CTO of XDA Developers.

Linux systems are my specialty. As with any good system administrator, I dabble in networking, storage, virtualization, Android, and more.

LOPSA since 2008

I enjoy spending time with my family, social media, gaming and going backpacking. I have also blogged professionally for MakeUseOf, Lifehacker, and my own personal blog about system adminstration.

comment My uncle is the family historian. We need to host about 5-15 TB of images and video. Any inexpensive ideas?
Two options for backup - set up a secondary system, doubling your cost; somehow synchronize the data between the two, or test out the "unlimited" storage capacity that a lot of the backup services are offering these days!

Totally non server-fault related question, how did you scan in all of your photos? Did you and your uncle do it yourselves or have another service do it?

Priced out commercial solutions, all very expensive for 10TB of data (even S3). Seriously, buy the box and host it at home since you are expecting such little traffic, then if you need more bandwidth or transfer speed colo it somewhere which should cost you under $100/month.

comment I have 4GB ram installed, Windows sees 2814MB
How does your PC fare on memtest86? I've had half a stick of ram go bad before. Only memtest86 picked it up, but when I would boot into windows it would randomly crash.
