  • Alright, I would like a NAS and (separated) a server with some small services (pi-hole or adguard, syncthing, jellyfin (getting the data from the NAS), and so on). I thought about running the small services with docker on a RPi 4 and the NAS on a refurbished business PC with SATA drives in the case (I checked ebay and there are mainboards with 4 SATA III connectors and PCI so I could even add more SATA connectors). In a second moment a backup server (maybe with borg) would be a good idea but I could also do manual backups with an external USB HDD for the time being. And I have a tight budget.

    This is roughly what I want to to with my system. A synology sounds nice but they are pricey and I’m not learning so much so I’d go another route if possible.

    Maybe it’s best if I just hook up some USB drives to my Pi and get my hands dirty with that. If the performance is not too bad (like you said).

    This describes what I’d like to do. Budget is low and I don’t have a lot of hardware laying around. For the capacity I don’t know yet but for sure 6tb to start with. I’d like to try RAID (heard a lot, never tried it yet) and another backup (maybe something for the future).
