[Testlab Log] 20 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf Pros

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This thread exists so that I can just link it in my sig and not have to repeat myself a bunch when asked about my storage.

After discussing w/ forum staff, this was deemed the most appropriate place for the thread.

 

Media NAS: Qnap TS-877-1700-16G-US

CPU: Ryzen 7 1700 Pro

RAM: 32GB DDR4 2400 (8GB x 4)

SSD Cache: 4x 1TB Crucial MX500 2.5"

Storage: 6 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf Pros

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050

NIC: Qnap QXG-10G1T 10G Ethernet Card

 

Main Uses: Plex, Tautulli, VMs

 

Archival NAS: Qnap TVS-873-16G-US

CPU: AMD RX-421BD 2.1~3.4 GHz

RAM: 32GB DDR4 2400 (16GB x 2)

SSD Cache: 2x 1TB Crucial MX500 M.2

Storage: 8 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf Pros

NIC: Asus ROG Areion 10G Ethernet Card

 

Main Uses: Archival Storage, VM Backup

 

Test Lab NAS: Qnap TS-463U-RP 1U

CPU: AMD GX-420MC SOC 2.0GHz

RAM: 16GB DDR3 (8GB x 2)

SSD Cache: 2x 1TB Crucial MX500 SATA M.2

Storage: 4 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf Pros

NIC: QNAP 10GbE PCIe Card

 

Spoiler

 

Retired Test Lab, Replaced by TS-463U-RP  NAS: Qnap TS-431XeU-8G 1U

CPU: Alpine AL-314 Quad-Core 1.7 GHz

RAM: 8GB DDR3 (8GB x 1)

SSD Cache: None

Storage: 4 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf Pros

NIC: Integrated 10G SFP+

 

 

Hypervisor 1: ASUS RS200-E9-PS2-F

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v6

RAM: 32GB DDR4 2400 (8GB x 4)

SSD 1: Intel Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB

SSD 2: Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB

NIC: AQC107 Based 10GbE

 

Hypervisor 2: Supermicro AS-E301-9D-8CN4

CPU: AMD EPYC 3251 SoC Processor

RAM: 64GB DDR4 Registered ECC (2x 32GB)

SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB

NIC: AQC107 Based 10GbE

 

Main Uses: Isolated Test VMs, Less Important Archival Storage, ISOs for every OS ever (exaggerating, but a lot).

 

Why I didn't build a custom NAS and use FreeNAS: I didn't want to for home use. Been down that route and I wanted something smaller and I like QNAP's software.

 

The other two 8TBs are in my main system as RAID 1 redundant local storage.

4TB of cheap NVMe storage!

These 660p drives are cheaper than even SATA drives.

We'll see how they hold up over time.

Replaced the TS-431XeU-8G with the TS-463U-RP because there are some apps I wanted to use that are not supported on ARM CPUs.

When is that time when you have to increase your storage capacity after years of data collection and you do it with Seagate.🐺

My smaller photo archive is almost due.

That's likely the route I'm headed so that I don't have to build/buy a bigger NAS.

I could probably just take less photos... but what fun is that?

geez, and here I am thinking "4tb is fine for the near future" xD 

Though within less than a year I'm already at 800gb >.>


You should get 16tb drives
So that the price comes down later in life and I can afford them ;.;

You always say "this amount is fine" and then within a year you're sitting there like "shit, this is NOT fine."

I did some house cleaning and I shed about 80, 20, and 40GB per drive (though my Plex drive has been continually growing).

This shit is why I want to go with a 512GB SSD for my main drive and then a pair of 2TB SSDs in my next rig though.

The global Datasphere (Datasphere: digital data generated) will grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 by 2025 and Seagate is getting ready, so don't be surprised if in the following years you see how the capacity of the HDDs double their capacity every year, if you don't get bored you can read more here:

I'll give it a read later today.

Seems to match up well with when I expect to have to upgrade to a much larger unit than the little optiplex 390 I built with dual 4tb 😅.

 

Closer to what @Den-Fi is currently doing 👀

Ah, I've been wondering what the HAMR tech was up to! Will definitely give this a read later.
