    BitTorrent Sync

    http://labs.bittorrent.com/experiments/sync/technology.html This looks like an excellent way to keep several or more pc's in sync as long as the pc's you want to keep synced are switched on at the same time. Looks like a very useful tool and I can see no cons with it. Much more secure than cloud offerings as all the files and folders are stored on your own pc's.

    Home NAS suggestions

    I just got a package from Newegg I've been waiting a long time for. Not that they took a long time to ship, but that it took me a long time to pull the trigger and send them the PayPal payments. Waiting patiently paid off, I was able to grab these items individually over a three month period for ~ 65% of retail. Still, it was ~$600. Here's what it contained. 4 @ Western Digital Red WD30EFRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s For NAS systems http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822236344 1 @ Sans Digital 4 Bay eSATA Port Multiplier JBOD Tower Storage Enclosure TR4M+BNC SATA 150 & 300 4 x Hot-Swappable 3.5" Drive Bays JBOD (Hard drives are accessed individually) eSATA (via Port Multiplier) OS Supported Supports PC, Linux and MAC OS, including Windows 7 and Snow Leopard http://www.newegg.co...N82E16816111177 1 @ HighPoint RocketHybrid 1222 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card 2 x eSATA III External Connectors Up to 6Gb/s http://www.newegg.co...N82E16816115098 I want to set this up as a home file storage/backup server. Probably attached to my main desktop running ArchLinux. No Windows sharing is necessary, but I would like to be able to access it from outside the network from my ArchLinux laptop or Android tablet. What advice do you have? What RAID levels would you suggest? What filesystem? What should I read about? I've been reading like crazy about a lot of things, but.....choices, choices. WOW! Thanks for your suggestions.

    NAS... Where to start?

    Yeah the topic sums it up best. So I've read about NAS rigs running FreeNAS over at Tom's Hardware. But my questions are more geared towards finding the balance between costs and efficiency of the hardware options to implement and build a NAS device. So where else do I post? Maybe in the Linux forums, but it's not really linux, and it's definitely not Windows, though Windows should be able to access it - or what's the use? CPU: cluesless - well not completely - I suppose most anything will work. Atom*, Athlon XP (1600+), P2/P3 (450MHz-1GHz, some duals), P4 (2.4ghz-3.4ghz), P-D(one, ??), Core 2 Duo (or C2D - 1.8), Celeron (331), Core I3*, or that new Intel E3 Xeon* on a Mini-ITX*? (* = $$$, need to buy) Posts at Tom's Hardware state to avoid PCI - as it's mostly dead anyways. And I would have to agree, though most of my systems are AGP/PCI based. RAM: Again the posts indicate that FreeNAS can operate with 512MB to 1024MB/1GB, and everything else above 1GB is a waste of resources. What about ZFS memory requirements - well, I don't know. OS HDD: some old thing that still runs; (Live-)CD, 1GB USB, 40GB ide, 80 GB sata (for FreeNAS of course) RAID: most likely - hardware or software?? ZFS sounds nice. as does Raid 5 and Raid 6. Anything special to look out for? HDD: Well I was thinking 3TB, but old school hardware (most anything pre-C2D) might have (untested) limitations. PSU and CASE: Well, just about any PSU and any case will work. So off to the FreeNAS site to do some digging.
