Hello! I’m Thiago, photographer and filmmaker and I need to build a NAS for store my files.
(yes, I only need it for raw storage)
Because of Coronavirus, I will have many events in the second half of 2020. As I will not be able to edit everything in time, I will need something like 12tb of free storage.
As the budget is short, I will tell you what I already have:
_8gb 3000mhz ddr4 fury
_3x3tb 7200rpm HDD
_1x m.2 sata 250gb
I think about using FreeNAS, and have at least 2 parity disks (RaidZ2)
I have never worked with NAS, I am researching a lot on the internet, and I would like your help!
Should I use my 3HDD that I already have?
What better HDD arrangement do you recommend? Which HDD should I buy?
Is RaidZ2 the best option for my situation?
Can I leave my NAS turned off, and just turn it on to back up the files on my main PC?
Is it possible for me to work with the 2.5gigabit network? And with 10gigabit?
What to do with my m.2?
thank’s for your time!
Thank you very much if you can help me
