I’ve been lurking for quite a while now and trying to piece out a build of my own. My objectives are:
- An all-in-one build. I know a cheaper build can be put together by building separate NAS and transcode machines, but I’m looking for a single appliance I can put in my rack and manage
- The ability to expand over time (increasing RAM and storage as needed)
- Separate 4k and 1080p libraries, with enough compute to handle 4-5 1080p streams/transcodes and 4k direct play to an NVidia Shield Pro
- All necessary ancillary services (PMS, Solarr, etc.) running on this machine (potentially through containers/virtualization)
- Planning to run unRAID
With that in mind, any thoughts on the below build?
