External Raid Enclosures FAQ
What are the best external RAID enclosures and can they replace NAS devices?
A good raid external enclosure should have versatile connectivity options. It should also maximize performance, with file transfer speeds up to 6Gbps or more because it is a shared resource. Furthermore, it should be able to achieve higher drive capacity or secure data redundancy with multiple RAID modes. RAID and NAS are separate technologies that can only work together or separately apart, but one cannot substitute the other.
