Network Attached Storage (NAS)

  • Good day Sir.

    Question about Synology Surveillance System meron na ba sa inyo gumamit ng hikvision or Dahua ip cams? any issue encountered?

    Thanks in advance.
  • Nabuo ko na yung pamalit sa synology. Bought a 2nd hand supermicro board. Installed unraid. Problem ko lang is di ko alam kung baket di ko ma turn-on using power switch. Kailangan ko pa sya i-on remotely. Aside from that, ok naman. Need na lang i-transfer mga files.
  • Ngayon ko lang nalaman, pwede pala iconnect yung built-in file manager app ng iPadOS sa Synology NAS via smb file share.
  • I plan to build a DIY NAS, pumalya na yung ds214play ko. Main purpose is file storage, file sharing, torrent and media transcoder (PLEX) but low wattage system. I plan to put 2 x 4TB hard drives (I have an existing 4TB). Raid is not a priority pero kung may budget for more drives baka mag RAID na din. I don't have a budget yet. Ok lang ba yung mga 3200g or baka may mas mababa na processors na ok. Ok din ba yung mga intel atom and raspberry pi?
    Thanks!
  • just get those Celeron J3xxxx series ITX boards instead. pwede din naman mag transcode ng video yun using quicksync which apparently what Synology uses on their x86 based NAS. As for AMD based APU/GPU, well walang hardware transcoding yan so you will be relying much on the raw CPU power but possible you can use the hardware transcoding for AMD if you install Windows instead of other NAS specific OS like xpenology, omv, truenas etc....
  • @polka
    I plan to use xpenology or mag ubuntu ako
    Thanks, research ko yung celeron

    i am using raspberry pi (started with rpi 3b+, now rpi 4b 2GB) maybe 3-4 years na. gamit ko sya as NAS, torrent, media player (Kodi) at netflix (also on Kodi) connected sa 9 years old plasma TV. before nasa Asus router lang ang NAS at torrent ko. sulit sya sa needs ko kasi low power consumption, easy to maintain at wala ng patayan. di rin need ng proper shutdown/restart, just disconnect the power and connect it back. ok naman ang transfer speed for me; @wifi-2.4GHz: 3-4MB/s peak, @wifi-5GHz: 10-11MB/s peak, @wired-gigabit: 25-28MB/s peak

    since di mo priority ang RAID baka umubra na sa yo ang rpi. USB (2x3.0 at 2x2.0) lang kasi ang connection ng harddisk, so need mo pa ng enclosure for the harddisk.
  • no to raspberry pi as a NAS unless you want a head ache (USB timeout errors, SD cards suddenly get corrupted for no reason etc...)
    im not saying it will not work, but its PIA to maintain.

    maybe that will change once custom IO boards for raspberry compute module is now a thing. for now, the SBC... nope.

    as i've said mine is running now 24/7 for 3-4 years already without any problem. actually once nainstall ko sya wala na akong gagawin, pag sinipag update minsan. swertihan lang ba yan or depende sa hardware and distro used? i am using sanddisk 16GB sd at raspbian.

    i have also sa rpi 3b+ in my car (kodi+netflix) with OSMC before, madalas sya corrupted sd. no choice ako before kasi di lumalabas ang kodi sa vga port nya on raspbian kaya nag OSMC ako. then later i upgraded my headrest monitors to HDMI at nagswitch sa raspbian, di ko pa naexperience ulit yong corrupted sd.

  • Okay lang ba ihalo yung surveillance sa storage pool containing Ironwolf drives? Or better hiwalay na storage pool using surveillance drive? Parang sayang kasi yung drive bay kung hiwalay pa na storage pool, mababawasan yung capacity for expansion
  • well to be honest id just place it on a separate drive so the pool can spin down and save a lot of power and longevity of the drive in the process.
  • Gigabyte is releasing a Threadripper Pro WRX80 motherboard with 7 x 4.0 PCIE x16 slots .. this is going to be the perfect platform for an UNRAID/Proxmox build.

    If you are in a family of 5 and all your kids are going to school, you can just buy monitors, GPUs, keyboards and mouse and run everything from this platform and it will not flinch.. you can probably run games all at the same time.
