New File Server

This evening I put together a badass RAID file server as a birthday present for my beautiful wife (yes she is watching me type this). Here’s the ingredients list:

iTunes with mt-daapd

The LSI card was simple to configure and has great Linux support. The drives are configured for RAID 5, which means one drive gets sacrificed to the parity gods (but the other 3 are all data, baby).

I also installed mt-daapd, for which this picture is worth a thousand words. As I type, Kassidy is in the office uploading music over Samba. Every few minutes another hundred songs pop into iTunes. Rock!

Anyway, check out the df -H:

Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1               39G   8.4G    29G  23% /
/dev/sda1              946G    15G   883G   2% /raid

If you squint it almost looks like a terabyte.
