    Keep it low power and you should be fine

    I personally have the Qnap devices and they are awesome, I replaced my media server with one and won't ever go back.
    I've moved on to getting a server with built in storage now rather then building Nas - although going to use a HP microserver to replicate data to which has the tiny AMD processor

    Thank you!!

    This is what we have just placed an order on! all for a fairly decent price of 4 and a a bit thousand. Going to use the supermicro as a server running ubuntu and backup pc using 16 of the 2tb hdd's. then 4 2tb disks in the HP for replicating data too in a remote location.

    HEWLETT PACKARD HP ProLiant N36L 1.30GHz 2-core 1P
    2GB Dual Rank x8 PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333MHz) Unbuffered
    Western Digital REII-GP 2TB 3.5 SATA Internal Hard Drive x 20
    RAID CARD - Intel RAID Controller SASUC8I
    INTEL Quad Core Xeon E5520 2.26GHz LGA1366 5.86GT
    Super Micro SuperChassis 847E1-R1400LPB
    Super Micro X8DTH-IF
    Supermicro 8GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory Module

    The super micro can also be used as a virtual host should the need arise.

    yeah i looked at that but thought the 36 bay case would be better as it allows for alot more future expansion - plus also i thought about using the same machine to run our IP CCTV aswell in a VM

    To answer an old question, RHEL and SUSE double up the letters, to sdx, sdy, sdz, sdaa, sdab, etc. It's probably the same on some other distros too, but I don't have the hardware to try it for 27 different drives on Ubuntu here.

    I bought it about a year ago. They didn't have the 36bay version then. It's the loudest thing in our server room!
