New box or add on to existing DS1511+

Postby Zbugsii » Sat May 13, 2017 8:55 pm

I have the DS1511+ for many years now and have been very happy with it. I have it configured with 5 x 5TB drives in a Raid 6 configuration.

I am getting to the point I need to expand my capacity... but am also thinking maybe I should get a new more powerful box... like the DS1517+ or DS1817+.

I know I could just add larger drives and have it expand itself overtime after each new drive addition and completion of the raid rebuild, but I am just worried about age of the box, should it decide to die. I also know I can add an expansion box... but then again, if the main box dies... I am back in a pickle.

So I am looking for thoughts on which way to go?

Anybody have thoughts on this... I can also use my old box as a backup repository and only turn it on when I need to.

Thanks....

Nobody have any thoughts in this regard... or some experience with which to share... ?
