  • ASUSTOR NAS 華芸 Online RAID Migration

    Upgrade on the fly

    After using your NAS for a while you may be looking to upgrade the RAID level of your storage volumes in order to reap the benefits of increased data protection. However, you may be a bit apprehensive due to concerns about backing up or migrating your data. ASUSTOR understands your needs, and provides you with online RAID migration which lets you migrate your storage volume's RAID level to a higher one while your NAS is still online. Your NAS remains completely operational and you will have full access to your files while migration is ongoing.

    Advantages of RAID migration

    ASUSTOR's RAID migration provides you with a variety of flexible deployment options. If you are on a tight budget and don't want to buy a complete set of hard disks along with your NAS, you can just buy one or two disks according to your needs. Later, when your storage needs require it, you can choose to buy more disks and adjust your RAID level accordingly.

    For example, if you started with an AS-606T NAS model (maximum capacity of six disks) and hoped to have a storage volume that could support one faulty disk then you might first purchase two hard disks in order to create a RAID 1 volume. Later, when your storage needs increase, you can add another hard disk to the volume and migrate the original RAID 1 level to RAID 5, giving you additional storage space.
