Planing my first NAS built and need some advice

TL:DR Read up on NAS Setups but feel I’m overdoing it and maybe burn my budget. Basically need a private server for Kodi.

Hello fellow hoarders. Hope you can help me out with some issues and questions I have. I’ll try to keep it as short as possible.

I never built a NAS or even PC on my own, but am eager to learn.
I’ve lost a lot of TB in my life so decided to get a reliable NAS to backup my data and have a way of extending storage space.

What I need:
– A way to backup my existing data (10TB so far) and be able to easily extend the space.
– Ability to synch Kodi on several devices to my library on the server.
– Be able to access the server remotely with a VPN.
– Keep my Data save and private from third parties. (pretty important to me)
– Have the ability to extend features of the server in future (for example with smart home applications).

What I looked at so far:
– I’m keeping a close eye on WD Red Plus HDD prices. Heard everywhere that it’s a reliable hard drive and better buy something once than deal with problems later. Preferably would buy 14TB drives.
– Searched for case’s and came across a [Silverstone case](https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=709&area=en) with 8 SATA slots with hot swap feature. ( Thought that hot swapping might be a good feature in the long run and easier to use for me)
– Then I searched for a mainboard that d support 8 SATA drives and fit into the case so I came across the [Gigabyte X299](https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X299-UD4-Pro-rev-10#kf)

That’s where my search basically stopped because the costs just seem to pile up without no end in sight.

I was planning on using Ubuntu rather than Windows, because of several bad reviews about Windows servers on one hand and my privacy priorities and flexibility on the other.

Now that the costs seem to extend my 1000€ budget I’m thinking about starting smaller. Was thinking to find a cheaper solution concerning the other hardware but still invest in two 14TB WD Red Plus, start off with a Raid 1 setup and then extend the hardware bit by bit till eventually getting a third drive and switch to Raid 5.

By now my head’s spinning with all the new information I’m trying to figure out the meaning of and get the feeling I’m getting lost in the process or am overdoing it for just wanting to start with a NAS to store my existing data and organize my movie collection.

What shall I do? Am I doing it right so far? Am I going the wrong way? Really need some advice on this project.

  1. I think building a computer can be a great experience to facilitate later hardware maintenance tasks. I built my first with (mainly) assistance. The thing I noticed then (20+ years ago), though, was it was much more expensive then buying one of those ready-built (commodity) machines. Not sure if that has changed now. Comments seem to suggest you can save money that way, unless that pre-supposes you have some components lying around?

  2. Buy a used enterprise server like a dell r720xd

  3. I’d rather use OpenMediaVault as an OS if simple storage is all you need

  4. > What shall I do?

    buy synology, really.

    > Am I doing it right so far?

    yes. And you seems already learned what building own nas is time consuming, pricey, complex, never-ending game. And if all you need is nas, not the nas build itself – there is very straight way for it.

  5. A NAS is a computer, if you can build a computer (you can!) building a server/NAS is no different

    Hardware RAID is dead, software RAID is now more reliable

    If your short on cash **you can not afford hot swap drive bays**, just get an old case with lots of 5.25″ bays, add [5 in 3 cages](https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Driver-Computer-Adapter-Bracket/dp/B0995RZS9G/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Stainless+Steel+5×3.5+In+SATA+SAS+HDD+Cage+Rack+Hard+Driver+Tray+Hard+Drive+Cage&qid=1637729488&sr=8-3) in the 5.25″ bays (use a hammer if you need to) add some fans

    Depending on how your operating system works and what programs you run an old computer is all you need with an [HBA card](https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=m1015+8i+it+mode&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=m1015+81+it+mode&_osacat=0&_sop=12) with [cables](https://www.amazon.com/Internal-OIKWAN-4xSATA-Forward-Breakout/dp/B088GL3NS2/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=FVEOFBDUAKPX&keywords=8087%2Bto%2Bsata&qid=1637729972&sprefix=8087%2Bto%2Caps%2C362&sr=8-2-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFZQUNTODFGOFNaRiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRJZD1BMDk1MDkyNjFMRFdISkhQMlZCT0omZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDQ0NDkyOVlMUkFXTVIyWTUzNCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1) is all you need for 8 drives (pretend it is an 8 port SATA card it is so much more)

    You can easily add [adapters](https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313&_nkw=487738-001&_sacat=0) to drive basically as many drives in as many cases as you want (At one point I had a NAS in two cases that had 42 drives…)

    The more processing power and RAM you need, the more expensive it gets

    Your right about one thing most of your money spent will be on drives

  6. Step 1, a NAS alone is not a backup.

    Step 2, RAID is not a backup.

    I second the suggestion of a DAS from another comment. I run a Lenovo SA120 attached to a Lenovo x3550-m5 server. Easy access to all of my disks, and no proprietary garbage getting in the way.

    With an all-included NAS, you have one box that houses the drives and has firmware to handle drive access and presenting the storage on the network. You can do the same thing with a white box enclosure and a freely available NAS OS. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want.

    As far as Kodi integration, you’ll want to present all your media using NFS or CIFS. Both protocols are supported in Kodi. CIFS is the protocol Windows uses for network shares. Most people use CIFS, and I suggest CIFS as well, unless you have a specific reason for NFS.

    Once the files are available on the network and accessable, consider utilizing a shared MySQL database in Kodi. This is done in advancedsettings.xml and sources.xml.

  7. How about a Das? I built one a few months back, love it. Super easy. 34 tb plus 12 tb parity.
