I want to build a lo-cost server and want to use twin G-Technology 4TB G-DRIVE Professional External Hard Drives with the Pi as server running gphoto2, openswan and samba to stream and store jpeg files from a time lapse camera.
Does anyone have any experience with the pi using usb3 and these drives?
The reason I want this drive is that I already have several of them connected to my macs and I'm very happy with the way they perform.
I plan to process 1 Gb of data per day from the camera which is controlled by a remote pi using openswan and samba. This streams to the Pi server here at the office. I hope to eventually have 10 cameras streaming to the server and a rack of hard drives. It needs to be a fairly large set up as I get a lot of data as the cameras run 24hrs per day.
