Dell PowerEdge T20


Recommended Posts

I purchased the T20 (the $250 model on sale) for use as a freeNAS box. I did not like FreeNAS at all so I decided to try nanoboot. I flashed a drive put it in and BANG!!! it worked right out the box. Everything just worked. SO I have a i3 compatible box with 4GB of memory... fully expandable.. for 250 bucks. I put 4x4TB red drives in it and it is great. My only issue was that at first it was very very slow updating the GUI from what was happening on the box. But it seems as time is going on it is getting much faster. I am wondering if adding 8 more GB of ram would help this even more. Any Thoughts?
