    SSD stick

    While I'm not overly involved in that, All usb Sticks are SSD... So I think you may just be looking at a gimick to get sales, it may have a faster controller etc. but it's still just a USB stick.

    [H]ard Forum Storage Showoff Thread {2017}

    Nice, I looked at the 10TB but they were just to pricey so I think my max build will be using 6, maybe 8 TB drives. got a case which will hold 15 easily so the goal is over 100TB usable :)

    Hardware Vs. Software for larger servers?

    After some more digging I think this may be best option https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B004JPUZWU/sr=1-1/qid=1325791539/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid=1325791539&sr=1-1 5x8TB in Raid 5 would give a pretty good single

    Hardware Vs. Software for larger servers?

    Been trying to catch up on all this. And it would seem port multipliers are getting bigger Are these supported by most motherboards now or is a card needed?

    Latest guide or site for Large Cap storage?

    I hate being the guy to ask a question that's been asked 100 times. But I'm looking to get a 24 bay norco, and want to set it up with a raid and expansion ability. 4TB HDDs, with expansion. Googling gets results from 2012. I know at one time a member on here had guides for this...

    Homemade UPS?

    Homemade UPS?

    Hmm, yeah I'm thinking of that, the grid tie solar buckup packs, I'm just unsure if they are instant support. Most grid tie systems switch over, so there would be down time. killing everything.

    Homemade UPS?

    I'm looking for a device, which I can put in my home, and wire to Deep cycle batteries. Tie to the house power. And run a power bar for my server/internet pc, etc. Something that can be expanded for more time. All google seems to find me is half assed basterdized versions.

    I've got poor net access, I can use netflix, but it seems most of these add-ons are unable to dumb themselves down enough for me. 1channel worked, along with others. But wishing I had better internet for sure! If you have a huge database, pseudotv is great!
