Episode 859 (1:07:58)

Paul from Los Angeles, CA

Paul wants to get a RAID 5 NAS backup solution and wants to know what happens when a drive fails. Leo says the nice thing about RAID 5 is you can pop out a drive, put a replacement in and there’s no downtime or rebuild. What about Carbonite, will it work via RAID? Leo doesn’t think so. But JungleDisk can do it via their plugin. Crashplan also supports NAS’s. QNap. But make sure your NAS doesn’t have a utility for that.
