Hello good people of Linus tech tips forum
First of all. I am not well versed in building and setting up a NAS. I have built my own computer but have not built a NAS yet.
I am looking into building a NAS running Free NAS. This NAS is for backing up between 10 and 15 dirrerent computers. Only 3 of them have more then 2TB of HDD space.
The specs of the machine will be very close to Tek syndicate's NAS (https://teksyndicate.com/videos/our-new-nas-build-40-tb-64-gb-ecc-ram) or LTT NAS https://youtu.be/KYBok-XGsKM
ASRock C2750 Intel Avaton Motherboard: http://amzn.to/1CWyWTH
4 TB HDDs: 12x http://amzn.to/1S3rqgs
64 GB Intelligent Memory Unbuffered ECC Ram: 4x http://amzn.to/1HIAq9t
case, to be determined
Cooler Master V650: http://amzn.to/1HIABSn
10,000 mb/s network card (maybe, depending if people think its required in the comments below)
Underlined items is what i have changed from original specs
I have looked into FreeNAS but I am not sure if it can do everything that i want it to do. This is why I am enquiring on the forums.
I have watched Windels video on Free NAS (https://teksyndicate.com/videos/freenas-9-software-tutorial-overview-one)
Here are some of the things it must do.
must store data over a long time (5-10 years) without the data degrading. (bitrot prevention/correction)
must allow both storage of data and back up of both Mac and Windows computers
must allow individual datasets to be encrypted and password protected to only allow authorised personnel to access the data.
video streaming would be nice (plex media server?)
I hope you can help me with this project.
feel free to recommend other hardware or software
