So I may be looking for another NAS box. Currently, I have an 8 bay Synology ds1815+. It's really good for performance, ease of use and features, but shit starts to really fall apart when failures show up.

Keep in mind that my 8 drives are in RAID6, the following outlines my experience with Synology shenanigans.
1. When a drive dies, the box shuts down. There's no way to tell what drive has died, you have to unplug one drive at a time and hope the box boots. The box won't boot if it has a dead drive, so it's pretty much go through it one by one.
2. If you have 2 dead drives, this gets very tricky, not to mention dangerous, as more than 2 drives dying = yer fucked bud.
3. Once you've replaced the bad drives, a rebuild is 23 hours. I guess that's not bad for rebuilding a 16TB striped parity volume. Woohoo performance?
4. If the rebuild fails, your stuff may still be OK, but there's no way to access it. Maybe some ganoo lenux wizards could space magic in there, but from the Synology forums and from my experience, you HAVE to email Synology, and ONLY they are capable of remote-accessing the box to give you a chance to back-up your info.
5. Scrambling to find 11TB of spare HDD space to back up all the things isn't fun.
6. The feeling of being dependent on remote-access from a company to recover important files is not a good one.

At this point, I almost feel like buying a second ds1815+ so I can use it as a mirror. The odds of a simultaneous failure of two separate boxes or more than 4 drives at once is pretty damn low even for someone as unlucky as me... But I really don't feel like giving Synology another 1250 syrup dongs.

tl;dr are there other options for an 8ish bay NAS box that doesn't lock you out or shut itself down at the drop of a hat? What are my options for building a hardware RAID computer that could give me comparable performance to the Synology box? I've built quite a few computers, but I'm still pretty new to RAID stuff. If it's about the same deal as building a computer, just with a hip new flavor of motherboard or something, I'd be down to give it a shot.

I use some QC5000-ITX/PH board for my NAS. Picked it up for about $60 a few years ago. It's passively cooled and last I checked it sat around 12-15watts on my kill-a-watt while idle. Only got a case and a tiny power supply. Already had spare ram.

I have OpenMediaVault loaded on an old obsolete 70gb msata drive, that formerly sat in my laptop. It's hooked up to a USB3 adapter and sits inside the case.
2x 8TB HGST Ultrastar He8's in RAID1. Acquired these drives several months ago, doubling my former capacity.
2x 4TB HGST Ultrastars. These old drives used to be my main RAID1 array and served me well for years. Eventually I needed some more room and these are now set in RAID0 and used to store extra parity information via OMV's Snapraid plugin. Essentially these now act like a weekly "backup"+extra error checking. These are typically powered down. There is no issue if either of these drives fail.
1x 8TB Seagate Archive HDD. This is a cheapo and slow as fuck shingled drive that is perfect for offsite (protected from fire/theft) backups. I don't add much to my data horde anymore, so I only retrieve it to do an actual backup every 2 months or so.

I'll will never ever bother with RAID5/6.

Also, here's a protip:
Shitty SATA cables can cause hard to identify issues with hard drives in raid. If you have a hard drive that works fine in an enclosure, but starts acting up when stuck in a raid array, try a _different brand_ of cable.

Open Media Vault is pretty baller, but the whole permissions thing can be a pain in the dick to figure out when setting up SMB shares and the like. If you are new to this and a big dummy like me, expect to have to start from scratch a few times before you finally learn from trial and error. People that actually understand linux (OMV is debian based) will probably have a much easier time.
Other than that, OMV is pretty straightforward with everything being based on plugins and the web interface. I've never had to use the command line or any of that bullshit, thank the devs.

>mfw reading that

For some reason I never considered 8 to 10tb UHCP drives. I think I was stuck in the "they're so expensive" mentality without considering total cost of 8+ drive RAID build and dollar per GB. In addition, I would be using this kind of thing as a backup to the backup, so it would see less use, making drive replacement cost smaller relative to system use.

