    Not too familiar with these NAS units. Is the software to RAID come with this unit or can you just use the Win Server disk management to do it?

    ^ The NAS handles RAID itself, no client side software is needed to maintain the RAID volumes and you install the BlackArmor app to discover (it on the LAN) & configure it. It is a separate logical system on the network, Win Disk Management will not be used.

    Clients either install the Blackarmor software to access it or a feature can be enabled to allow access through a browser per each user account, including remote access over the internet.
