Cn someone suggest a 4 bay, low power, small build

Recommended Posts

This is something I want to get as an alternative to commercial NAS like Qnap/Synology for my family. Don't need more than 4 bays. It needs to be of similar size, power/noise levels and I don't need ultra fast cpu.

 

If there is some SFF pc which comes with a motherboard/cpu combo (like NUC's do) and has 4 drives, that I can just buy, I'd really prefer that. I am under time limits as I'm traveling this weekend, and I cannot ship parts where I'm going.

Just about any mITX motherboard is going to have 4 SATA ports and so all you need to do is find a small mITX enclosure with room for four 3.5" HDDs.

 

Lots of other options - hot swap? tower vs. shoebox vs. flat case design? IPMI?

 

Getting an NUC with a separate Thunderbolt storage box would be an option too.
