I got canned a few jobs back over an absolutely garbage Buffalo NAS that I had no part in selecting or purchasing. Devel. Director wanted cheap NAS. I showed him cheap NAS. He insisted it be cheaper. I told him anything available at a lower price would be unreliable and dangerous. I was overruled and "The Buffalo" entered my life. For a year and change, I'd get a ping in the AM from a developer. NAS is down, plz reboot. I'd try to log in to the terrible http console, nothing doing, hard power cycle. Told Buffalo about it, they told me that NAS was a SOHO model and we were working it too hard, and it must be too hot in our 62F server room. Fast forward a year and change, and I had a disk RMA in progress. The day before the disk arrives, two other disks fail simultaneously (Well, overnight, but there's no notifications or monitoring). Array is GONE. No mas data, childrens. Advise Director, he blames me. If I weren't already making other working arrangements, I could have fought, but it wasn't worth the stress. I heard that later they replaced the disks, defined the array again (without parity, since they needed the space), and restored the backup. Someday soon I'll hear about the next disk failure and how it took out the whole array, but the new IT guy is in the Devel. Director's band and they are bros, so it'll be quiet.
