Thanks for the guide, together with official documentation and forum is a good start for design your FreeNAS gear.
RAIDz2 should be plenty. Just remember it is a redundancy, not a backup.This is just a note of thanks, skip ahead.
I'm ashamed to say that I've only just got around to reading through the guide in preparation for my first server. Thanks for the time and effort you put into it Cyberjock.
I'm happy to say that I knew about half of what was in the guide thanks to the research I've done up to this point (and all the informative conversations I've read on this forum) but there's some stuff that's new to me and very helpful to know. I think I've done everything right so far and (aside from one or two non-critical choices) the guide has reassured me that I'm right to be happy with the hardware I've chosen... I just wish I could get rid of the nagging "RAIDz2 isn't enough" voice in the back of my head!
Thanks for the friendly reminder but I definitely haven't forgotten that RAID isn't a backup.RAIDz2 should be plenty. Just remember it is a redundancy, not a backup.
