2 out of 5 eggsForced use of RAID and no longer a hot-swap unit or ideal for off-site backups

Pros: Packed with lots of amazing features. You name it, this thing pretty much has it.

Cons: These new Qnap units force you to use RAID in their new Storage Pool. You have no option for opting out of using RAID and just a plain vanilla Linux partition.

Other Thoughts: I debated 3 stars because this thing is chock full of amazing features but I went with 2 stars because of the new forced mandate of using RAID and the file system corruption that ensued causing a complete and unrecoverable of loss of my data. Fortunately I had an offsite backup that was 3 months old from my old TS-439 Pro. You can no longer have offsite backups with these new storage pool devices.

These new Qnap units mandate that you use RAID and give you no choice of using a plain Linux/Unix ext4/3/2 partitions. They call this the Storage Pool which allows you to aggregate many disk and assign a logical volume to them. Indeed very handy and useful; but only if one needs it. This new Storage Pool is essentially a forced use of an ext4 only partition on the primary data partition and ext2 on the smaller system partitions with LVM (Logical Volume Manager) slapped on top of the ext2/4 partitions and finally encapsulated in a RAID array. Even if you format the disk as a single disk, it is still a RAID array. If this Qnap unit dies, you cannot take the disk out and slap them into any Linux/Unix machine and get access to your data. You’ll have to get familiar with mdadm commands and reconstruct the RAID array and you can do that only if your SATA controller on the new machine supports RAID. A royal PIA!!!

I’m a prior owner of a Qnap TS-439 Pro that does not have the storage pool implementation and I used this as a backup server primarily. I then had two other disks in the device part-time that contained a mirror copy of the primary drive. One was kept in a fireproof safe and backed up every weekend. The other was an off-site backup that I kept at my parents’ house. With 1TB of data, the cloud was not an option. This offsite backup was actually two disks that I alternated every 1 to 3 months. I used command line rsync to keep these drives updated and everything worked beautifully.

If you are looking for a hot-swap unit to manage backups, these new Qnap units are certainly not for you. You have to keep your drives in this thing 100% of the time and cannot take them out. I am now building a Linux (CentOS) hot-swap server for my house. Using a Corsair 550D case and an Icy Dock hot swap cage, this is replacing my Qnap.
