I would have to get 2 larger more expensive drives to get close to the 192gig of space... The idea of SSD's in a NAS is not for speed..I am aware of this, its more trying to be green, and try to cut down on the failure rate. a NAS never gets shut down. Spinning 24/7, will be like a server. If I can cut down on the failure rate, that would be great. However, having a SSD NAS device would make the access all that much faster, and the access latency would almost me non existent with 30 people pounding away at it. It would not matter if someone had a 1.5 gig PST file on it, its going to be fast no matter what...

Don't worry about being green..... the 6-10w difference won't make a difference.

Will people be accessing the NAS 24/7? If not, you can set it so disk spin down after a few minutes.

Again, what kind of data and is the network infrastructure? Have you accounted for concurrency issues? Will be it small file access?

If you care about reliability and uptime, I would be looking at RAID6 with a hot spare instead of just SSDs.

EDIT: If RAID5 HDDs today have no issues keeping up, then there is no real performance going with a SSDs other than reliability. However, a RAID6 (hot spare optional) with HDDs would still be much more reliable and capable of sustaining multiple disk failure.

NAS do have an OS.

Has the durability/reliability of SSD's really been proven over HDD's?

If it's a fun project where cost is not a concern, then go ahead--I don't think TRIM will be supported though--but realize that there are both cheaper and more reliable solutions.

When considering this is for work, I'd seriously hesitate relying on a NAS as opposed to a full-blown appropriately configured file server.
