Researching a plex question that took me to reddit which lead me here… what a great looking site BTW. I was thinking of buying an off the shelf NAS to learn and play with networking but after reading through this site I’m 100% building from scratch!
I’ve built my home system, run linux (still a newb at this somewhat) and write small programs so I know my way around a computer enough to go down the wrong rabbit hole but the networking side of things is new to me. I’m hoping some of you fine folks would be kind enough to answer my questions as I dive deeper into this world!
My vision for what I’d like to learn and build is a system that would allow me to:
- host VMs to run different windows environments for testing
- general storage location for other computers on the network
- a cloud host for photos from my phone (maybe owncloud unless others have a suggestion that would work more securely
Any thoughts on which build would work for this the best?
Lastly, thanks for making a space for people like me to learn and grow from!!!
