I work at a department that produce between 100-200 units a day (laptop, desktop, servers etc) so it is not a big enviroment. For years we have used an old HPE server for storage (old files that we need to store for different reasons, VM-backups etc), and some local services such as dns-server, ftp and few more applications but nothing advanced. Other then that we use it as NFS server for the storage of clonezilla images (not a daily practice but for some customers this is required).
I basically know next to nothing about what kind of specs we need for a NAS, but i was given the task to find one to replace our current dying HPE server.
The minimum specs i do know of is that we need at least 8 disk slots, we will start off with 5 HDD disks (around 6TB each and minimum 7200RPM), redundant power supply and rackable chassis (it is better with more lenght than height since it will be racked in a rack-cabin. Of course hotplug is required with the disks.
We will run with raid-5 (i tried to push for raid-6 but i was overruled).
It does not have to be a monster of a NAS obviosly but it should not be so weak that it is slow to navigate.
Room for any special high speed interfaces is not a requirement but preferred.
Please help me with finding a proper NAS that can live up to the requirements and not be too costly.
I do apologize if some of the specs make no sense, as mentioned, i don't know anything about NAS in general.
I almost forgot, the power supply is 230V 10A.
