I have a NAS ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network-attached_storage ) built
on a cheap atom board with 3 disk raid5 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID ).
I use it to store everything there, but it could be used only for backup,
remaining off the rest of the time.

Raid5 allows for any one of the disks in the array to fail without data
loss. The disk has to be replaced then in order to maintain the security of
the array, should any other disk be failing. <- was this correct in english?

It doesn't give you fire-proof security as the other solutions, but I find
it confortambe to manage.
