Im looking to build a NAS for my media files. Having said that I like to get some ideas in terms of how to keep up with the storage demands as times goes.
How to grow my Hardware capacity in my NAS as time goes and as price of a hard drive drops.
- RAID 5 with 3 hard drives. Based on my internet research, RAID 5 is strong as the smallest hard drive. Having said that lets add a couple of hard drives to the example: 1.5tb, 1.5tb and 1.5tb.
Ebay just dropped there price on 4tb hard drive. How do I go about increasing the capacity of my NAS storage,what are my options?
Side note, Looking to use FreeNAS.
Any suggestions you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
