I am looking for a device for my mother for redundant storage of her photos. Local (non-cloud) based is a requirement.
I would prepare the device for her in a RAID 1+0 (at least 4 drives, striped no parity with mirroring) in advance, then ship it to her (lives in another state).
She will plug it in via USB 3.0 and thinks it is "one drive" and be unconcerned about drivers or configuration. Ideally if one port ever lit up red as going or gone bad, I can just send her a new drive and she swaps it out and it rebuilds without her having to do anything.
Any recommendations for a product like this? I imagine configuration would be via a network port web server or special application that talks over the same USB connection. Either of those would be fine.
I do not want a NAS that has to make a network drive connection, it must be direct attached.
