Part 2 of my NAS build for my lab / home use. As built it has about 30TB of usable storage. I plan to add an additional 24TB when I finish moving over my data and services from my old UNRAID server
A quick intro to the project and it’s goals. Building a 4U Nas for my lab to replay my R410 running Unraid. 15 drives mostly 8TB SAS drives I got from a client that was decommissioning some Storage arrays and had tons of brand new spares.
Quick video for those starting their home labs covering a very common question in the /r/homelab subreddit, “What Operating System should you use in your lab? Windows, Linux, Mac?” I very briefly discuss hypervisors and their benefits.
Today I decided to start a new web series on home labs. It’s designed for home lab enthusiasts, who like to get their hands dirty learning cool new tech. The first video is just an introduction to the content. Look out for more!
