So I made a stupid purchase. I picked up a second hand but great condition SATAbeast. It's a 4U rack mountable storage monster that can hold 42 drives, and creates enough noise to cause 12 divorces. Combined with my other stupid purchases (2x HC4, 1x Kobol Helios64 and a NetApp DS4243) I'm now up to 75 disk slots in total or about 1.35PB fully populated.
I've got a MooseFS Pro licence, which I could get extended to the full size of however big I make this.
I use my storage for small scale supercomputing tests, for RCC (platform for sharing legal content like music), biomedical research, hard drive mining and all sorts of other things, but it's a stupid and fun hobby if I'm honest. That's all it is.
Anyways I'm hoping to mine Sia, StorJ, Burst (kidding), Arweave, BHD, Chia, and I guess Safe Network with it.
Poll question: "am I completely nuts?"
