The NAS You Would Like to Build Yourself

Illustration for article titled The NAS You Would Like to Build Yourself

The Black Dwarf reminds me of those old 3.5" floppy cases from the 90s. Except it uses eight 2TB hard drives. 16 terabytes. RAID 5. 266 megabytes per second reading. 88 megabyte per second writing. All custom-made. Good. God.

The homemade NAS—perfect for editing massive video files or copying the whole internet—was created by Will Urbina. I like it more than hot dogs with jam and lemonade. [Will U. DesignThanks Clint!]

Dangit, my NAS only has 5 2TB drives in a RAID5... and one of them is a hot spare!

And I've been having trouble keeping mine stable and coherent. Grr.
