Server Backup Hardware

Lacie 5big Backup Server Network Storage download instruction

The is a wonderful network storage server powered by the best network-attached storage (NAS) software, FreeNAS. You can use it exclusively for backups, or for file-sharing and multimedia streaming. If you're into doing-it-yourself you can and install it on your own hardware.

FreeNAS has long been one of the most popular NAS systems; it is built on the rock-solid FreeBSD operating system, and uses the advanced enterprise ZFS filesystem. ZFS gives you a host of cutting-edge features to manage and protect your data, including deduplication, Z-RAID 5, 10, and striping, and encryption.

The Mini, a sleek little hardware appliance, holds up to four hot-swap SATA hard drives for a maximum 24TB of storage. It comes with 32GB of error-correcting RAM, an 8-core, 2.4GHz Intel processor, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, a hardware encryption module, physical locks, and FreeNAS installed on an internal flash storage module.

This little darling has it all: speed and capacity. It will set you back $1, 284 for 4TB of storage, and up to $2, 249 for 24TB. The manufacturer of the FreeNAS Mini, iX Systems, uses Western Digital Red NAS hard drives. These extra-rugged drives run cooler, and they're optimized for network storage. You can talk to the nice people at iX Systems to order one made to your specifications, or you can order it from Amazon in several configurations options.

The FreeNAS software comes with a Web control panel for controlling all aspects of your server, from configuring backups to hardware status and controls. It supports Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix clients. There are plenty of NAS appliances, and the FreeNAS Mini gets my vote for best value and best performer.
