    Hi Guys,
    At work we have 2 new R310 severs and they have no onboard RAID/SAS cards and i need to get about 2gb of storage on both of them, would it be best to use a NAS or a storage array, and what cards fit the R310 (as i couldn't see any info on the Dell tech spec)

    It really depends on the usage/load and how much you want to spend.

    You could go for a NAS or get something more advanced like a Drobo. Or go all out and get yourself a SAN.

    If the storage doesn't need to be shared, you could just change the HDD's in the servers to bigger ones or add an eSATA/USB external HDD.

    Well effectively its just file server storage so a SAN is a little excessive for a small company, i was thining of a storage array although a NAS may be cheaper!
