For the past few years, I been successfully running a Plex server on a Late 2012 Mac Mini, using a Drobo 5D drive for external storage.
This week, my Drobo bit the dust, so it’s time to re-evaluate my setup. I’m thinking that I keep running Plex on the Mac and build a separate Unraid NAS for storage, but maybe it’s better to move the Plex server as well?
Thinking about the Unraid NAS, would an NAS 5.0 build be my best bet? Any things I should particularly consider? I’m planning a case to maximize HDD capacity, like the Fractal Design Node 804. What’s the current group think on best CPU and MB?
