I just ordered four 350GB Seagates to upgrade the fileserver with RAID5 storage of almost a terrabyte (you need to do this if you are sharing with Lord :p)

Anyway - thought I would start a poll / thread to see what sort of HD space folks here like to have on their servers (please do not post about your desktops etc)

I have a 1TB setup in my server - 250x4 - works like a treat ;)

As long as I manage my data effectively as in killing stale records (I house backups for clients for a nice fee ;) ) I can stay within my space limits. I also archive some on DVD and store offsite in safety deposit boxes, for more fees :lick:

Derek - wasn't yours a commercial disk array thinger rather than a file server? I seem to remember a thread on that, so why not remind me?

I have a Buffalo TeraStation, but that is seperate for my own personal use and is offline. The file server itself is on the net and protected.

I love to blow money :smoker:

oh and Lord - please do not vote here, I already did so for our fileserver (and decided it came into the over 900 category, even though we effectively split it in half - since it is now going to be pwned by me with the expenditure I put in for the HD's)

I guess if you already did it is too late - but I have a feeling the other one is from Derek since he posted on it also....

Does mirrored count as two?

I have 2x120gig (mirrored), and 2x160gig (mirrored), 2x80gig (Mirrored)

About 600gb, ish! :p

I might add that is spread over 6 main file servers at 6 different offices, together with another 2 application servers, exchange server and PMS server in the main office.


I actually ordered another 250 gig hd... plus the 600 gigs in the one beast. not to mention the other system with a total of 500 gigs in it and the paultry laptop with a mere 60 gigs...


There is no answer!

i remember when 1gb was seem as enormous and a total waste of space, who could possibly ever use that much HD space haha
