I run a number of laptops, ipad, phones, imac, ps3, mac mini on our dual band wireless network. It works great.
What I have is a problem with is the growing number of external hard drives I have connected our imac.
What I need is a large storage solution for time machine back ups from to laptops and the imac. Also the storage needs to hold our music, large amounts of photos and lots of home movies awating me to edit them some day lol.
So I am thinking something around 8 Terabytes will allow capacity for the future. We has about 4 Terabytes now.
So what is the best solution for data safety and still be affordable?
I have been thinking of the DROBO stuff such as Drobo S Storage Robot - eSATA/Firewire 800/USB 2.0
or Synology DiskStation DS410J 4-bay NAS Server
or Western Digital ShareSpace 4-Bay Gigabit Ethernet RAID Network Storage System - 8TB
Any ideas or other experience. How much noise do these make??
Just backed up everything ready to put Lion on. Hope it goes without a hitch. Hence why back up is on my mind.
