fast storage solution

Post by landmeterbeuckx » Wed Apr 25, 2018 7:05 am

Hello,
The amount of data on my system is going crazy. I'm searching for a system to work with for all my scanning needs.

Currently i'm working on the system drives C and D of my main pc but it gets full rather fast and i'm constantly moving files along.

Would this https://www.synology.com/nl-nl/products/FS1018#features system be something to work on with current projects and move to backup later on?

the problem is also the price of ssd's. it would cost a fortune to fill it up with just 1TB ones

I don't think it is recommended to put SSD's in a NAS server, but you better consult an IT expert. I have a 512 GB fast SSD for actual projects and 4Gig NAS on gigabyte LAN filled with 3 HDD's and an external one for backup. It is reasonably fast to move projects around. If I was to upgrade I would go for 1GB SSD for actual projects. I had a couple of projects where there was not sufficient space for registration in Faro Scene, a sole project on the 512GB SSD! It is crazy.

If storage is your only concern, I wonder if you may benefit from a stand alone NAS, rather than a server.
It would certainly be a cheaper solution for the time being.
