OK, I know there are reasons why NAS drives are more money than desktop drives like higher tolerance of vibration, less patience before reporting errors by design and so on. Now I’d suspect server drives to be kind of the same but just with “double the whatever”. But I don’t know for sure.
Since I am planning to run a few huge capacity drives, I thought I ask if I’m missing something. The idea is to get rid of a bunch of smaller drives and the machine running those and instead having just 3 16TB Exos drives in my mac pro and run those in raidz1.
