Recommendations for new hardware

Recommended Posts

My current setup


- Server Computer with Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM

- Retrospect 9.5.3 ; 3 executions running

- Daily Snap shots stored to a ReadyNAS Pro with 10GB storage  (RAID 6x2TB drive)

- Weekly offsites to a USB 3.0 external HDD.   Uses a PCIe USB3.0 card


Backup sources

- One windows server

- one Synology NAS cluster acting as a file and SVN server.

- 25+ client workstations.  Several workstations average 10GB.   Some people have 8+ years of email in outlook PSTs :)


The ReadyNAS has a power supply failure 3 weeks ago, and two drives fail in one night.


I need to do a complete overhaul of both the daily onsite and weekly offsite

cloud storage has been taken off the table



My first thought at a solution for the server + onsite 



.. then i could have a powerful server with the RAID array built in.


I already had a dedicated NAS and server for the backups; why not combine into one piece of hardware?
