Building Your Own NAS: Silverstone DS380 Chassis Tested, Reviewed

August 17th, 2014 1 comment

TechSpot combines some popular NAS components, a Silverstone DS380 case, Asrock C2750D4I motherboard, and FreeNAS.

Assembling your own NAS would net more performance as well because you’d be using a Celeron or Pentium over the Atom or other SoCs, while power shouldn’t be a concern with Haswell using less than 30 watts at idle. As the cherry on top, open source software such as FreeNAS and enclosures like Silverstone’s DS380 should make it less daunting to get started with your homebrewed eight-bay NAS server.

ZFS data integrity tested

February 25th, 2010 No comments

Robin Harris over at the Storage Bits blog goes over a new UW-M paper analyzing the fault tolerance claims of ZFS.

File systems guard all the data in your computer, but most are based on 20-30 year old architectures that put your data at risk with every I/O. The open source ZFS from Sun Oracle claims high data integrity – and now that claim has been tested.
