currently, our Veeam Backup Server is connected to a QNAP TS-869U-RP https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/model.php?II=30&event=2
with a RAID5 storage pool over 1 GbE iSCSI connection.
Because of performance and capacity reasons, we are thinking about replacing the QNAP with the following DAS:
- Intel JBOD2312S3SP (12x 3,5'', SAS 12Gb/s) with redundant PSU
- Intel RS3MC044 SAS 12Gb/s RAID card (LSI 3108)
- SFF-8088 to SFF-8644 cable
- HDDs: we are deciding between keeping the existing 8 4TB WD Red 5400rpm SATA and buying 4 additional or buying 7 new Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD 4Kn 10TB, SATA 6Gb/s.
We are planning to use RAID6.
What is your opinion on the configuration? Do you have any experience with Intel JBOD systems? I guess also the existing WD Red drives should work with the mentioned RAID controller? If we decide for the new hard drives, should we get the 4K version or the 512e?
Thanks a lot!
