Re: disk failure -- my next NAS is most likely going to use a RAID 6 array. With 4 data disks and 2 parity disks, it should be able to withstand having one disk fail, and another disk fail during the time it takes to reimage the replacement for the first disk. Which means that your data is safe unless 3 disks fail within a 24 hour window.
