is anybody using USB Hub‘s to connect more than one external USB 3 HDD with a Server?
Right now I am running two external nodes that are connected to my Qnap-NAS via USB 3. the Qnap has enough memory and CPU power free to run many more nodes, but unfortunately only has 2 x USB 3 ports…
How would you extend the storage?
I know that there is the official qnap expansion box, but that‘s so expensive… I think by just adding another external USB 3 HDD I can save a lot of money, but I don‘t know if this will work. Will it increase my IO waits significantly?
