Need a Solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everyone,
        I'm planning on building a server to use as a file server and to manage all my downoads.  I want all my information on this system, I want it to back up my current system, and I want it to run torrents and DC++.  I think WHS is a great solution, but I run into two problems:

    1. DC++   Can I use it?  I need DC++

    2. Efficient use of storage space.  Its hard for me to use WHS's RAID1-like functionality when something like RAID 5 is much more efficient.

    Solaris is tempting, Windows 2000 is tempting, and Ubuntu is tempting.  Any good solutions?

    I need:
    -A storage solution with redundancy (preferably an efficient one)
    -uTorrent (WHS can have)
    -Remote Access

    Thanks all.
