In the quest for reliable and expendable storage, I drew up a plan for a storage array. The first stone has now been laid in the form of my first 1u, mini ITX based, rack mountable storage server.
(The weird Garfield colored rug to the right IS indeed our cat.) This first brick will run its storage on 2 disks, each 2Tb, over a raid controller, configured to behave as RAID 1.
The orders were placed, packages received (very timely I might add!) and the assembly was adventurous!
Time to get out and enjoy the sun! And drink lots of jummy water!
