Post 3+ Months Ago

Well just to start off I had made a server with a SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O mobo with 32gigs ram and 7 WD red 4tb hard drives and a 250gb Samsung SSD for the os.

I am wanting to use this server strickly as my NAS with a possible web server as well.(but for now NAS)

I know that there is different Raid levels 0,1,5,6,10,60 and then Raid-Z

I am using a SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 to connect some of my drives and would not be seen with FreeNAS.

Now my question is would it be better to use Ubuntu with ZFS (raid-z) and samba or just use unRaid or what do you recommend?

Out of the 7 drives I know some will need to be used for the Raid. I need one setup in a way that if a drive/s fail it will be okay and I can recover the data. aka document files. I am going to use another raid in raid 1 for my files and then if I have a drive left over I will use it for whatever.

Thanks for the help.
