Part 3: Building Direct Attached Storage

Part 3 of building the DAS storage. I repaired the workstation and got the direct attached storage (DAS) connected. 8*4TB SAS drives configured for now as a BTRFS Raid 1 mirror. Gives me 15TB of usable space. I will do a full parts list soon and also revisit this when I have tested it a bit.

Homemade DAS – Part1

I am building a direct attached storage (DAS) case that I will attach to my workstation using an external SAS card. External RAID DAS cases for SAS drives are not cheap so homemade it is! So far I have been assembling the parts, I have the drives, case, and lots of wires. I will do a more in depth video of the whole process later. You could use this as part of a NAS if you wanted.
