  1. Thank you for the suggestions! I will take those into consideration. I've been trying to expand my knowledge a little only because I am interested in pursuing a career track in IT. I enjoy the infrastructure design, setup, maintain and upgrade. Thanks!

  3. Hey folks, I’ve been noticing that my UnRaid server is getting a tad long in the tooth in terms of speed of docker containers running and the VMs. Granted the server is running on an old FX-8320 and 16GB of DDR3 ram. So I think it’s time to upgrade but I don’t know which path to take. Currently I’ve got an order to Amazon for the following parts list...https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xcnPVc (Note that all Purchased Items will be put into the new server from the old one.) On the other hand however, I also thought that maybe a used Dell R710 like this one...C
  4. Hello, I'm enlisting in some help for a client of mine. I'm fairly versed on the fundamentals of UNRaid as I run it myself, however, I wanted to run a few things by some more "informed" people to make sure I'm not crazy. I am looking at the following configuration for this post: So I need to do the following with this machine: Backup a desktop tower Backup a personal laptop Store photos and videos Nextcloud for "Secure" Data Storage (Prerequisite is MariaDB) OpenVPN (so I can get into the machine and network remotely if things go a rye)
  5. Here's a parts list. IMHO I would also look at getting some usb pcie cards for "hotplug" usb so you don't need to reboot everytime you plug in a thumb drive. If you need help feel free to reach out to me.

  6. What if you were to go the more odd but practical and do the following: Build a High core count machine and install UNRaid on it with VM's GPU and USB passthrough.
  7. Hello,I'm new to docker as a whole so I'm going to have some dumb questions. I just wanted to put that upfront.Anyway, I have a client who is in need of syncing two UnRaid boxes in separate locations securely, safely but most important simply. I have heard good things about SyncThing (yes it can be run in Docker) from Tom Lawrence of Lawrence Systems on YouTube (I know a great reliable source) and wanted to give it a shot. The files are definitely needing to be synced and updated in as close to realtime as possible (business databases and Quickbooks files). I think it's secure because as long
  8. Okay. When I get pictures, I'l send them. IMO it is pretty well managed but I'll let the internet be the judge of that.
