Have looked high and low for a ~20cm (or less) cable.
I have one of appropriate length without sideband, but would like to have sb if possible.
Literally the M14TQC hot swap cage is about 2 inches from the expander, so longer cables wind up blocking fan flow. Reconfiguring the expander...
I have one big ol JBOD with the following inside:
4x M28SAB which take 2 Molex connections each.
2x Intel RESCV360 which take one Molex each.
So, 11 Molex connections.
I also have a modular power supply which has 4x peripheral plugs for Molex/ SATA.
The obvious idea...
Seems the SMR drives have inflated cache to compensate for lower performance.
The SMR drives however have really appealing densities and form factors (4tb in a 2.5” package, that’d be 96tb in a 2U 24 bay Supermicro chassis).
So, first question: are they really so bad? I’m guessing the response...
I have a 4U chassis which I can fit 36 2.5" (4x 8 + 1x4). I'll be using SATA drives, but may migrate to SAS.
I'll be using ZFS to manage the array. So, the 1x4 will house the SSDs and hot spares
I presently have an Intel RES2CV360 and RES2CV240 which are laid out like this:
From what I...
Build Name: Fast and Bulbous (Multi-chassis hybrid)
Operating System/ Storage Platform: OsX / OpenZFS on OsX
Since this functions as one complete entity, I will keep everything in one place.
It's in the last stages of completion, so more will be added as it all gets pulled together including...
Frequent lurker here. I think first time posting.
Gradually putting together a larger post with my complete build, however I have a couple of loose ends.
I’ve reviewed some of the threads on the CB3 but some info I haven’t found or I haven’t seen a direct comparison in my use case...