I was parting out a RAID6 build and saving up but now... Now I really don't think I'll have to bother. Just a cheap build and some UHCPs...

Glad that was helpful. It was basically what I ran into when deciding how wanted to set things up years ago. Did I want lots of cheap moving parts, or do I want less moving parts for not all that much more cost-wise? After coming across a fuckton of "my RAID5/6 array is all fucked!" threads, the decision was easy. Either I care about complete redundancy, and use RAID1 or RAID10, if I actually wanted to save thousands of movies or something, or I don't and use RAID0/Linear.

I've basically just doubled my data storage a few times over the past decade and a half, starting with 2TB, moving to 4TB, and now finally 8TB. This has allowed me to easily re-purpose my previous old drives for extra redundancy.

Realistically, with a proper setup you can easily find 8TB drives that are cheaper than ultrastars. I personally like ultrastars because they've been the closest thing to a gold standard that is accessible to a consumer's wallet, and hey, I have a job and don't drink so that cost premium isn't an issue to me. But as long as you have redundancy and incremental backups (that can't get fucked by power surges, fire or theft), then you can easily get away with "perfectly fine" and even "adequate" when it comes to reliability. Another thing to factor in is the rate at which you acquire data. With my recent upgrade I should be set for another 4-5 years, at which point consumer-class phased holographic hypercube drives should allow me to double my storage again affordably.

The ultrastar HE8's were about $360 for an single drive.
Many same capacity RAID compatible drives should be around or under the $300 range. WD Reds were pretty solid last I checked.
Seagate's archive drive was about $220. Don't use this in a RAID array. They are meant for occasional use. Do incremental, compressed backups to these.

You can use a browser plugin called "camelcamelcamel" to see historic prices for an item on amazon. For hard drives, this tells you when to hold off buying. Stay away from oddly low prices and stick to the listings with hundreds of recent positive reviews.
>> No. 109047 ID: 19518e
Originally I went with smaller drives in RAID6 because I knew I was going to use it a lot every day, so drive failure was absolutely a matter of "when" and "how many". Replacing a $350+ HDD every couple of months versus a $150 drive and rebuilding didn't look too bad to me, even considering the slightly higher setup cost.

Plus I started out needing 10+TB of redundant storage when 6TB drives were a LOT more than what they are now, and 8+TB drives didn't even exist.

At this point, I'll keep using the Synology, I mean I've already purchased it. I have spare 3TB drives already, and it still makes sense from a daily use/upkeep cost perspective.

But for offsite backups, you're right on all accounts, and that's what I'll do. Time to do a bit of homework on drive prices and stay on the lookout for sales.

Some better journalism is going on at Fox than other broadcast outlets. They aren't entirely running the anti-Trump hysteria tactical talking points. They don't accept and push a lot of the recent obvious gov't non denials denials at face value against Trump. There was some collusion @ Fox indicated in the Podesta emails that got about as little coverage as the others. Fox has fairly well toed the mainstream Republican establishment pro-immigration line and is still as bought and paid for as everyone else.

It predates that, MSM sucks because they don't talk to people. Fox, CNN, BBC... they all cut the feed the moment a guest says something that counters the narrative.

Over time this makes MSM think that the majority agrees with them, and SO MSM starts shilling for MSM beliefs, thinking that will get them bigger audiences.

Nearly all the under 30s I know would support an anti-immigration pro-white candidate if there was one in Canada. All the boomers I've ever met think anything but full globalist multiculturalism with mandatory racemixing is bigoted and wrong. The former grew up in a majority arab-somali area with prayer rooms and drive by whootings while the latter grew up in exclusively white neighbourhoods. Growing up in a multiracial area breeds racism. Even the boomers who are 100% "whites will be gone in 100 years, beige power!" admit that there seems to be less trust today than in the past.

I think the group described in the OP has a dumb attitude (muh oppression! muh victim status!), but people have to take responsibility for their own safety. Also guns are fun.

