[Ended] What would you do with a TerraMaster NAS?

This NAS is pretty hackable. It’s a pc in a box, with a bios.

I’m going to send it to one of you. What would you do with it?!

That would make a really cool storage pool for my Raspberry Pi Kubernetes Cluster I am building. It should have enough umph to run TrueNas Scale, when they work that out.

Sup,

Use it as a shared storage for my Homelab host so it’s easier to manage and update the host itself and unlocks more potential to actually play around with different hypervisors and such. Should be up to the job.

Back up the wife’s pictures automatically so that she won’t kill me when her HDD dies. Right now I try to get her to copy them to my PC, but I’m running software RAID1 and she’s not happy with the smallish capacity.

I would use it with a RAID 6 Array to back up my data, I would definitely play with some different Distros to see what I can make it do before though

I would use it as a Plex server, as I currently have almost 4 TB of movies and music and I’d like to get more!
