Nas


Hallo!

I am searching for a good Nas to store sound files.

Backup would be done via RAID. Access controll is not needed, as everybody should read an write.

No, it`s not for a mp3 server, its for a dication system.

I already found the following open source projects:

http://www.freenas.org/

http://www.serverelements.com/naslite.php

http://www.openfiler.com/

http://cryptobox.org/

Does anybody use these systems ?

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

clarification?

Could you add a bit of information as to why you want a NAS system? What are you looking to have it do for you (and/or your organisation)?

Sure,

we have to build a digital dication system which needs to store a lot of wav-data files. As it could be that the files are not deleted correctly due to a lazy user, i would like to separate this system to a nas with raid1 a securety.

Datavolume : not really sure about that but 100GB should be enough
Network connection: 1GB maybe a bonding dev.

Have you decided what hardware you want to use?
It looks to me like you could use a NAS, or you could use a server with some method of file sharing (AFP,CIFS,NFS,etc).

If you want a prepackaged HW+SW NAS solution, you might look at the offerings from Infrant. After a quick check, it looks like the desktop models run $600 and up with no disk.

If you have an old computer you want to use, I would suggest you look at its hardware and check that against what is supported by OS it is based on. I would consider AFS, but that is probably overkill for your situation.

Well as i would like to keep it simple I think I will use an old pc with some kind of good raid controller or I will use a software raid.

But never the less lets take a look at that appliance you talking about....

Have you already tried a basic GNU/Linux install with samba or NFS (or whatever)? I think that the NAS packages you listed sound good, and since it does not seem that there exists much experience with them here - maybe you could just grab the system you have in mind, try out a few and post some of your experience here - so that the next person who is hoping for information can learn from you.
