  1. Small update on the lack of updates: This is taking a while...
  2. Cost me 0$ and 0£ € however...
  3. Just ordered all the materials for the upgrade, so new system will be running this hardware: Server: Supermicro Server 6017R-NRF4+ CPU: 2x Intel XEON E5-2650v1 RAM: 24x 8GB 1600 DDR3 ECC RDIMM (192GB) SSD: 2x 512GB Samsung 850 Pro HBA: SAS 9200-8E HBA NIC: Dual port 10G SFP+ NIC JBOD: SC847 E16-RJBOD1 HDD1: 37x 4TB ST4000DM000 Seagate Desktop Drive HDD2: 8x 4TB ST4000NM0033 Seagate Constellation ES Drive The new server will run EXSi of USB. The 2 SSD's will be set up in RAID 1 to server as the ESXi datastore. I will be running a FreeNAS VM with 8 cores and 160GB RAM allocated to it with the HBA in passthrough mode. There will be 2 pools, one with the desktop drives and one with the enterprise drives The desktop drive pool will be 3 vdev's of 12 drives each in RAID-Z2. The enterprise drive pool will be 1 vdev of 8 drives in RAID-Z2 The remaining 4TB desktop will be a hot-spare. I may still buy a extra small SSD for the ZIL. This will bring the ranking TB's to 176TB excluding hot-spare with 44 drives giving me 666 storage ranking points! Server of the Beast!
  4. not that loud really, I mean, its in the basement for a reason but not bad.
  5. Hate to break it to ya but I'm also planning a little update. ESX will stay the same. Current NAS node will also become ESX, I have just bought 2x 2660 v2 for that and 128GB of ram As for the NAS, I bought a 1U supermicro, I'm not sure which CPU's I'll run on them, probably 2x E5-2630 with 192GB of ram. Also buying 8 more 4TB drives.
  6. My compliments to Dublin Airport, best airport WiFi so far. 

  7. awesome, just what i needed to hear, Jottacloud it is
  8. I had looked at jottacloud but I dont like this part of their Terms: 15. FAIR AND ACCEPTABLE USE All use of the Jotta Products and Services shall be in accordance with the principles and objectives as outlined in the Agreement and in accordance with applicable statutory laws and regulations. Individual Users with an unlimited subscription plan may use the Service for normal individual usage. Although Jotta does not limit bandwidth or storage on Unlimited Subscription plans, we reserve the right to limit excessive abuse. The Users total storage and network usage may be deemed excessive if your usage greatly exceeds the average usage of Jotta customers. As an example, we would define storage consumption over 10 TB as excessive and beyond the scope of normal usage. Again, I will be storing at least 75TB
  9. Hey, I'm looking for a online backup provider. I was with livedrive where I had a contract for €3,95 a month giving me unlimited storage for unlimited amount of devices, not even with a fair use policy. But they stopped offering that service. So I'm now looking for a new fast backup service that is unlimited for a good price, don't necessarily need the unlimited devices just the unlimited storage for my 150TB NAS.
  10. Just to let you all know, I have bought a SuperMicro 6017R-N3RF4+ put my nas system in. I plan to buy another 8 8TB drives soon which will get me well over 200TB
  11. What is your server for?

  12. About 80TB, not actually on crash plan but comparable service.
  13. Nope, it's a 36.4gb scsi drive (not SAS but the one before SAS ) Still to exercise, 3 years back I bought 300GB models for that price.
  14. Clean and format it using diskpart: The guide is for a USB problem but same can be used to properly format a HDD or SSD.
