Hi people, I'm planning to add some big storage solution to my VPS business<http://hetz.biz>. I did some checking and calculated the costs, and figured out that if I want to have a decent 12TB solution NAS box, it would be best if I would roll my own. (12 TB before all the RAID stuff, after that it would lot less). All other solutions are very expensive (example: IBM EXP 3000 costs here 6K nis without a single hard disk).
I'm planning to use hardware based RAID card, minimal Linux distribution and have some offers like iSCSI, NFS, CIFS - the usual suspects. My question is: since I'll use hardware RAID card, which processor and how much RAM should I put in such a machine? Xeon is overkill IIRC. What do you suggest? Thanks and Shana Tova Hetz -- my blog (hebrew): http://benhamo.org Skype: heunique MSN: hetz-b...@benhamo.org
