So I want to build my own NAS.
So far I figure I'll use a pair of mostly matched systems using Linux (not sure which flavor, but Debian looks good currently) and BRBD
(a network oriented raid). As far as hardware, I'm thinking something with at least 4x SATA and 1x (or hopefully 2x) gigabit Ethernet as well as rated as for industrial use. (Also, I'm liking this tray-less drive bay, the RTX100-INT
Anyway, I'm still trying figure out a motherboard (or motherboard+expansion card) solution.
I've looked into PC/104+ systems and Single Board Computers, but haven't seen anything that looks like it has the horsepower to handle storage and networking I require.
Can someone suggest such a beast what meets my above requirements (4x SATA, 1x or 2x gigabit Ethernet), is replaceable, and likely to last more than 5 years?
