Help Needed: New WHS Platorm, Need to build a new large storage size WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Well, I have had my HP MediaSmart Server now for a year and a half and it has served me well, I have recently moved to using My Movies in a big way, and it is great, but unfortunately my server is maxed. I have 8Tb of storage connected to the server and I am out of space.

    I want to build a new platform that has room for what I need now as well as room for expansion.

    Ideally I want something like a Niveus Cargo Server. Something I can easily do 32Tb of storage in the one unit. A cargo would be great, 16 drives, 18 inches deep and 3U high, but it does not seem to be openly available and I am sure Niveus charge a fortune thru their channel.

    Do any of you guys have recommendations on a server platform I can build myself that I would eventually grow to this capacity that is on the market?

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Paul

  • Take a look at the Norco RPC-4020 case. You can add whatever mobo you want (get one with a lot of SATA ports), add a some SATA cards and you'll have a 21 drive WHS.
