Rack mount nas - total noob


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey, I've been lurking in and out of these forums for the last year but keep getting intimidated each time I decide I want to build a NAS.

I know what I want but have no idea where to start. My main goal in building a NAS is for personal photo/video and maybe movie storage. I have seen that there is something called Synology photos getting released, will I be able to use this with Xpenology?

I currently have a data cabinet setup and would like to build the NAS from an old server off ebay. 

I've nearly gave in and purchased a DS920+ multiple time, but every time I pull back due to the price and rack mount issue. 

If someone has the time, could you please lead me in the right direction on what I should be looking for in an old server to build something. TIA
