Ive never heard of unRAID before until now, it does sound like an interesting route in terms of setting up your RAID. Do keep me posted with your build, would be interesting to know how it plans out! At the moment i have a N54L with a P410 using X4 500GB disks in RAID5 & a 120GB SSD boot disk. I used to use it with xpenology and streamed movies around the house but after focusing more on my day job and dealing with servers i got Windows Server 2008 R2 Std on it and currently setting to run it as a data/Plex server. :D

zandermichaeljason

Cheers for the response - Took a look around on the web and it looks like 16TB (4*4TB) was the biggest at the time of manufacturing so that's all they can officially say (y)

KOLIBERk

It's working fine, but I have 4x 6TB REDs in two mirrors, so its two 5.9TB volumes.

mikebuzz

OOS

GadgetHunter

Don't worry - I do understand all the RAID options (0,1, 10, 5, 6, synology's SHR, etc.) pretty well. :-) With unRAID it uses one or more parity disks for resilience. I currently have one 4Tb parity disk and one 4Tb data disk. I didn't want to get 3x4tb disks initially, as this is my first NAS and I wanted to see how much use I would actually make of it. If I do make a lot of use of it then I will start adding extra data disks. The downside of the parity approach is that real time calculation of the parity means that data transfer rates fall from about 112Mb sec (I assume that this is limited by the 1 Gbit network) to about 40 Mb sec if transferring more than 1 or 2 Gb. unRAID allows you to use a caching disk to resolve this issue. I have already installed a 512Gb disk in the top slot on the microserver but I will only enable this once I have copied over the bulk of the data to unRAID. (As I understand it once I enable the cache disk the most data that I can write in a day to unRAID will be the size of the caching disk - as by default it only flushes once per day at 3:40am. I assume that I can change this to flush more regularly but I cannot see that I will be writing more than 512Gb per day once the NAS is fully up and running with all my data on it.)

On the website it says maximum 16TB, does that mean I can only put 4*4TB HDDs into this server?

Thanks Mike, I have a couple of Servers here at the mo but they are HP Ml110 old and a Dell T100 (DDR2 ram) both Xeon but neither quick enough to run Plex or the latest ESXi currently it's on 5.5 (Dell)

mikehunt69

In that case you are better off building something yourself based on a Skylake chip on a motherboard that has 4 DIMM slots. That way you can go up to 64GB of RAM. When you buy memory, get 16GB DIMMs even if you start with 1 or 2, that way you have options. I built a lab the learn the VMware vRealize suite and ended up having to go to 96GB of RAM on a Xeon E5 chip in a socket 2011 motherboard. Take below and add a case and PSU. If it's going to be on all the time, best get a PSU with decent efficiency as it will pay for itself eventually. http://www.ebuyer.com/766089-intel-celeron-g3930-2-90ghz-socket-1151-2mb-retail-boxed-processor-bx80677g3930 http://www.ebuyer.com/786296-asus-intel-b150m-pro-gaming-micro-atx-motherboard-b150m-pro-gaming https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/B150M-PRO-GAMING/HelpDesk_CPU/

Would this cope with a plex server running mainly local movies and also a windows server 2008 via ESXi 6.5 after upgrading the processor ? Thanks

I've got http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_416057.html (with KODI running as an app) which will be future proof for at least a couple years and I don't need to run a more powerful CPU which would increase the electricity bill. I have 3 torrent disks which run 24/7 without any spin down and I have configured other disks which store data to turn off after a couple hours. All the benefits and no disadvantages :)

pjazzy

I have a gen 7 and the extra space at the top is real handy. The processor is too slow for any decent transcoding though which is why I am looking at the gen 8 since you can at least upgrade the CPU, choices choices (skeptical)

It's a little weak in all areas to be running that. Better value with other servers for your needs. Just my 2p

Got the old proliant server running with Win Server 2012. Been able to extend the license of the trial version to date - but now hit the maximum number of times you can do it. Seems I now have to purchase it, or wipe the server clean, and do a fresh install. Have you purchased yours - or also using trial version? Anyone aware of any way to extend it further? Workarounds online do not work. PS. I assume if I just remove the 'data' drives, and do a fresh install on my SSD (OS drive) then I can just plug my data drives back in and I am away to go? Trying to find the easiest way around this - not paying 500+ for server 2012!
