If you’re in a position where you need to store large amounts of data, need it readily available and can’t afford any downtime then you should consider a NAS setup in RAID configuration.

The joy of a NAS is that the data is accessible over the network, hence the name ‘network attached storage’. Your users can access the data remotely, and by creating a RAID array such as a RAID 5 you can add the capacity of the drives together and create one large volume. As well as the large volume of storage that RAID allows you, you will get the safety of knowing that if one drive goes down, simply replacing it will restore the data to health without any loss.
