Now that Im going to have my own dedicate space once again Im looking to build up my home lab as I had it before, due to lack of space I had to reduce most of my gear even some is at a storage and other gave it away, looking around online on new ideas to build a NAS since I have some server cpu with ton of ram laying around found this

Original post:

This guy build a nice 28 BAY NAS SERVER that even using 3TB HDD would on raid would be around 60TB that I can build slowly without having to go ALL IN and brake the piggy bank

Reason for building a NAS
-Storage for video projects including raw video and audio
-PLEX Server, want to build up my movie and tv series collection
-Second Backup Solution, I already run a NAS Server but just for backup task

Software in mind: for virtualization I have always use vmware but this time Im looking at unraid for how cheap it is and all the features it has for my home/office storage solution, I will run a few virtual machines on this NAS like Freenas and Plex server to start with just to manage my entertainment center and storage, the pro version is only $129 I find it very affordable.


After building the structure, the frame and putting on top all the HDD Cages, would like to close it with acrylic sides and have exhaust fans since that amount of HDD together will need ventilation

Things I have
-EVGA Supernova G1 1000W
-Samsung 500GB SSD
-MSI GTX 1060 6G GAMING X (For transcoding)
-2 x E5-2620 (Yes old 12 Thread Server CPU)
-Supermicro X9DRi-LN4F+ (Board has 4 x 16x PCIE)


Things need to buy
-HDD Cages
-LSI Raid Cards (Havent pick the model yet)
-Looking at 3TB Seagate NAS Drives

For now this is what I have thought since I dont want to spend that much on a 4U Server case like the Norco that may cost me $500+ and international shipping, I may even build the frame locally and buy the HDD Cages, will keep you posted

For computing this should be more than enough
