    New Network and Server Stack

    Hey folks, I’ve been noticing that my UnRaid server is getting a tad long in the tooth in terms of speed of docker containers running and the VMs. Granted the server is running on an old FX-8320 and 16GB of DDR3 ram. So I think it’s time to upgrade but I don’t know which path to take...

    New member, new build, need advice

    OK! wow.... what a great community STH is. I wish I would have known about this place sooner. I have been doing a lot of reading the past week. This has led to the typical highs, feeling like I know what I want, and lows, feeling like I know nothing about what is out there. That being said, I am...

    Cache drive for unRaid over 1TB

    Looking for a cache drive for unRaid that's over 1TB. I have one available PCIe and would like to get something to use for a cache drive. Maybe something that would fit in a 2u chassis if possible...if not, I can swap things to my 3u instead for full-height cards.

    Docker Syncthing

    Hello, I'm new to docker as a whole so I'm going to have some dumb questions. I just wanted to put that upfront. Anyway, I have a client who is in need of syncing two UnRaid boxes in separate locations securely, safely but most important simply. I have heard good things about SyncThing (yes...

    Cheap SAS (*Right Angle*) SFF-8087 to 4x SATA breakout cable LOTS

    At this price it's worth buying a handful, as long as the lengths (20", 24", 28", & 31") will work with your setup. I personally have 1M cables coiled up and velcro-ed together in one of my short depth cases, so these will work for at least that application. H/T @Rand__ for his post...

    Expand Drobo5N units, or migrate to new storage plan?

    Stick with what works, or get a bit more ambitious? I have x3 Drobo 5N NAS boxes with 3TB WD Red drives in each. It amounts to about 10.8TB each. I use them exclusively for serving up media to several Kodi playback devices (bluray backsups, DVDs, music, photos, etc). Nothing fancy, not...
