I am not sure if this is in the right location, if not any admin please move it to the right place.
I am building a storage server right now for my house. I have the server already built but I dont know what I should use to expand my storage. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 motherboard with a i5 2400 and 16gigs of DDR3-1600 Corsair XMS3 ram. It is going to be used for storing full copies of blu rays. I have Windows 7 HP on the server because I need WMC for streaming live TV. I also have an Infinitv 4 cablecard tuner in it for recording tv. I have the whole house wired with cat6 and a netgear gs724t. I know my network is fast enough for streaming but I need to make sure that if I use a HBA card and a SAS expander that it will be fast enough for streaming bit for bit copies of blu rays. I do not want to use hardware raid, I want to use flexraid for a storage pool and use double parity. I am putting a Norco RPC-4020 in my rack so there is alot of room for expansion. I will be streaming to at least 3 different locations via the ceton media extenders when they become available. I was approved for the beta testing so I will have at least one very soon. I hope thats enough information. If you need to know anything more let me know and I'll post it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
