I'm looking to buy an 8+ bay, rackmount NAS device. One of the features I'd like is full drive encryption using self encrypting drives (SEDs) and a trusted platform module (TPM). Does anyone make such a thing? Synology does not. It's looking like Seagate does not either (which is weird, since they manufacture SEDs).

  • Do the drives need to be hot swappable?

  • Yes. And they will be part of a RAID 1 volume. Probably use Seagate Enterprise 4TB, SED Markara.

  • The 3.5" SATA drives, or something else? Do you already have another computer, or would a new platform work? What's your budget? Do you particularly care about power?

  • The large capacity, enterprise quality, drives that Seagate makes that I would use are all 3.5" drives. I am either buying or building a NAS device to add to my existing equipment. I prefer buying, as I am under the delusion that I will get better support that way. I'd spend around $2K for a NAS. I'm not too concerned about power.

  • Would you be willing to buy used hardware?
