Hey folks, Looking at putting together a decent performing mini server using a Xeon 1540D processor. The case that I am using will only have 4 3.5 Bays so I prefer to use higher capacity drives. With respect to the 4TB and 6TB drives that are available the price difference between say WD, HGST and Seagate Enterprise drives arent that large. Initially I was concerned about noise but now I am thinking that it might just make sense to dump one of these drives into a closet and use powerline to connect. I plan to run some VM's on the server itself so would like decent performance for those instances. Some drives I've looked at are: WD Red HGST Desktar NAS Seagate Enterprise NAS Seagate Enterpreise Capicity Any thoughts on these drives? I plan to use a ZFS setup.
