FreeBSD NAS 24Tb ZFS on a budget
Previously I did a quick post on a 24Tb budget NAS server I was testing, since then the components have be put into a 4u case and will be going into a rack for testing. Before I screwed the lit on I thought I’d take a few more photos to show what you can do on a tight budget if you need load of space and a resilient disk array. In this case ZFS is our friend.
- 9 x WD Green 3Tb hard disks
- 2 x WD Blue 500Gb (OS mirror).
- Gigabyte Z68-D3-B3,
- 3 x 2 port RocketRaid PCI express cards (come with the 3Tb disks)
- 8Gb RAM
Stay tuned for the test results!
