Dear Unraid Forum

Totally new to this whole forum thing so please bear with me

I have been given a Dell PowerEdge T420 with one Xeon processor which I would like to use as a unraid server. I have a look at all the options and found unraid is the way to go.

Previously has a synology DS1512+ in raid 5 where 2 disk crashed and I lost all my data, so it’s time to try something new.

I plan to eventually fill all the drive bays starting with three Seagate 12TB drives and an SSD for cache support

I will want this server to do everything File sharing, media sever, Backups, transcoding and PVR. You name it,  I will want this server to do everything.   

Any thoughts help suggestions I would be most grateful.

Many thanks
