I was wondering if anybody knew of any products that were capable of housing 250+ GB, even TB of data. I've been considering doing massive data backups of all my stuff and was wondering what I'd need and what impact it'd have on my wallet.



Who cares if the glass is half empty OR half full, if you're thirsty it'll all be gone anyways...

Here you go.

Promise Technology SATA Raid Controller 4 Port
(4) 250GB or (4) 300GB SATA
Config all of them in one BIG array as Raid 0

and the most important item of all is -> one fatttttt account

I would imagine it would probably set you back about $1400~1500 or so. Not so bad.

I looked around and it seams that capacity wise, Maxtor may be the only one that is making the 300GB size but only in the PATA form at the moment. The 250GB size is in both SATA and PATA format. The 300GB Maxtor you can get for about $260.00 US. If you want size then go for the 300GB Maxtor (qty4) and connect them to a Promise Tech TX4000 Raid controller. Run them in a Raid 0. This way you will get your TB size. But if you want to really protect the backup, open up the wallet and get another identical set to do a backup of the backup. heheheheheheh

Hi,

By now, your requirement might be in terabytes and so i suggest you a solution which is a backup and disaster recovery product.

http://www.iscsi.com/products/backup/vseries/

It is highly scalable, redundant and can also offer offsite storage in the form of a cloud service.
