I´m looking for possible solution for a network storage for the family. Just access of media library, backup of pictures, phones and laptops. No need for heavy tasks, mainly storage.
Looking at the existing solution (WD mycloud) and I am not impressed with the stability, the speed. Not really interested in expanding that solution. So after looking at an old LTT video (Reliable Data Storage on the Cheap!)
I was wondering what would be the "minimum requirements" with regards to CPU and RAM you guys would recommend?
From a local website I found a HP Proliant ML350 G5 (E5420 CPU with 2x 1GB RAM and 4 disks (unknown size)) for 65 USD.
Would hardware like this to the job? I would guess a little more RAM would be to prefer? I have never built a computer/server like this before, and have absolutely no idea about what hardware that is required for this "simple" task.
Your advice would much appreciated