I think you'd be better off jamming the Ku-band frequency that its satellite link runs at. That video feed back to the pilot shouldn't be THAT hard to blind if you point a moderately sized jammer with a directional antenna up at the satellite.
>> No. 108826 ID: 9723b1
This is true Basically the satellite cant distinguish the drones signals through the jamming noise, so the satellite has no idea how to send corrections to drone. If there's an operator, his best bet is just to not touch anything and let the drone go into autopilot. Drone circles until it loses fuel and then crashes.

This is the problem with satellite guidance. It has to be extremely sensitive to send and receive signals from small transceivers, which means its easy to jam. GPS guided bombs, GPS guided anything, drones of any kind... completely useless against any country that has functioning universities churning out electronics graduates.

Also glide ratio is dependent on speed. Obviously if its launched at a faster speed the wings will generate more lift and give it a better ratio. A drone can't usually fly very fast, so glide ratio is reduced from whatever the manufacturer is claiming.
>> No. 108853 ID: 10f4c8

Most drones are fairly slow, topping out at ~300mph, with a 250mph cruising speed. Additionally, the most common drones are only a little bit stealthy.

If you had a missile that could get up to that altitude, hitting one wouldn't be that hard, but you're talking blowing up tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of hardware that far up when you could probably buy three top-class jammers for the cost of one workable missile.
>> No. 108855 ID: 9723b1
Don't forget that control signals for them interfere with one another, which is why USA can only fly ~25 UCAVs above Afghanistan.

I'm confused. I thought you said you were a landlord landlord but you're living with your tenants/making food for each other and maybe googly eyes?

Generally, getting too friendly with a tenant means bad times. They'll start to expect leniency on rent due or increases because "we're bros right?" Do not advise past a Christmas card and polite conversations about the weather.

Thats a fucking genius idea to use the shopvac and how to clean it.

Joy when LL can't into management. I was writing on a 4-plex a while ago, when inspection came, LL had forgotten about it and LA had to go tell her to get her ass outside, she hadn't given proper notice, and didn't have keys to her units, which meant knocking on doors to ask nicely a bunch of tenants to let a small crowd of besuited and coveralled strangers into their house to look at everything. Obviously, much time was wasted and we had to come back the next day, when more time was wasted.

At least the person you are dealing with is too chickenshit to do anything. Some of my customer will press that "Reset" button on the back of the router and/or modem when I ask them to power cycle them.

"You unplug the black plug and give it a few seconds"
customer "ok I press and hold the reset for a few seconds"
"Wait you what? I said to unplug the power plug to power cycle"
customer "you said to 'restart' the router so I press reset"
"No you just factory reset the thing, all your password and setting are gone"

I am the landlord ;__;

That's what took over an hour, trying to find keys, and to get permissions to enter the unit due to lack of formal 24 hour notice. I miss the chill renters that were there previously. Just knock on the door, "Yo, something is broke", "yeah, come on in, let me show you".

She lied and said she power cycled the router. Then when I got there, she called me and was like "lol, I don't know what a router is". Same tenant claimed that the house had bed bugs (it didn't) [her kid got fleas] and fled to the breakers in palm beach.

Wait, i thought you were the cable guy. Why are you being IT bitch for your tenants? Thats firmly a "Go take it up with the ISP" on my turf, even if its money out of (their) pocket.

I don't have enough units to justify getting these, but you might and it could save you a lot of hassle:

Basically, makes it baby easy to rekey doors and provides you with a master so you can quickly get in and out.

I'm surprised you're having issues with 24 hour notice to fix something, usually they're pretty happy about stuff like that so long as its not intrusive like ripping out the living room carpet or something.

Because I'm a cheap jew and we own the router / modem. So, IT support is somewhat my problem. BUT, I got paid like $20 for that from not having to rent equipment. So there's that.

Then quit being scared and buy one. Putting two mirrors at a right angle isn't the same thing. For one you have a giant seam down your face. The pointing finger isn't the moon: the experience is not the mirror itself but you can't have the experience a Truemirror provides by "looking it up".
