JulesL presentation of my project

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I’m new here so let me introduce myself.

Im Jules, between France and Switzerland.

My project is to build a machine with 2 VM

- PFSense

- XPenology

I don’t know exactly what type of hardware is compatible with XPenology and what type of hardware will correspond with my future setup.

So I have already got a DS216Plus for surveillance.

But I would like to create a more powerful installation that will be use for photo and files transfers + Backup

I have a 500GB SSD that I can use for the cache and I will need 5 TB of storage minimum. What is the best plan for HDD (Type of RAID?)

I’ve still got some questions:

Is anyone running Xpenology on a VM ?

Which software do you use for Virtualisation?

 

 Thank you

Jules

Thank you,

I was just wondering if you could give me some advices for the CPU.

I have no idea of the load, so I don’t know if I should buy a Pentium/I3/I5.

And if the task of DSM are more about single core => Better clockspeed or multicore => more cores

Thank you

jules
