>Assuming those are SSD’s because of 2.5in factor… fucking zoomers.
I assumed they're 2.5" SSDs because what is the benefit to running 2.5" mechanical drives over 3.5" drives? The highest common size I've seen for 2.5" mechanical drives is 5TB (a few with 6TB now but not common). Assuming they're 5TB each and the 12 hotswap bays you have there take up the same space as the 4 3.5" drives below, you have 60TB of 2.5" drives, when you could instead have 80TB in four 3.5" drives for less money, less hassle, less heat, and lower power consumption. Alternatively, you're running them together for faster collective read and write speeds than the 3.5" drives, in which case SSDs would be better (or 3.5" drives with an SSD used for cache).
So, anon, why are you using 2.5" mechanical drives?
>>
>>1172620
not OP but I run about 2 dozen mechanical drives in a sacrificial RAIDZ2 from laptops i harvest

>>1172620
LOL newfag thinks hes being smart, listen kiddo, ahem, sorry listen faggot, when you get up to 142tb come talk to me, but you fail to understand the power of hot-swapping 2.5in drives and cost savings over SSD per TB. As you are seeing my system fully tricked out for maximum sharing in a single sessions I can deploy a 142tb archive. But I can pull from another server of mine and swap an additional 80TB of overflow data from my downloading rig, and this is something your small dick brain cant comprehend about how big dick anons share the shit you love to download.

Stay safe out there poverty computer user.

>what is the benefit to running 2.5" mechanical drives over 3.5" drives?
There are actually a few:
>However, there are still some arguments that speak in favor of a 2.5" RAID array. These relate mainly to considerations such as storage density, energy consumption and noise levels. Up to ten 2.5" hard drives can be fit into a 1U rack mount device, while only four 3.5" can be accommodated into removable frames. As you can easily imagine, ten 2.5" drives should be able to outperform four 3.5" disks in terms of I/O performance.
>Looking at the drive specifications reveals the 2.5" drives to be much more energy efficient. When idle, they actually beat their 3.5" brothers in power consumption by a factor of ten times! When comparing activity power consumption, the 3.5" drive still require four times more energy. If we decided to start checking performance per watt, the 3.5" drives would be smashed.
>Last but not least, all 2.5" drives at common rotation speeds are extremely easy to handle since they do not require any special cooling. For this reason, we consider a 2.5" RAID array running 4-6 drives as a pretty applicable solution for high-end desktops and some workstations. There would be hardly any noise or cooling needs, and the capacity reached should be enough for most application scenarios; checking our benchmarks will give you a sense of what to expect performance-wise. The only drawback would be the total cost of such an array.

>As you can easily imagine, ten 2.5" drives should be able to outperform four 3.5" disks in terms of I/O performance.
i could imagine this is true out of context. i can't imagine either a proper raid card or much more likely the poorfag hba/softraid setup most people run could make any use whatsoever of 10 simultaneous drives.
>When idle, they actually beat their 3.5" brothers in power consumption by a factor of ten times!
absolute drivel lol.
>If we decided to start checking performance per watt, the 3.5" drives would be smashed.
...but we won't because its nonsense
the example 10x6tb vs 4x20tb, even if 3.5 do use 4x the electricity (they don't) the 3.5 array will use ~0.8 power / tb ((80/(4x4)) / (60/10))
>Last but not least, all 2.5" drives at common rotation speeds are extremely easy to handle since they do not require any special cooling.
lol
the only real benefit (swapping drive size for count reduces losses in parity raid setups) isn't mentioned because soft raid poorfags cpus can't handle chad raid5/6 and just waste space on cringe 10 configs (raid isn't a backup lol)

So that' s the problem, the ubiquotus wincrap. I though pro versions integrated NFS. SSH is granted as it is needed anyway to manage Pis.

Other than that, why not using just a webserver with dir-listing? Most media players accept dragged links from a browser. Some formats are even playable on the browser itself.

Don't you wear out all the HDDs at the same time while seeding? I made the mistake of torrenting directly on my Drobo, for a couple of months, and 3 of the 4 drives failed very quickly after that. It's a good thing they failed in a sequence, so I was able to restore my data every time.

Yeah, I have a 4gb pi4 + 5tb hdd torrent setup. It's samba shared, so I can watch full 4k remuxes just through wifi. I just have no clue why a NUC would be so much better, unless you're doing a lot more with it.

>>1180068
Don't know what the technical term for it is, but Plex is basically just self hosted Netflix. So you have a server with all your movies running a Plex server, then you download the Plex client on your other devices, and then you can stream your movies from your server to your device.

No real difference aside from how they're connected determining the transfer speeds. But that's really only a concern with moving/copying files between internal and external drives, for uploading and downloading even an external drive connected through usb2.0 should be fast enough.
