Rackmount 1U NAS for Friend what should I buy?

Go to solution Solved by Marko Rogulja,

I have just installed 1u synology rs818+ with 4x 10TB and so far installation and implementation with active directory was seamless.

I can recommend it.

 

Hello Everybody!

 

So, I need to help a friend get a 1U 19" Rackmount NAS.

 

It should be as cheap as possible, but with sufficient (maybe a bit more) performance.

 

In the beginning there will be 2 drives (6TB) and there should be a possibility to expand > 4 drive bays would be good

 

He / his family, will almost exclusively use the NAS for media streaming. (~ 5 concurrent streams maximum, I would guess).

 

Which NAS would you recommend?

 

Thank you in advance!

There's not a whole lot of 1U servers that take 3.5" drives, but this HP does https://www.servershop24.de/server/hp/dl-serie/hp-proliant-dl160-gen8-server-2x-xeon-e5-2637-dual-core-3-00-ghz-16-gb-ddr3-ram-2x-1000-gb-sata-7-2k/a-118182/ you should be able to get that shipped to Austria. I do think however, that you're better off building one from the ground up. The Inter Tech IPC 1HU-1304L should be a good case to build in, maybe with some used server hardware or just regular desktop parts.

I am thinking of getting the RS818+ too.

 

Do you use it for media streaming too?

How does it fair?

 

Thanks in advance!

Synology NAS systems are notorious for randomly bricking themselves, it's typically a power supply issue.
