    "6TB hard drives in RAID 0, the F4-422 offers read and write speeds of up to 650MB/s and 670MB/s, respectively."

    What good is that if you are 4x as likely to lose EVERYTHING on your entire NAS for the speed increase. RAID 0 is absolutely the most insecure storage method possible. Might as well just use 4 separate discs in JBOB mode.

    You could say that same arguement about using just one NAS, what if the NAS motherboard fails?

    RAID is only for redundancy, NOT a backup.

    Cannot be said enough. 1-2-3 your data.

    No harm in RAID 0 a NAS if you follow the 1-2-3 approach.

    Yes sure if you are a professional business or rich... not many personal home users can afford to duplicate 40-50TB of disc content.
    Most just use a RAID1/RAID5 or whatever as the security system so if one disc fails they don't lose everything.
    Only the rich (maybe in America, the land of the cheap mass market hardware) can afford an entire separate copy of large amounts of disc storage.

    Nothing to do with cost at all if you follow the principle.

    I would argue not many home users should have 40-50TB of disc content.......

    If you can afford to have the data, you can afford to back it up.
