    Which 18TB hardrive should I get?

    I want to upgrade my SnapRAID server parity drives to 18TB and use the 6TB drives that I have now as a striped or JBOD logical 18TB drive for my SnapRAID server. So I'll have 3-4 18TB parity drives for 3-4 18TB Data drives. I am leaning towards just striping them but debating on if the added...
