into their Gold Membership, but for those who who wanted/needed it for support it’s one less reason to buy their overpriced hardware.
