I am looking at building a new NAS with an AMD CPU due to their price and core count and ECC support. Possibly Threadripper when it comes out. I currently run FREENAS but FreeBSD does not have very good support for AMD processes. Would a linux NAS distro be better? I like the idea of ZFS but i remember Wendell mentioning BTRFS or something similar. I would also like to create virtual machines and use plugins / programs like Transmission and Plex but if the underlying OS is Linux that should not be a problem. Current NAS is 20TB but looking at around 80+ TB for new build.
Thanks for any advice.
