  24. 24. RAID Introduction •What is RAID? •Why do I need RAID? RAID is to group multiple hard drives which you install in the system, and gain a pool of storage resources  Create a single large volume  Gain more system performance *  Gain redundancy * * Depends on RAID mode
  25. 25. RAID RAID 1 (Mirroring) • Disk Mirroring: Duplicate the data between two hard disks • Use 2 hard disks • System capacity = ½ of Raw Capacity • Redundancy: Allow 1 hard disk failure
  26. 26. RAID RAID 5 • Minimum use 3 disks to compose a RAID 5 • System capacity = Raw capacity – 1 x HDD’s capacity, (N-1) x ___ TB • Redundancy: Allow 1 hard disk failure at the same time Example: 4 x 4TB used for a RAID 5  Total system capacity = 12TB / 4TBx (4-1) = 12TB  You invest 1 HDD’s capacity. It allows 1 HDD failure at the same time
  27. 27. RAID RAID 6 • Minimum use 4 disks to compose a RAID 6 • System capacity = Raw capacity – 1 x HDD’s capacity, (N-2) x ___ TB • Redundancy: Allow 2 hard disk failure at the same time Example: 6 x 4TB used for a RAID 6  Total system capacity = 16TB / 4TBx (6-2) = 16TB  You invest 2 HDD’s capacity. It allows 2 HDD failure at the same time
  28. 28. RAID Hot Spare Drive • Specify a hard disk as the “stand by” one. In case of any hard disk failure in the RAID group, the hot spare drive will automatically join and replace the failure disk One extra spare drive investment is required
  29. 29. RAID Other RAID mode •Other mode: (Reference. Can skip) • RAID 0: Faster performance. No disk redundancy • JBOD: The data are written to the physical disks sequentially. No disk redundancy • RAID 10: Group multiple RAID 1 (Mirroring) to a single large volume. System capacity = ½ of raw capacity invested. Widely used in media editing and business storage applications
  30. 30. RAID Recap Popular Setup for Surveillance Storage • RAID 1 (Mirroring) is popular for 2 bay systems  Invest 1 hard disk; ½ capacity. Allows 1 failure • RAID 5 is economic choice for a single large volume  Invest 1 hard disk; (N-1) x TB. Allows 1 failure at the same time • RAID 6 is the mode giving higher redundancy  Invest 2 hard disk; (N-2) x TB. Allows 2 failure at the same time
  31. 31. RAID Recording Capacity? Required storage capacity depends on: • Codec (ex. H.264) • The resolution and frame rate to count • Numbers of cameras • How long is it required to keep the recordings? 4 Cameras 9 Cameras 16 Cameras 1-Month 2.52TB 6.33TB 10.96TB Example*: Make a RAID 1 by 3TB HDD x2 (=3TB) Make a RAID 5 by 3TB HDD x4 (= 9TB) Make a RAID 5 by 4TB HDD x4 (=12TB) * Vary by different factor. Need to calculate case by case
  32. 32. RAID Supported RAID on the System Which RAID mode does it support? • QNAP NAS:  RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID5, RAID6, RAID10, RAID 5 + Spare, RAID6 + Spare, JBOD, Single Disk • QNAP NVR:  RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID5, RAID6, RAID 5 + Spare, RAID6 + Spare, JBOD, Single Disk
  33. 33. RAID RAID = Backup? RAID is not a backup • If it is a primary storage. Leverage the feature to back up to external side, to another NAS, to another server, or to the cloud QNAP NAS Windows Mac Linux LAN Switch Primary Backup Internet QNAP NAS FTP Server Cloud Storage Provider WAN Real-time Replication FTP Server Router Cloud Storage Secondary Backup
  34. 34. Hard Drives Type and Capacity • What kind of hard drives should I choose?  SATA drives  SAS drives  SSD drives • Economic choice for large capacity. Low Per TB cost • Reliable choice for enterprise storage. • Higher speed. Higher cost • How big is the storage capacity?  Each drive bay supports up to 4TB (the max capacity of a SATA disk*)  System’s total raw capacity will be 4TB x n  The real capacity will depend on which RAID mode to be configured * At the time of writing
  35. 35. Hard Drives Supported type of drives • SATA drives are the current mainstream  Most of the SMB NASes, NVR, and external disk are using SATA drives  SATA is the ideal storage media for surveillance applications SATA SATA • SAS drives are widely used in enterprise environment  SAS drives are only supported by limited high-end systems  The SAS supported system can support both SAS and SATA drives SAS
  36. 36. Hard Drives Quality and Compatibility • Quality v.s. Price  Why there are always some systems with the hard drives installed, are sold at such low price? * Be aware of what kind of hard drives they are using !!! • Which drives are compatible with my storage system?  Always check the compatibility list on manufacturer’s website  Or buy the pre-configured/ hard drives installed SKU sold by manufacturer
  37. 37. Hard Drives Choose the right hard drives • Hard drives brands  Seagate  Main player  Western Digital  Main player  Hitachi (Merged by Western Digital)  Toshiba
  38. 38. Hard Drives Choose the right hard drives Enterprise Drives Cloud Drives NAS Drives Surveillance Drives Desktop Drives (Consumer ) •Reliable. •Expensive. •For heavy loading app. •Affordable Enterprise Drives. •Use for 1-5 bay Desktop NAS model. •Can be used in RAID environment. •Not for Rack mount system. •Just available* quality to be verified •Not designed for RAID •Not designed for 24x7 •Widely adopt by cheaper storage vendors •Could run into disaster if used for RAID system
  39. 39. Hard Drives Choose the right hard drives Enterprise Drives Cloud Drives NAS Drives Surveillance Drives Desktop Drives (Consumer ) • Seagate: Terascale • WD: Cloud For: Rack mount, and 5-bay or above desktop NAS/ NVR systems 1-5 bay NAS/ NVR systems
