Right now I've got a shitty WD EX4100 and everything was sort of running along nicely with docker and all, but today it rebooted and decided that it didn't want to do anything with docker anymore. I got the thing before I got into Linux and its time to move on.
Someone locally is selling the following for $250CAD
- Quad core Celeron @ 2Ghz
- 8GB RAM
- Fractal Node 304 case
- 2x WD 2TB Red 3.5" hard drives
- 120GB Kingston SSD
- 700 watt semi-modular power supply
All I run are the following:
- qbittorrent (but I'll switch to a better one)
- serve up content to my HTPC (running Kodi, so no transcoding or anything)
I don't need the drives that come with it. I'll be putting in 4x 4TB WD Reds. Right now the box is running Open Media Vault 6, so I'll give that a swing, otherwise it'll just be Ubuntu server.
How does this sound? I'm not opposed to spending some money on a new NAS, I just want something simple that I don't have to fuck around with too much.
I ended up going with the HP Proliant
OS: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS x86_64 Host: ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Kernel: 5.11.0-43-generic CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 (8) @ 3.700GHz GPU: 01:00.1 Matrox Electronics Systems Ltd. MGA G200EH Memory: 32GB
It's pretty good so far. Thanks everybody!
