after having spent some time with Jehanne and Harvey running over Windows 10 (and I am really impressed), I have made the decision that I want to use "a Plan 9" as a backup server for my various web projects (and possibly my code repositories and my nextCloud, just in case).
A full backup of all of them would sum up to quite a couple of gigabytes, so I'd probably perform incremental backups every day or so - there rarely are enough changes to make those large - with a full backup every month. Now I "only" have to decide about whether to use a (cluster of) RPi(s) with 9Pi or to rent another server and wait for a self-hosting version of Harvey or Jehanne.
So what I want to know is:
- How well does 9Pi perform when downloading and writing large amounts of data to an attached HDD (or even two of them)?
- Would you suggest me to just don't do that and why? (Or encourage me. Please encourage me.)
