    I just finished building my network attached storage system. It gives me 1.1TB of storage accessible through the network or FTP over the ‘net. It cost me $800 plus a few old components I already had lying around. I created a worklog web page for it for anyone looking to create something similar.

    I’ve developed a BTRFS and Linux powered NAS solution called Rockstor. It’s Free and opensource, is at version 3.x, runs on commodity hardware and has active development to support new features.
