Suggestion for a reliable RAID 4x enclosure (Fantec?)
"Overkill is always better when it comes to important data."


Why a home-made NAS (DAS+RPI) instead of buying one?

1. Flexibility. I can do whatever I want (and I usually find myself needing custom stuff).
2. Simplicity. NAS come with all the sort of stuff inside (e.g. support for torrents, etc...) that I don't need. With the RPI I can just install what I need.
3. Security. This has to do with simplicity and with the fact that I know very well Raspbian (and Linux in general), so I can manage and monitor it. With a NAS I couldn't have the same kind of control.


Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2 
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
