3 nodes. 28TB Total, Just over 13TB used.
Started of just using spare space on a Synology DS3617xs. But I’ve since expanded that array with Storj earnings.
The other 2 nodes are a Drobo 2nd gen that I use for extra backups, but had 2TB of spare space and a 2TB HDD in a USB enclosure that I had lying around doing nothing. They’re both connected to the Synology.
I’m currently expanding the SHR2 array on my Synology after which I will upgrade that node to 24TB (it’s 18TB now).
Should be enough for a while to come. Bays on the DS3617xs are now all filled, but with future expansion I can replace smaller HDDs which I can then use in the Drobo, increasing the size of both nodes. I might also add more USB enclosures if necessary.
The Synology array is accelerated by a RAID1 of SSDs. And the databases for the Drobo and USB nodes are moved to that array. Mostly because the Drobo is notoriously slow, but it seems to be holding up with this setup.
