I am in need of a solution for my PRIVATE server. It's an OLDER DELL server that I want to use simply for storage. I have tried the Free solutions that a lot of people say are "THE BEST" and the results have been catastrophic at best. I have LOST so much data due to the fact that their software does not support the HARDWARE raid in the system I have. I have lost over 200k files and feel like you get what you pay for now. SO.. Here I am.. I do not need a $3000 solution just need the OS to run a FTP server and be able to handle up to 24 drives on a HARDWARE raid setup. What do you guys suggest that I run on that unit. I do need something that is dependable as my data is important to me and can not be messing with corrupt drives due to poor programming and excuses. Sorry for the sharp tone but I am so over the FREE solutions of that really do not work. I mean a FREE RedHat if such a thing exists might be acceptable if there is one.. Thank you all in advance.
