Not saying that it is impossible just highly improbable, you will have better chance of striking the lottery instead.
Products-RAID SYSTEM / SATA HDD ENCLOSURE
anyone using the above?
i already max out every slot in my tower , some alr hanging in mids - manual raid
plus 1TB external too
just found out this Pegasus RAID Storage with Thunderbolt

I highly doubt you will max it out that soon for this configuration
The quality and stability part is definitely true for our power system. But surges can occur if there is a system trip somewhere in the island.Originally Posted by 9V-Orion Images
On lightning risks, it's quite real for those living on landed properties. For apartment dwellers, much lower but not zero. A lighting strike on the building can induce a spike in your power system to cause damage.
I live in a hdb apt, I suppose being in the top floor made it worse. I had 2 modems that died after a hit on or near my building. About another 3 occasions of the elcb tripping.
The risk is low but real. Also not to forget that together with the laws of physics, Murphy's Law tends to take precedence. ;-)
i just use a external HDD.. i dont save all my photos. mostly only travel photos ill save..the rest probably just upload to share then delete.
hmm.. i dont have any problem with regards to not enough spaces to store.
Between RAID 5 and RAID 10, it must be tested to know which is better for your configuration. Not sure on the Synology, because my aim for the NAS is reliability versus speed. In fact, it will be turning to RAID 6 in the near future.
RAID 10 is not redundancy of 2 for all failure scenarios while RAID 6 is. The only advantage is RAID 10 is easier to rebuild for degraded scenarios, but being faster is not definite case. WHen compared to RAID 5, you have to take into account the cache memory (with or without battery backup) and also if the H/W has dedicated XOR engine.
anyone here using a Thunderbolt I/O HDD yet? The Thunderbolt port on my mac is desperately waiting to be fed some 10Gbit/s but I havent seen any decently sized HDDs for it.
For normal spindle hard drives, you will need quite a large number of them to make good use.
In fact, I hardly feel even the recently SATA 3G is saturated except for when hard disk cache is used. But I tend to believe hard disk cache efficiency is diminished with file cache that are already found in kernels of operating systems. They are larger and nearer to the kernel for re-use versus hard disk cache.
Bit off topic.
Was at Sim Lim, looking to up my NAS to 2x2TB or 2x3, hd prices doubled...damn!
Reason given was shortages due to the Thai floods. Think it's more opportunistic pricing.
Estimate given was about 6 months to be back to normal.
Store in the Cloud where a company offers on-line storage for a time-based fee. So that if the company goes bankrupt suddenly, all your photos are gone.
