LTT Storage Rankings

Recommended Posts

EDIT EDIT:

Lol, the Kingston SSD in the system reports a power on time of 192199786507591 hours, which seems... a tad high :)

Maybe, just a little.

Or, your drive might just be 21 million millenia old (in which case, I think Kingston has won the award for highest drive endurance, and should probably be awarded a Nobel prize). ;)

You guys are cute, you should stop by /r/DataHoarder

 

There's a guy on there with 0.96PB of home storage...

Twelve 60TB NAS systems...

What the actual fuck. Guy needs to calm down a bit. He's surely got some sort of connection or he's using a huge office array or something. One person does not need a petabyte of content surely.

Never mind calm down, I just need to update that post, I'm around 1.4PB now, no office array all home storage on regular consumer hardware,

worth mentioning I got a little discount on some of the drives through work and used my office 10Gbit pipe to fill most of them though.

 

As for need, none of us need these storage arrays but it's fun to say things like "I have a copy of any movie you can name."

Update: now with 30% more gen storage!

 

  • removed 4 1.5TB drives and a 2TB drive
  • added 6 3TB drives

 

Current drive count:

  •   2x Seagate ST3000DM001
  •   12x Toshiba DT01ACA300

 

Also, the list seems to have me as using 2012R2, should be 2008R2.

Infact I do of the new rig, but not of the server itself (not overly spectacular anyway) - but will take some if I get the chance to shut it down at some point.

 

Will post the together when I have proper ones of both as well as my complete setup / desk.

 

 

Also, the list seems to have me as using 2012R2, should be 2008R2.

 

Gave 2012 a fair chance, but it's absolutely horrible.

Woohoo just got offered a firmware development job at HGST. Hopefully it comes with a nice employee discount on drives and I can shoot for #1 on the list.

Don't forget you companies backers (Hitachi drive user since 2004, heck that one is still working!)

Update for my rig, link to build log post here.

The server now has 4x 3TB Seagate NAS drives and a 1TB WD Blue drive (vs. 2x 3TB NAS drives and the 1TB Blue). The server is also now running mdadm and LVM in raid 6.

PSU: Corsair CX600 80 plus Bronze (non modular)
MB: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
CPU: AMD FX-4130 Zambezi Quad-Core 3.8GHz
HS: Stock AMD heatsink
RAM: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unregistered DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Server Memory Model CT2KIT51272BD1339
HDD 1: 6x Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
 
Software and Configuration:
I am running Freenas and running in RAID-Z2. Total drive space of 18 TB after the raid that leaves 10.6TB useable.

Usage:
Anime storage. Game ISO storage/steam backup. FTP. My main rig, and laptop also do automated backups to this machine. Roughly 4.5 TB used currently.
Backup:
No offsite backup as my upload speed is terrible. If my connection improves I will add offsite.

Additional info:
I do run a PLEX server off it when I need it. Freenas is already a RAM hungry little OS though. Normally 8GB is enough for it. When you fire up the PLEX service though it starts to slug a little. Need to add another 8GB.

Software and Configuration:
This is my media centre PC running Windows 7 home.  I'm using FlexRAID for my array, pictures below.

Usage:
I ran out of both hard drive and physical space in my FreeNAS server so I added to my htpc instead.  I'm using it to store my blu-ray and DVD movies and TV series

Additional info:
The media centre is using an AMD A10 because I didn't want to deal with a video card but wanted to do some light gaming on the side.  The system automatically launches XBMC and draws 105W at full load from the wall.

Question: Can a storage system count if it's spread across multiple physical appliances?

 

For example, if we have external JBODs or a clustered storage system (e.g. vSAN).

Looney's original criterion is that it's all running off of a single

motherboard, not sure how he wants to handle this. @looney?

It should or does as everyone's storage is in a different location and then who's to know if you have a JBOD in one room and the other across the globe?

Within reason, of course.

 

Clustered file systems can be spread across multiple sites, but I was thinking of a system where the hosts are in the same rack, like 3 vSAN servers providing virtual datastores or a server with multiple JBODs connected by external cabling.

 

Otherwise, we're limited to a mere 144 TB for a 24-drive case :P

Well, quite a few users now have more than one system in the list,

so at some point (i.e. when I get the time ;)) I think I might add

a ranking list based on per-user total capacity in addition to the

per-system list we have now.

EDIT:

Also, there's at least one guy who has a system with a main box

and a second case running off a SAS expander, so you're not limited

to 24 drives on one M/B. :D
