Home dirs which are low/medium bandwidth and other low bandwidth data.

Basically 3 individual NFS exports.

Currently served off an Xserve(s)/Xraid(s) so this new server will be  
a boost in both reliability, performance and simplicity in terms of  

And the parity calcs for Raid 6 are taking quite some time, almost  
twice as long as Raid 5, but then again its more robust.

I'm not overly concerned with performance as it will be leaps above  
what we have now.

What I require is reliable bulk storage.
