    I'll hugely recommend getting HW raid setup for this (preferably RAID 10 with 4 HDD's) as it will help in redundancy + better IO performance. Rest all seems fine!

    Good luck!

    Is there any specific reason, why you do not need RAID? What will happen in case if drive is failed. Also, with a single drive, you may face the disk IO issue.

    Get at least RAID1 on it to have some redundancy.
