I know it seems so crazy today, but in 20 years there will probably be 80TB drives for sale. And we will complain about how small they are. I remember back in late 80's a certain aerospace defense company have a 1TB server setup and it was impressive to say the least. Today that fits into a 2.5" drive that only needs the power of a USB port.
Case: Xcase 424S
I am not super proud of my current setup, but its coming along and does what I need it to.
WD 4TB Black (System)
WD 4TB MyBook (on my desk)
Mediasoninc 4-bay Enclosure:
2x 2TB WD Green
2x 1.5TB Samsung
Total of 15 TB Storage.
I still want to upgrade to 4x WD Greens in RAID 5, but for now this will do for my old system's storage drives.
Case: Lian-Li PC393B
PSU: Corsair 650TX
Motherboard: MSI Something. Just a cheap $50 board.
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 3.0ghz
RAM: 8gb Mushkin
Controller Cards: RocketRaid 3530
Optical Drives: 5x Blu-Ray Samsung Drives
Hard Drives: 9 x 3TB Hitachi GST Deskstar 0S03230
Operating System: Windows 7
Its a nice setup - but to post in here you should have 10TB+ in a SINGLE system
nice case, nice build. How do you like unRaid?
Hi guys been a long time lurker but never put up my system until now.
4x x-case 5-into-3 hd caddys
2x E5530 Quad Xeons (2.4ghz)
Modified so now near silent
120gb OCZ Solid 3 (Win Server 2008 boot drive)
11x Samsung 2TB
2x Hitachi 2TB
1x Samsung 1TB
1x Hitachi 1TB
2x Seagate 3TB (Backup sit on shelf)
Each drive is currently configured as JBOD as seemed easier at the time to manage backup of my media files. (i.e lose a 10th of my data and i can see what ive lost and replace.)
Tempted to move to RAID but not sure which way to go? Any suggestions
Currently its in place as my fileserver/Game server. Want to change to VMWARE but dont want to risk fudging up my current config!
Current Capacity - 34TB - WOW Never worked that out before :s
Mine is 14TBs. 4x2TBs + 2x3TBs, in a storage spaces mirror configuration, formatted to ReFS with integrity streams (checksums files vs. just meta-data), running on Win 2012 Server Standard. Houses my collection of 170 Blu-ray remuxes (no downsampling).
If you want your name on the board, the following are required.
- Pictures of your actual systems (not a screenshot of disk management)
- Full system specs
- Post format must follow the example post
- Obviously you must have more storage than #20 on the list
Once you are ready to be considered for a spot on the board, make a post and send me a PM with the link.
Make sure you have the storage amounts in bold text and at the front of your post
Your post should include the following information. Try to keep it in the same order.
Amount of total storage (if posting multiple systems)
Amount of storage in the following system
GPU (if discrete)
Controller Cards (if any)
Hard Drives (include full model number)
Battery Backup Units (if any)
(A short paragraph here describing what you use your storage for and how you handle backups and organizing would be nice.)
