You should make something like this for a rack. Would be pretty cool and cheap. 

 

 

Wowowowo That is cool but still it costs several hundreds :D The amount of Pi's there is too damn high :D But legos i have many many boxes :D

You could do it on a smaller scale. But the Lego/k'nex idea won't limit you to how many pis you can add as you can just build more (:

Maybe yes :) No one uses the legos right now... So... They could be used for something useful now :D

Sounds like a pretty cool idea. You could probably use any Linux distro or my personal favorite (though not linux) NetBSD http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/evbarm/raspberry_pi/  along with Samba. If you've got WIFI you could even setup a wireless AP. It's actually not that hard. Good luck

Thanks :) Well i need to try to remember that link you posted. I am not just not yet sure what my friend has thought to use as i am not that experienced with linux :) Yes i thought about wireless, but i think wired is more stable and i have a little "box" Under the router so i can put this in there or something... Anyways wireless is in my mind and it would be cool to make a nice looking case and put it on show somewhere in the house :) Or just hide and forget about it.

It will work and will be easy to setup but it is going to be so god damn slow.

Yes.. I have heard about that speed issue. But i think for me about 10mb/s file trasfer speed would be enough. Even a little less. And the best is that it will be fun to build :)

is USB the only option for the drives? I really like your avatar btw poor little round furball!

Yes it propably is the only option. But for me it would be so cool if it even worked with usb 2.0 speed, but it wont. Due to some other bottlenecks.

and you already have the raspberry pi? If not you might be better off looking into a Soekris board or something like it. http://soekris.com/products/net4801.html

Yes, i already have raspi but how is that soekris better? It has slower cpu, slower usb, less ram and so on. But it has more connectors.

They have ones that are more powerful and have SATA connections for the drives I linked to the wrong one. You would probably need to use the net6501 http://soekris.com/products/net6501/net6501-30-board.html which has 2xSATA ports as well as 4xGb intel nics.

Well that is a mini server! :) But again, now the price goes upppp :) With that kind of money i could do many other things as well :) Thanks anyway for informing me!

Today my friend and i fired it up for the first time and have spent about 6h with it and all we got running is ssh connection from our house to his house so he can configure it from there. It runs raspbian in command mode. Tomorrow more news.
