So one of the things I'm thinking of using the R-pi for is as a file server (most likely accessible via the internet by using something likeajaxplorer.
I presently have a USB enclosure, but it runs pretty hot after an hour or two with my 500 GB sata drive (so I'm using to backup and run my Wii games off of). This means I need a new enclosure for my R-Pi.
Here are the outlines for what I'm looking for:
1) Good cost to benefit ratio (inexpensive)
2) RAID 5
3) Fan (preferably quiet)
4) USB Preferred
I've done a little looking into of this front, but most raid 5 enclosures I've found cost thousands of dollars
I wouldn't mind having to purchase multiple enclosures that attach to one another to create a RAID 5 array rather than one large enclosure either.
Has anyone had found an enclosure like this that you particularly enjoy?
