WHS – Stage 4

I have the server up and running, dumping files from three machines and the Infrant NAS. I have the Videos in duplication mode, so all my videos are duplicated on the server. Most of drives are in the Athena Backplane, most of it is in the storage pool except for one drive which is what I am going to be using to switch data between drives. Its faster to connect that one drive to the SATA drive of each computer and copy the data, then copy it over at one go by connecting it to the Backplane inside the server. Now to transfer the data from the different networks over to the one location, more drives to be added, and then there is the idea of combining the network.

  1. It looks like a great Idea :)
    I will be doing is adding 3 nas servers each 2TB and raid 1. Then I will connect them onto the network. If you have a better suggestion I would like to know.
    Thanks and Good luck ^^

    I am just wondering why didn’t order your stuff from Tigerdirect or Newegg? Why did you choose amazon??

    Curious thats all ;-)

    Hope everything works for you!

  4. 3baid: Thanks!

    G: That is too much hardware for just that amount of space. One Nas 6TB, thats what I have right now.

    K: I agree

    Frankom: Get one!

    K: lol

    NvidiaFTW: Because TigerDirect and Newegg have payment policies which drive me nuts so it isn’t worth ordering from them, getting complications and delaying the orders. And the price difference is minor for most items. Amazon has quick shipping too. Thanks!

    Shaymaa: I agree!
