I have 11 drives for data, cache, and parity. I also have an SSD that is not part of the array for VM storage.

6 in total. Looking to upgrade at some point when a dedicated drive for VMs becomes a reality.  Not sure I have the capacity on my cache to do it now.

 

1 x Seagate 4Tb ST4000DM000 (Parity) (SATA 6)

4 x Seagate 4Tb ST4000DM000 (Data) (SATA 3)

1 x 128Gb SSD OCZ-VERTEX2_OCZ (Cache) (SATA 6)

Currently have 10 drives in one machine and 15 in the other. I plan to max out one system for sure and eventually will probably swap to a bigger case so I can have a 1:1 mirror with both systems.

13 for unRAID (and counting).  But 16 if you count ESXi datastore drives.

Six drives in first server

 

Three drives in second server

 

Plus Licenses for both.

13 data 1 cache 1 parity. As high as I'm willing go without dual parity.

1. ESXi server is in a Norco 4220 with the top 4 slots used in RAID5 datastore.  The remaining 16 are used in unRAID

2. Crashplan server is running the free version of unRAID as I only need parity and 1 data disk

3. Dev/Test/preclear server has parity + 4 data + cache mounted inside.  There are 6 trayless hotswap bays for preclear duty.

I've got two servers:

 

1: ESXi with 2 datastore disks, then a passed-through PERC H310 with 8 drives for unRAID 5.0.5

2: unRAID 5.0.5 bare metal with 5 disks
