    ANNIHILATOR284 reacted to Uttamattamakin in Has PC tech become stagnant? I think so.   
    Agreed agreed agreed.

    I mean once the smart phone came around and there was money to be made there we stopped pushing for more.    I think about the fact that Windows Vista had more graphically intensive UI (compared to the hardware available) than windows 10.   You are right.

    Unless VR becomes a thing that is actually required in order to use some killer app or play the must have games who needs to upgrade.  Unless having many many cores becomes required a quad core i7 from 2018 will still be usable in 2038.

    It shouldn't be a problem. If you check the user manual, section 1.1.2, (the motherboard diagram), #5, is labeled DDR4 DIMM.2_SLOT. The included DIMM.2 card has two M.2 connectors and plugs into this slot. See page 1-37 for details.

    lol unfortunately i don't have 150k. i've been using my 650ti for over 3 years and they've been performing great (obviously not amazingly great) with an i5 2600K. i make use of CUDA processing so that shouldn't be a problem. along with big data.

    ANNIHILATOR284 reacted to Pixel5 in NAS For Work Use   
    honestly with that low requirements the easiest way would be to get a two bay synology, drop in some 3TB drives to future prove it and let them mirror each other.
    additionally you want to have either USB drives to backup the synology or if you want to go the better route get a 2nd synology and let them mirror each other, possibly even have the 2nd one off site and replicate overnight.
    far better than fiddling with a self build system unless you have an actual IT guy that sets it up properly.
    since you only have 1 gigabit networking you could get a NAs with link aggregation support and maybe get them to buy a managed switch that supports it as well, this way you can atleast supply 1gbit to two users at a time.

    ANNIHILATOR284 reacted to leadeater in XFS vs ZFS vs EXT4 vs BTRFS for a NAS, your thoughts and why?   
    For a small NAS where small addition of single drives is wanted to expand it BTRFS would be my pick, ZFS simply is not as flexible as BTRFS in that regard and not everyone is going to be able to add disks to a ZFS pool in groups of 4 or 8 etc. Then the other issue is that if you add vdevs to a pool they are striped so if a vdev dies the pool dies.

    ANNIHILATOR284 reacted to Mikensan in XFS vs ZFS vs EXT4 vs BTRFS for a NAS, your thoughts and why?   
    I believe redhat dropped btrfs which is a kick in the balls, having a large player like that bundle it would'vet helped it gain more traction. ZFS has grown pretty fast lately simply because of FreeNAS/TrueNAS.
    EXT4 is just a file system, as NTFS is - it doesn't really do anything for a NAS and would require either hardware or software to add some flavor. So it has no barring.
    I don't know anything about XFS (I thought unRaid was entirely btrfs before this thread)
    ZFS is pretty reliable and very mature. It's not the fastest but not exactly a slouch. It's built for protecting your data, but since the performance hit for that protection isn't really that bad, lot of us use it for more than just warm/cold storage.
    I've used FreeNAS for... 3 years now I think. Since 9.6 maybe? The only issue I've ever had (consistently) is AD integration. Now that I have a second FreeNAS box that does not need AD - I used it to test AD on updates. Other than a burnt out cyberjock (I say that because he seems pretty grumpy answering the same questions 100x times, I would be too) the FreeNAS community is pretty lively and full of support. Also since your boot disk uses snapshots rolling back after a bad update is cake.
    Linux distros would bundle ZFS if it weren't for the more strict licensing (much more complicated I'm told) of ZFS. You can install it manually (hence the port) but bundlinging it somehow offends the license gods. I think linux + zfs would be badass given the immense flexibility and support for linux. Install docker and KVM, and you have one hell of a solution.

    Out of those unix file systems, if I could afford the upfront cost of all my drives and didn't really plan to expand it - then i'd go for ZFS on BSD. 
    It has excellent protection, a robust filesystem that protects against bitrot, and lots of features like the levels of cache. 
    If i wanted flexibility to grow the array then i'd go EXT4 with MDADM in Linux due to its maturity and robustness. Theres a lot of support for it as well. 
    XFS is a mature file system as well, but I don't like the way its implemented in unRAID - especially for multi-honed use. 
    BTRFS is basically the Linux version of ZFS (rather than just ZFS ported to Linux), but it still needs work around RAID.

    ANNIHILATOR284 reacted to Name Taken in CRITICAL! Need help with extracting data from what seems to be a failing FreeNAS box.   
    For FreeBSD, drop to the shell, import the zpool, mount the NTFS drive, run copy.
    For Linux, Ubuntu is the easiest option as it has binary ZFS kernel modules in its repos then same as above.
