How do I hoard more stuff after my Plex server runs out of HDD slots?

Long time lurker, mostly to pick up deals on storage media (you guys are great when it comes to discounts, thanks for that).

I’ve been running a Plex server at home for a few years now. I’ve updated it’s hardware a couple of times, with the latest update coming 2 months ago. This newest update allowed me to put in up to 6 3.5″ HDDs. That’s about how many SATA ports I could see on the mother board. So far, I’m running through storage and I’m down to the last 2 4 TB (each) HDDs. At the rate I’m going, I should be out of space by summer 2022.

I’m not very tech savvy, so this is where I need help on how to move forward. Looking around a little bit, some recommendations point to getting a NAS. I did some research, and I’m not sure if it’ll be the best fit for what I’m doing (building up my Plex library).

I’m reading up on this sub’s wiki and looking at the [hardware suggestion](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/wiki/hardware#wiki_cpu.27s) section, and if I were to get something from the mid tier or DAS range, what do I connect the hard drives to the mother board (as stated above, I’m using all SATA ports)?

What about a disk array shelf? Or do you think that’s overkill? Right now, I’m looking to ramp up to around 10 HDDs as I get close to running out of space.

Any and all help/suggestions/recommendations are greatly appreciated.

  1. I just run my Plex with my GSuite drive 🙂 Just keep on adding stuff without any worries about space.

  2. Replace 4TB drives with 14/16/18TB and youll have a LOT more space to work with.

  3. If you need more SATA ports then get an HBA card. This is what I got: [https://www.ebay.com/itm/324466623200](https://www.ebay.com/itm/324466623200)

    I have a old motherboard that only supports SATA II. I got the above HBA card and I’ve got 8 HDDs hooked up to it using a SAS to SATA break out cable. I’m using the onboard SATA II ports for miscellaneous drives.

  4. You can get a NAS, or if you like your current case and setup, and you have more room to add more drives, you can get a PCIe-to-SATA adapter card to just add more drives to your current machine. Here’s one:

    I can’t vouch for its quality – it’s just the first one I found with 10 ports, but there are plenty of others.

    Not sure I understand – a NAS/DAS is a completely separate piece of hardware with its own connectors for disk drives. It doesn’t rely on anything from your current machine, so whether you have free SATA ports on your machine now or not, it doesn’t matter.

    A NAS will let you set up your drives as a RAID array of course, which is good for speed and reliability. You can set up your current drives as a RAID array without a NAS though.

  5. I recently built a das. Had an extra 4u server case. connected the psu’s with this [https://www.ebay.com/itm/121956345611](https://www.ebay.com/itm/121956345611)

    A sas card connects the drives in the external case.

    [https://www.ebay.com/itm/324215163518](https://www.ebay.com/itm/324215163518)

    It was a pretty easy project, feel free to dm me for more. Total including parity is low 40’s TB.

    don’t mind the mess, it’s gonna get cleaned up.
