Ok so after much debating I'm thinking FreeNAS is not for me. I think going to an 8 drive RAID6 array is my best option because I can use my Perc 6i instead of spending $100+ on an IBM ServerRAID 1015 and I also dont have to worry about using ECC Memory (even though I know it's not required for FreeNAS). The question now is, what is the best OS for me to use for both media streaming purposes and VM storage/backups?
