Restructing Hardware

So I have been operating very well with my current network and hardware setup, it has done very well to centralize most of my items and having a certain system to move media around. At this point I have reached a point of expansion. First off I’m rebuilding my WHS server on another server and reaching the maximum expansion this time on one go. My current setup is at 11.2 TB which I have almost maxed out, so the next setup will be around 18 to 21 TB and I will be reusing a lot of the hard drives that I currently have.

I will be shifting the big server to a Lian Li case and placing it next to a 27U rack which will hold three readynas 1100, one gigabit network switch, one rack mount server, and one 1500 KVA UPS for all the equipment including the WHS Server. This is going to take some time but it will really clean up my storage solution and I would have a very reliable and expandable setup. And I keep expanding in that rack.
