Both biggrin.gif

I've 10 drives of varying sizes from Nas Bays and Desktops to go into it, so there's a third of the bays accounted for already. 700 DVD Movie Rips a lot of which I want to replace with HD versions once I have the space plus 300+ Bluray rips and counting. 180 TV shows over a half of which are ongoing. Family of 7 all with different tastes in TV and Film that we want to consolidate into one centralised location both physically and from a software perspective. XBMC with Library sharing to make library management of 5x dedicated xbmc client machines, 4x Desktops, 3x laptops, 2x Tablets and 7x Smartphones a lot easier.

I then thought it would be pretty cool with the advent of SteamOS and Game-Streaming etc to consolidate 1080p modern gaming capability for the part time gamers into a gameserver turning all the XBMC clients into Powerful gaming PC clients too. No more snatching gaming time on family members Gaming Desktops while they're at work. Co-locating that capability in the Media Server went from a cool thought experiment into a viable proposition with news of 8 Core Haswell-E.

Of course it would be a lot easier to build dedicated machines in their own Chassis' and probable no more expensive given the minimum price of an 8 Core Haswell-E system, but where would the fun be in that?? biggrin.gif

With this much media, what is your back-up plan? I have as much media or more than you plan on having, and I have it all backed up at three different places.
I didn't go the route you are with my file server. Since I have a basement with space to put in a rack, I went with a 4U server chassis that I have in the rack 12U rack I bought.

Flexraid with dual parity drives. No backup. If worse comes to worst I'll replace the Rips with downloads for those rips I don't feel like doing again and rip again those that warrant it where I couldn't source a download that matches the quality I originally ripped at.
