Personally I want a homelab thread, where people can actually explain and show off their systems/clusters and networks. That's when I'll bother posting my stuff.

That's what I was using this thread for:

Hardware

 

CASE: Supermicro SC846E16-R1200B chassis with BPN-SAS2-846EL SAS 2 backplane

PSU: Supermicro dual PWS-1K21P-1R 1200 watt PSUs

MB: Supermicro X9DRi-LN4F+ dual socket LGA2011 motherboard

CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2670 (SR0H8)

HS: 2x Supermicro SNK-P0048P CPU Coolers

RAM: 192GB ECC Memory (24x 8GB PC3-10600R DIMM)

RAID CARD 1: Supermicro SAS2308 SAS2 HBA (flashed to IT mode, fw 20.00.04.00)

SSD: Samsung SV843 enterprise 960GB

HDD 1: 20x 6TB HGST NAS 7200 RPM

HDD 2: 4x 1.5TB Samsung Ecogreen 5400 RPM

NIC: Mellanox ConnectX 2 - MNPA19-XTR HP 10Gb ethernet (SFP+ DAC cable)

 

Software and Configuration:

The OS is Ubuntu Server 16.04 with ZFS on Linux configured.  I also have samba installed to us for SMB/CIFS/NFS network file sharing.  I will also be using rsync to keep files synchronized between my two NAS systems.  Other than those components there are a few other basics to lock down the system to keep it protected.  Given the CPU and RAM on this system this may end up becoming my primary Plex server to take over for my other NAS.

 

Right now I have no SLOG or L2ARC configured until I do more performance testing.  I've partitioned a little less than half of the Samsung SV843 SSD to be used for either of these tasks.  I realize that a dedicated SSD should be used for this purpose but I don't have many synchronous writes to take advantage of a small SLOG and my system has tons of memory to use for ARC that I think configuring an L2ARC will only detract from performance.

 

My primary zpool is configured as 2 vdevs in raidz2 with 10 disks in each.

The secondary pool will be 1 vdev in raidz with 4 disks.

Both my zpools will be configured with compression=lz4 and only the primary pool will use ashift=12 since it's using 4k drives.

 

Usage:

Backups and media warehouse.  Potentially a new and/or replacement Plex server.  This will be used for other processing of data in the background.

 

Backup:

This is the backup to my other NAS as well as a backup to data on my desktop systems.

 

Additional info:

This is my second large NAS.  The first one is listed earlier in this thread.

The Mellanox 10Gb NICs will be direct connected to each of the NAS systems to allow for higher bandwidth syncs.

Had 32x 850 Pro 2TB drives arrive today.

 

Would be fun to play with them in a massive RAID0 config if I wasn't on a time crunch.

A NAS (qnap) to mimic what we use in development; so that I have something at home to test against since I shouldn't make live changes to our development storage.

 

TL;DR, a bit of both ;)

My company.  I certainly wouldn't be interested in paying for that many disks.

Yayyyy, I can finally join the ranks!

 

Hardware

SERVER 1: IBM x3650 M2

DISK ENCLOSURE: Dell MD1000

CPU: (2x) Intel Xeon L5630

RAM: 96GB ECC DDR3L (6 x 16GB)

RAID CARD 1: HP H221 HBA

HDD 1: 2x 300GB 10k SAS - IBM branded

HDD 2: 14x 1TB SAS - Dell Barracuda ES.2 (Seagate rebrand)

 

Software and Configuration:

The IBM server is running VMware ESXi 6.0, and I have FreeNAS 9.10 running in a VM. The boot drive is

a virtual disk, but the FreeNAS VM has a PCIe passed-through HP H221 HBA (LSI 9207-8E rebrand),

which is then connected to the Dell MD1000 chassis. For those wondering if FreeNAS is able to be

virtualised; if used in this kind of fashion, then yeah totally! There has been many discussions of whether

or not virtualised FreeNAS is recommended, but that's only because people do it wrong. ZFS needs

hardware access to the drives (hence why people use 'IT mode' RAID cards, otherwise known as HBAs,

or host bus adapters) and with used with PCIe passthrough, FreeNAS doesn't know the difference!

