  1. There might be several reasons as to why repurpose the Qnap NAS. -Security. See for example here: -Qnap depends on raid for redundancy and therefore all the drive are spinning for read write operations -While you can run Docker on Qnap fine, its clumsy to use and update -Qnap NAS are already build, no need to select the hardware yourself and build it. Just buy it, remove the DOM and you can run unRaid -Typically low power draw
  2. Shop: valid until: 25.7. link: 16TB Exos for 329€, 200 units remaining 18 TB Exos for 399€, 40 units remaining Prices are without shipping. I don’t know whether they ship outside Germany or not. keep in mind that the order is limited to 2 units per order. Great prices considering what’s currently going on (Chia, COVID, floods, …).
  3. Just those two NVMe drives for this purpose.
  4. I'm currently planing my next build and there is just one open question remaining. Relevant hardware would be as follows: AMD Ryzen 3600 or 5600X depending on price and availability ASROck Rack X570D4U-2L2T 2x 1TB Seagate FireCuda 530 (7.300MB/s read, 6.000MB/s write) My specific use case is remuxing (UHD) BDs to mkv with a makeMKV Docker. So the question is whether it's faster to read the full BD from one SSD and write to another one (cache of the array) or having both SSDs in raid 0 so that the Docker will simultaneously read and write from that cache drive. With the first method I will get the maximum read and write speed of that specific drive. I’m not sure whether there will be a bottleneck when there is simultaneous read and write to the SSDs as it’s the case for the raid 0 option. If not then it should be faster and I’m also more flexible in storage capacity. Thanks for any insights!
  5. I might have to considering current HDD prices :(
  6. I was super exited until I read that they use PCIe 3.0 Otherwise the GE series with its 35W TDP would be ideal for my next project.
  7. Would a USB DOM work? something like this:
  8. I'm thinking about getting it myself. How did your tests go?
  9. Jap, bin auf github. Selber alias wie hier.
  10. Ich könnte auch noch helfen, falls Bedarf besteht.
  11. After investigating some more, here are my findings: Xpenology Docker is basically 3 years old. Not sure if it still works Xpenology as a VM seems to work, but you can't load your unRaid shares directly. You have to mount them via virtual network and the speed is not optimal Nextcloud Docker and external storage: You can directly mount your shares inside the Docker and move files via App or Webgui. So this is the best solution imho. Comes extremely close to apps for Qnap and Synology.
  12. I really don't understand the negativity against this feature. Why shouldn't the solution be pretty or even elegant? Just look at how awesome the current webui of unRaid looks in contrast to a few years. All the suggested solutions (MC, Dolphin, Krusader) are horrible and ancient to use if you ever used Qnap or Synology (even low cost WD offers this). Then there are people saying that unRaid is lightweight. Look at all the features that unRaid added over the years. That's not light anymore, either. But it's awesome that this OS offers so many features. I think the best solution for now is using XPEnology inside a VM (which is definitely anything but lightweight) and then using the webui or the apps for file management. Is anybody using is already for this exact purpose? Would love to hear your experience. I personally don't even need file management inside the webui, apps for tablets and smartphone would be enough.
