V – Thing That You Should Know Before Buy;

+If you plan to use Qnap only for backup, or home usege, you can choose a begining device just like “x12″ series. But, If you plan to use Qnap at the center of our campany, more than 70 user plan to use it at the same time, and you need high upload / download speed (around 120 mb), I Highly recommand you to choose “x69″ series.

+Its Importand how much size that you need. Qnap use RAID system for data security and protection. Generally RAID 1 is prefered for 2 HDD supported device, and RAID 5 & 6 is preferes for 4/5/6/8/10/12/16 HDD supported devices.

Lets say you have 8 x 2 TB HDD

If you use them as single disk, your free size : 16 TB

If you plan to use RAID 5 with 8 HDD, your total free size will ve multiple of 7, so your free size is 7 x 2 = 14 Tb

If you plan to use RAID 6 : 6 x 2 : 12 TB


VI – Qnap RAID Size Calculator;
