I have started the journey of making a RPI NAS.
I’m guessing that powering the 4 drives from the RPI USB ports is not a good idea.
A USB hub would be the better way to go - right?
I am going to use Open Vault to run the NAS part.
Anyone used it? Thoughts? “Traps”?
If I do use a USB Hub, that will be 2 power points needed. 1 - Hub, 1 - RPI.
I am wanting to make a unit for the NAS. So would it be worth my while putting 2 x 240 sockets within the NAS box and only have one 240v power cable?
After reading stuff, I am not sure the RPI is worth it.
I have seen the Orange Pi has better specs for NAS working.
If anyone can help with that too, I would appreciate it.
