Hello,

I'm looking at a lot of solutions - thunderbolt 2, LSI, NAS or a PC with 12 4TB drives. What it comes down to is my need for a large amount of storage (4TB drives in each bay), excellent redundancy as I won't be backing it up, very good speed, and a nearly silent raid solution. I'm used to just buying dell arrays for work servers as there is no need to worry about noise in a server room. I've built all of my PCs to be nearly silent from a few feet away despite the high end processor and video cards and 8 drives in each.

I would definitely appreciate any experience you care to share as it may greatly reduce my research time on an ideal solution for my needs.

Thanks - if I built a PC instead of buying some sort of dedicated array, I think I'd go with the COSMO II although who knows when the Cosmos III will be out.

THanks - I don't know much about options for quiet external arrays or NAS devices but I could build an entire new PC/server for about $4k
