I’m new to DrivePool but I think I will go ahead and purchase but I have questions about a setup I’m planning. How well will my setup work?
256GB M.2 Boot Drive
256GB 2.5in SSD
1TB M.2 SSD CACHE
5x 8TB HDD (ordered file placement)
1x 8TB (Snapraid set to sync every 24/hr)
1TB 2.5in SSD Cache
2x10TB HDD (Ordered file placement)
1x10TB HDD (Snapraid set to sync every 24/hr)
Boot off M.2 but mirror to a 2.5SSD
Store on Pool#1
Because Snapraid isn’t real time, I will use DrivePool to duplicate certain folder real time to Pool#2
Snapraid will calculate the parity for both pools every night
Use DrivePool scanner to monitor all the drives
MAYBE: Also duplicate specific Pool #1 files (the ones beings duplicated to pool#2) to cloud using DrivePool/CloudDrive
Can I use M.2 for my cache?
What if the file I’m moving to my pool is larger than my SSD cache?
Is it possible to have two snapraid arrays?
Would the duplication real time and then Snapraid at night be good for redundancy and recovery?
Would an i5-8600k and 16GB of ddr4 be enough for this system? I don’t plan to run much on it, mainly this NAS. I might few smaller services along with this. Maybe plex
