is it possible to have a second NAS as a hot/warm spare on standby with a running Egnyte keeping that 2nd NAS current?
So in case something happens to the main NAS drive mapping could be changed to the 2nd NAS.
Of course, this should only require only one license of Egnyte Storage Sync as only one NAS can be used by the users.
I know from other services/devices they have a setting to mark a device as hot/warm spare.
Go to Solution.
You can run 2 NAS devices in parallel. The 2nd NAS device will only be upto date if it is syncing constantly to your Egnyte Cloud Server. As far as I know, this is how Egnyte functions as of now.
This means that it will use up 2 licenses of Storage Sync. Once for the NAS in production and the other one for the NAS which will act as the spare one on Standyby.
I hope this answers your question.
