Techically you can use software raid, but I would not recommend doing that for your primary backup storage. It's B120i in your HP, isn't it?
It's B120i. It remains the question if the purchase of a hardware raid controller makes sense. Basically I'm looking for apossibility to have a repository which isn't split into individual hard drives, especially for the 3TB data from the file service. Are there other solutions?
JBOD is OK to use if you're fine with the idea of loosing a part or the whole set of your primary backups on a day when one or more harddrives in your JBOD fail. On the other hand if the backup copy job copies every new backup immediately then it might be not so bad as it sounds.
The backup copy jobs are at the moment scheduled only for running during the night. But that's something still to refine.
Depends on what you're after. This thread
is worth checking.
Thanks for the link. I'll have a look.
