Challenge: I want a low-energy 24/7 hosting solution for torrents ONLY. No backup considerations necessary.
Goal: Less than 50W, able to handle 3MB/s (25Mbit/s) upload throughput, actively host up to 1000 torrent files that are anywhere from 20MB to 1GB in size each but at low bandwidths (<10kbps).
With this high volume of unique .torrents, I have another concern. If the torrents happen to somehow get removed/unload from the client, I want a way to automate the relocation and checking of my files without having to do it manually (for example, going through folders to designate the save area for a given .torrent). This is of course assuming I still have the .torrent files on hand. Are there any simple ways to create backup scripts for this? Like have a sort of directory list which points all the torrent files back to their file locations so I don't have to do it 1000 times?
Is NAS even an option here? Are the clients that come with most NAS robust enough for BitTorrent? Is there any uTorrent efficiency-like apps for NAS? Or can I even install uTorrent on the NAS and use that effectively for my purposes?
