Server advice needed

Hi all,

 

I am configuring a nas with 8tb storage (2x8 in raid 0)

I want to have a docker install of my home assistant , 4K transcoding (might be hardware) as a plus

 

i was thinking of i3 10105 as cpu, 2wd red of 8tb, 8-16gb ram, ssd for unraid+docker

 

i would like to have a power consumption comparable to synology nas. Power is getting incredibly expensive around here. So preferably below 20w idle or something. Is that even possible?

I also read people using 2.5 inch hdd’s but they are much slower than red I suppose?

 

what might be a good mainboard for this setting?

Unraid IS NOT RAID. If you have one disk as parity and one disk as data, then parity is effectively a mirror, but with more data disks the difference between Unraid and traditional RAID are more apparent.

 

You could have no parity and both disks as data, but that wouldn't be raid 0, it would just be 2 data disks. Each data disk in Unraid is an independent filesystem. Each file exists completely on one disk. Folders can span disks (user shares).

Ok I understand, as long as the files are protected it is ok.