 

Anywho, to the storage details xD I have the disks split into two arrays, one RAIDZ2 array of 10 1TB

drives, then another 4 1TB drives in a RAID10.

 

Usage:

The RAIDZ2 array is to be a general purpose NAS. Media, documents and whatever is stored there.

The RAID10 is a dedicated NFS storage array for my hypervisors. I have other servers with various

different hypervisors that are going to use it for shared storage. 

 

Backup:

No backup solution as of yet. Most of us Aussies don't have the luxury of fast connections for mass cloud

backup, so I'm likely leaning toward an LTO-4 tape backup solution for now since it's getting so cheap.

Cloud for important stuff like documents and photos should be fine though.

 

Additional info:

I did have a 15th drive in the arrray as a hotspare for the RAIDZ2, but I had a RAID10 disk failure literally

this week. So I used the hotspare to replace the failed drive, hence the one empty drive bay in the photo.

The whole setup is pretty much brand new. I haven't started loading all of my media to it just yet. My

datahoarding days have only just begun ;)

Ignore the Dell C6100 in the middle, it's not a NAS :( It's a pretty neat piece of kit though! The hypervisors

installed on it's nodes are what I plan on using the NFS RAID10 for.

Software and Configuration:
This is now just a storage server running FreeNAS 9.10.2 that host storage for my ESXI server for those who do not know this is a tier 2 hypervisor put out by VMware!
This allows me to run virtual machines. I eliminated the raid controller because i was not happy with the speed of it and opted to go the route of a esxi server with just a boot drive and have it store VMs to a separate server. this has increased the speed and reliability of my storage this machine can saturate a 1gb link with no problem, the esxi machince has direct 10g connnection to the box.

Usage:


stores the machines that do the following things, host my web server, and media server which is all Linux based setup and my ap controller and network monitor machine running windows 10. it also hold all my other random stuff!

Very jealous. Right now I want to build one where there are different folders for my music (I have a ton of music) My movies (good amount too) and my raw and rendered video files (Have about 350gb) and then a 1tb external drive completely filled (the external drive was purchased in 2012)

Hardware

SERVER: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8

CASE: Stock case

PSU: Stock power supply

MB: Stock motherboard

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2

HS: Stock Passive Heatsink using Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

RAM: 16GB ECC Unbuffered Memory (2x Corsair 8GB PC3L-12800 DIMM)

RAID CARD: HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB

HDD 1: 4x 4TB HGST NAS 7200 RPM

 

Software and Configuration:

For the OS, it’s running the latest version of UnRaid. When I was building it, I was considering using FreeNAS, however the more I read up on ZFS the more I learned about the memory requirements of it. I wanted this machine not just to be a NAS, but also a Plex server and anything else I may need. So, because 16GB was the max amount of RAM that this server can handle my decision was made to use UnRaid with it's lesser memory footprint. For the SSD I had to do some modification to the inside; the server is designed for a DVD drive on top and gives a 4-pin floppy power connector on the top for it. I simply bought a Molex to SATA converter off amazon, cut each of the connectors off, solder them together and applied some heat wrap. I also bought a license of iLO Advance so I can remote into the server at any time including into the bios at startup.

 

Usage:

Home NAS for storing all of my wife’s and my data. Hosting a Plex Server that is serving our Blu Ray and DVD collection that I’m still in the process of ripping. Last, but not least it’s also hosting a private ARK Survival Evolved server under a VM using Ubuntu Server 16.04 as the OS. This was originally being hosted under a CentOS 7 server, but started throwing segmentation faults, out of memory exceptions, and kernel panics. With switching to Ubuntu Server I'm able to run the VM with less memory with zero issues.

 

Backup:

We are currently using CrashPlan to backup our personal data to the cloud. (I'm not sure what their policy is on movies if anyone on here knows please let me know!)

 

Additional info:

This is my first server build. It’s probably a bit overkill for our needs, but that is what made it fun to make. My favorite part of this server is how small and quiet it is with a single 120mm fan at the back.

Usage:

I use the storage for movies and series, i have media players around the house that access it.

Its also for backing up my computers and for general testing.

 

Backup:

The is arrays backed up to Yottacloud, this is a online cloud backup service. (I have 500/500 Mbps connection)

 

Additional info:

The server is nicknamed Abaddon as it's storage ranking score will be 666 AFAIK.

