Redundant file sharing architecture - stygre - 10-19-2018

Hi everyone ,

I need your advice to mount a redundant/secure file sharing architecture to store large archives (files larger than 50 GB).

I already have the following equipments :
      - N7700 PRO V2 - Firmware 2.05.06.v2 - 7*4To 5400rpm
      - N7700 - Firmware 5.03.02.8 - 7*4To 7200rpm

What I want to do:
      - Create a RAID 5 XFS (strip size 64 KB) on the N7700 PRO V2 to have a space of 22TB
      - Create a shared folder of 22TB on the N7700 PRO V2
      - Create a RAID 5 XFS (strip size 64 KB) on the N7700 to have a space of 22TB
      - Create a shared folder of 22TB on the N7700
      - Configure the N7700 PRO V2 to replicate the shared folder on the N7700

Not knowing the technical limits of the N7700 and N7700 PRO V2 very well, here are my questions:
      - Is it possible to create a shared folder of 22TB on the N7700 and N7700 PRO V2 (there is a maximum size?)
      - How and where can I configure N7700 PRO V2 replication to the N7700 for the folder?

If you also have remarks, I am open to your good advice.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Sir,

1. N7700 V5.x RAID volume support up to 16TB only. N7700PRO V2.x without this limiation.
2. N7700 have RSYNC module, and N7700PRO V2 remote DATAGUARD base on RSYNC too, thus you may try on this way.
3. N7700 & N7700PROV2 both over 6 years even more old, thus NAS hardware lifetime is another concern point for your reference.
