post #731 of 4358
i have been slowly working my server up.

Re-added the second hdd cage and moved the existing drives to it. Planning on running a raid 5 with 3 2tb drives in the spare hdd rack.

Hardware consists of:

Lian Li V1200
AMD FX 8150 (won here on OCN)
Gigabyte 990fxa-UD5
8gb Kingston Hyperx 1600
Gigabyte HD 6870 (TC Folding)
Seagate 500gb - OS Drive
2x Seagate 1tb - One for Backups Currently and One for Data.
Blu-Ray reader for ripping down the road.
Corsair TX650 - MDPC Sleeving.

This is mainly used for video streaming to my itx rig, TC folding, NAS, Backups

Im planning on expanding its use later.

Hi folks,

My machines almost always run Linux so they are all servers in their own right smile.gif

As a server-role only PC's I two file-backup servers with 4 Hitachi 1TB hdd's each. Old stuff one is a AMD dual core Athlon the other a P4.
They both boot from usb flash and one has Ubuntu 9 and the other OpenSuSE 11.3.

Both flash installs are quite different but they all make the same thing: Mount a simple nfs share on the Hitachi hdd's.

They are almost always shutdown so I only use them to really backup my data once weekly, sometimes once a month.

The trick is both machines have encrypted hard-drives AND Software RAID10 configurations.
So after booting any of the machine I login over ssh and mount the encrypted RAID 10 filesystem.

This is the Safest setup from both Hardware and Software.

But what really brings me to this discussion is my usual File Server, Bitorrent, ftp, image sharing etc server:

http://www.excito.com/

I have the old Bubba Two that is an amazing Machine!

Their new Bubba 3 server is Awsome!

I consider that stuff as the Best home File Server in the Market today.
Solutions like the Pico server are not as good as they rely on External USB hdd's.

The Bubba Two is now out of production but it still run it sometimes 24/7 for weeks in a row.
Never had a single failure.

The new Bubba 3 however is simply Awsome. The only downside to it is the price.
But if you live in an area were the electricity price is very high it can pay itself in a single year just on the energy savings when compared to a high powered PC-like build.

And the way it looks is simply Jaw-dropping! Excellent! It is simply a bit bigger then an external 3.5'' hdd case. But much better looking.

So if someone is looking for a excellent low-power, almost completely silent solution ...Bubba is the way to go.


Regards.

My only complaint with a set up like this, and the backblaze...is they are not designed to run as a standalone. They use slow sata port multipliers, instead of any kind of raid controller. Backblaze designed these pods to replication between pods, not between drives inside a pod. Yes, you can do UnRaid or something and be just fine...but I'm more of a hardware raid kinda guy.

The main beef I have with a case like that is that you have to put them on a rail (and quite a strong one) to be able to slide the whole thing out just to change a failed drive. Cases with hot-swap bays will never die. The drives look too close together to be cooled. The cases seem way too expensive for just being a piece of sheet metal. There are no hot-swap trays or anything, so they are way overpriced.

Exactly! It's not practical in my opinion. If you have that much data, you got to care about it...heat issues is one thing I never want to worry about.

If you need as many drives as possible, I'd invest in some good ole super micro....

Don't forget an extra 4U more of disks attached via SAS cables....smile.gif
