I’m building a Plex server. It will also be used to backup some home camera footage. I posted this build on Reddit and got some feedback but wanted to post here and make sure I wasn’t missing anything.
- OS: I’m most familiar with Windows but was thinking unRAID might be the best suited for my purposes and I’m willing to learn something new but can’t sink days into it. From my basic understanding unRAID aggregates all hard disk space and treats it as one drive which seems pretty straight forward and logical.
- Power supply? Can somebody please provide a recommendation?
- The server will be in the family room where the router is, so I’d prefer it not to be insanely loud. Is this going to be a problem?
