So a couple minor changes to the storage layout:

2x Samsung F3 500GB RAID1 - for the OS and whatever programs
2x Western Digital 640GB Black RAID1 - for downloads
2x Samsung F4 2TB RAID1 - for media
4x Samsung F3 1TB RAID10 - for user profile backups and backups in general

Total of 4784GB :) I think that should hold me over for a few years ;)

Just my server.

And really, that's far too much storage for my current needs ;) 3627GB free...

Nice looking rig JD. It's about to have a close cousin here in VA Beach. I'm using a Fractal Design Arc Midi Black with 12 HDs. I'm going to have a RAID 10 of 4 x 250 WD Scorpio Black 2.5" drives. This will be for the system and general file storage. I'll also have an LSI 9211-8i with a RAID 10 consisting of 8 x Seagate 450GB 15,000rpm SAS drives.

I'm obviously not going to a large storage volume as much as I need an array with high IOPs and read/write transfer. I will be running Server 2008 R2 Standard with Hyper-V. It will ultimately end up running between 5-10 virtual machines depending on what projects I am working on for work.

I'll post picks as soon as I have everything together. The RAID controller won't be here until Monday.

I'm still around...I'm just out doing much more stuff during the summer. The move took alot of time as well. As we get into the colder months this place should come back to life.

Nice to see you here David :)

What model of Seagate drives do you have?? I currently still have my 8 Cheetah's I bought two years ago!! :( They are 15k.5 drives only 74Gb models but they are just for Raid 0 with my Adaptec 5805 card as I am just using them for speed :) I bought them just before the SSD's started to get better...

They are model ST3450856SS. I'm looking forward to get this server up and running. It's an upgrade I desperately needed.
