    for a storage server you're a bit short in ram..
    YOU HAVE 144TB storage you likely be needing the capacity of 4-12 TB ram depending on what you are serving with this system
    striping 3 of these together with 144GB of ssd you will likely kill the ram in buffering though at near on $29,000 on ssd's alone it becomes a cost prevention and likely saturate the bus speed meaning the 10Gb noc would likely ..

    Just wondered - if you can get an external drive with 2GB read/write speeds, would it be better to just install apps onto an external drive like this instead of using the onboard storage (which has lower read/write speeds), or does that introduce problems?

    So, it isn't a laptop with 100 TB of storage. Hey everyone, look at my HTC Evo 4G with 100TB of storage! This is a bit too much clickbait even for LMG.

    @Linus Please build a NAS with DUAL mSATA 2.5 inch adapter cases inside of a QNAP QDA-A2AR. It does not make sense, but could be fun as it is a RAID, inside a RAID, inside a RAID :D

    Sebastian Reichmann 5 months ago that video was sort of pointless. Also...if there's a somebody in your company who's not out of probation yet or has been fired since shooting the video, maybe consider re-shooting or editing him out. Because pixelated faces and scrambled voices are weird....

    last item, the newest SD Card specification was released a few months back. So, expect to see 127 TB SD cards hitting the market in about 2 years. Also, given their price point, they will still be cheaper than this setup and still have full bi-directional transfer speeds in excess of 1 GB/sec. Now, *THATS* portable!

  • Eric Oyen
    Eric Oyen 5 months ago

    btw, you guys really need to do a show for those of us who live on a normal income and can't afford this expensive stuff. How about something in the sub $1,500 range?

  • Eric Oyen
    Eric Oyen 5 months ago

    well, this certainly sounds like a boss device and would be perfect for some home installations, however, it's price is a lot more than most home video editing enthusiasts would be willing to pay. just the enclosure alone (no HDD's) is $2,499 not including taxes and shipping (free shipping on amazon, btw) and the SAS HDD's you would need for this are not cheap either. Prices range from a low of $250 to as high as $499 (depending on features). So, lets see how much this would cost if we used this particular enclosure and 12 of the Seagate Exos HDD ST12000NM0027 12TB (about $349 each not including shipping from newegg). Total cost (not including taxes or shipping) $6,687. For a low to mid range quality DAS for video editing in a professional setting, not too shabby. However, for the home video enthusiast, very pricey!

    So, my OCD is triggered. RAID 5 doesn't use a dedicated parity drive (that's a RAID 3, which isn't really used much anymore). It stripes the parity across the drives in the array. It takes up the capacity of one drive, but it is evenly distributed across all the drives.
