i'm kind of disappointed that kobol.io stopped (https://blog.kobol.io/2021/08/25/we-are-pulling-the-plug/), was looking forward to the Helios64
does anyone know of any other NAS devices that come with free software? clearly nothing will beat its aesthetics but…
@livestradamus thanks, that looks pretty interesting !
i've thought about using some single board computer, but they generally don't come with SATA (let alone plenty of ports), and also it's hard to find a suitable enclosure which fits drives at all but isn't huge like a PC tower
@livestradamus i've looked at it in some more detail-still looks promising to me, love the compact case, 2x 3.5" 2x 2.5" is enough for me; the only thing i'm slightly doubtful about is that the four drives share an USB3 bus with the ethernet controller
now, top notch performance isn't *super* important to me, it's more about being able to do RAID for reliability, but still, it shouldn't be sluggish, looking forward to hearing about people's experiences with it
@orionwl since the improved performance since the pi 4 this space has huge potential. An example https://www.crowdsupply.com/wiretrustee/wiretrustee-sata