Pictures are the same as my original post, just with a full JBOD now.

@looney Wow, nice setup. Congratulations on the conversion to ZFS. Your ranking is still way up there...

 

@alpenwasser

Hmm, I'm at 10 WD 4TB Re SAS drives now...total of 16 4TB drives now.

 

Yeah, two drives failed and I sent them out for RMA / bought a new one because I was scared of losing the RAID6 array. Now I have 10 of them...

Update 

 

HDD 0 5 of Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s in raidz1 [15TB actual][10 usable]

HDD 0 4 of Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s 

&

HDD 1 1 of HGST Ultrastar 7K4000 HUS724030ALE641 6.0Gb/s 3.5" (Certified Refurbished) all in raidz1 [15TB actual][10 usable]

 

oh and there is one retired Seagate in machine that  i have not had the ambition to pull out since i have no drive to put there, but it is not assigned to any array and has been securely erased. it was retired due to it throwing an "end to end" smart error in freenas. there are no issues with the referb drive in the 3 weeks i have had it.

I wish you luck with the refurbished drives. I bought five WD Re SAS 4TB refurbished drives, and after six months, one died.

 

Two months later, the replacement for that same drive dies. One hour later, another refurbished drive dies...currently sending them back for RMA.

 

I kind of went out and bought a new one (expensive, yes) because I was getting paranoid with two failed drives in my RAID6 array.

Hardware

CASE: Fractal Define R5

PSU: Fractal Edison M 450W

MB: taken from HP ML10 Gen9

CPU: Pentium G4400

HS: Stock HP heatsink

RAM: 4GB DDR4 ECC

SATA 1: built into mobo (6 SATA ports)

SATA 2: cheap thing from ebay (2 SATA ports)

USB: Sandisk Cruzer 16GB (OS)

HDD 1-3: 3x 3TB WD Red WD30EFRX

HDD 4-7: 4x 3TB Toshiba DT01ACA300

Software and Configuration:

This runs Unraid. Only 6 drives are active at the moment, configured as 4 data + 2 parity. 

Usage:

This is mainly a backup server, so it holds copies of data where the primary copy is elsewhere. There is a small quantity of low importance data where it holds the only copy.

Backup:

This is the backup server. I don't backup the backups, not until such time off site cloud storage is practical and affordable at this capacity.

Additional info:

I chose the HP ML10 Gen9 server as host since it was very cheap new and featured ECC ram. Linus, you don't need Xeons for ECC! The case it came with didn't have enough drive bays though, and I chose the Define R5 with 8 native 3.5" positions, and I could adapt the 5.25 bays if I need more. The mobo headers are not consumer standard so I adapted the power switch, and added the blue LED lighting to serve as power indicator. The drive mix are recycled from previous smaller NAS systems.

CASE: Fantec TCG-4860KX07-1

PSU: EVGA 430W 80+

MB: EVGA Z68 FTW

CPU: i7 2600K

HS: Intel Boxed Fan

RAM: 24GB DDR3 1600 

SATA CARD: 4 Port Sata 3 PCIe

HDD 1: 5x 3TB WD RED WD WD30EFRX

HDD 2: 5x 8TB WD RED WD WD80EFZX

USB: 2x 16GB Kingston DataTraveler

NETWORK: HP Mellanox Connext-2 10GbE

CAGE: 2x RaidSonic Icy Box IB-545SSK

Software and Configuration:

It runns FreeNas with two RAIDZ-1 groups.

The 10GbE SFP+ connection goes to my workstation.

Usage:

The small volume is used for project data and other personal files.

The big volume is for movies (mainly Blurays), tv shows and music. I also run Plex to stream everything.

Backup:

All the private files like pictures and music are backed up on OneDrive. For the other files on my small volume i have two mirrored 10TB drives. One is always in an fireproof safe at the bank.

Additional info:

I used a Pentium with 16GB of ram in an Mini ITX Case until I added the five 8TB Drives. So I turned my old Workstation into the new NAS.

First I used a i7 2600, but then I put my old 2600K in it and disabled trhee Cores and clocked it down to 1,6GHz to safe some energy.
