Yays! Fun stuff in route!
Part of my 2018 goals is to be able to have a universally-accessible resource where I can be able to store all the data that I need to, and more, without worry of fault or loss. One of the ways to approach this is to create a File Server that I can mount from a majority of operating systems and be able to store anywhere in the world. So, I’ve come to the conclusion to build a Linux File Server, complete with a Software RAID5 (as opposed to a hardware RAID5), and make it so that we can use iSCSI to mount the LUNs.
We need to do this on a budget, too.
