Default Re: Guardian Snap vs ReadyNAS perfomance?

If your storage requirements is that small, why not use a hotswap bay with 1T drives. Then make duplicates set 3-5 times a week. With the speeds of work stations on a gige backbone you should get any where from 30-80MB/sec depending on setup. Where the best you will get out of the NV+ on a raid5 is 13MB/sec. They make special carry cases if your worried about damage during transport.
