    Comparison: 512e versus 4kn

    I heard quite often that it doesn't matter and even that 4kn is faster or that 512e comes with "a performance hit". However, I have yet to see any direct comparisons with tools and parameters I trust (such as fio), so I decided to run my own. I will try to keep this concise :). Obligatory...

    HUGO for Linux

    Can anyone help me with a download for HUGO for Linux (RHEL/CentOS)? I have the Windows version but that would require I install some trial of Windows first, or remove a pile of disks from my server, attach them one at a time to my Windows machine. Thanks in advance!

    Lots of trouble with Z11PA-U12-10G-2S + 4210R

    So I built me a home server for running VM's and storage for backups. I considered going for a Dell T440 but it got too expensive quickly once you start adding things. So I dicided to build my own (something I've done plenty before). Asus Z11PA-U12-10G-2S Intel Xeon Silver 4210R 6x Kingston...
