Hi! Thanks for the responses. It´s more a question of is there an advantage to run multiple instances or one big one. But since i wont get more traffic, or actually i have 3 IP addresses but more then 3 would be no benefit then. More then that there is no point then.
The setup disk wise is a 34x 6TB SAS Drives drives in RAID60 plus hotspares, and that wont really change since this is used for some other stuff but 80% free so might aswell put it to good use. Drives are not what will tank my uptime. Or the hardware for that matter.
So I guess my best option is to start at 5 TB and expand when it starts to get full till i run out if space.
Any ideas on how long the data can be unavailable before it gets tagged as lost? If we have a node with 50tb and that has multiple disk failures and goes down. It would be at least 1 day to actually restore that data, but if you get suspended due to data not being available for 1 day. then there is no point for me to actually do backups of that data.
I think the most important thing here is availability, sure storage and bandwidth is a necessity. But the uptime is what’s going to be the struggle. So time to go on ebay and get some new UPSes. Even though we haven’t seen a power outage in my area for about 2 years now.
For Link failure. Say main connection goes down, we automatically switch over to the 4G backup connection. So data is not unavailable but bandwidth goes from 1000Mbit to about 40Mbit, I am assuming it comes down to luck if we get an audit then or not.
