The drives are still good thou.
What NAS should I buy now?


+ spinning up a box with freenas takes quite alot of power too :/

@selea just get a shitty Intel Atom, should do the job fine. Recent ones are quad core, or more.

@selea looks nice yeah, I wanna roll my own Ryzen Mini ITX some day for this reason


that would be really neat to have!
I should upgrade my old machine..

@selea yeah something like a quad or hexacore with 4 GB of RAM should be plenty for SoftRAID. ZFS or LVM? 🤔


i heard good stuff from synology - but i'm also heavily pulled towards rolling my own freeNAS... decisions, decisions 🤷
