My Home Media Server/NAS

This is my Home Server. It's sort of inspired by Tom's videos on his home server. It runs Plex, Sonarr, Radarr and acts as a Torrentslave, NAS & Backup machine for me.

Specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G
Motherboard: Asus Prime B450M-A
Memory: 16GB Crucial DDR4-2400MHz
Power Supply: Corsair AX760
Case: Fractal Design Define R5

Hard Drives:
Crucial MX500 250GB SSD (OS)
Samsung 860 Evo 1TB SSD
Western Digital Red 10TB (x2)
Western Digital Green 4TB
Seagate Barracuda 4TB
Western Digital Red 3TB
Western Digital Green 3TB
Western Digital Green 2TB (x2)

39TB with a mixture of desktop drives & NAS drives, they'll all be upgraded to NAS drives at some point.

I have the 8 hard drives arranged in 4 pairs, each of the same size. I use Sync Software (FreeFileSync) running as a scheduled task in the background to sync the contents of one into another. It's sort of equivalent of running 4 arrays of RAID 1.

I like the simplicity of this setup rather than RAID as it means I can easily swap drives between machines and I don't have to worry about being dependent on the motherboard or a RAID card. The only disadvantage is that if I get a drive failure, it's a manual process to rebuild everything.

It just runs Windows 10. I've toyed with putting Debian Linux on it instead, but I've kind of grown to like how you set up services, permissions and scheduled tasks on Windows, so I think I'm going to stick with what I have. Not to mention it's working so well now, it'd be a shame to take it down for a week, plus my wife would give me an earfull if she can't watch stuff from it for a week or so.

I may try out Windows Server on it at some point though, given you can run it for free for 180 days.

Since this forum could use some more activity, I thought I'd share some recent updates.

I upgraded the CPU to an R5 2600 and the motherboard to an ASRock X470D4U. The motherboard is probably the star of the show, since to my knowledge it's the only AM4 motherboard out there with IPMI (it does carry a premium for it though).

IPMI for anyone not familiar with it, allows flashing or accessing the BIOS and things like installing an OS over the network. It's great because it means you can just plug in two ethernet cables, shove the server in the attic and you're done.

I've also now got 61TB of storage via the HDDs, mostly with Western Digital Reds.

Finally I've moved from Windows to Debian 10 which was always my favorite Linux OS. It's really great on the server, I don't see myself using Windows on my Home Server again.

Delighted with the result.










And lastly, this is me installing an OS over the network. (Briefly tried out Ubuntu Server 19.10, but I didn't particularly like it).
