Need Server Recommendations
  • You could consider a couple of those SuperMicro server cases and link one as a JBOD via a SAS card… see things like I picked up a 12bay CSE-826 with a SAS3 backplane and two 80 Platinum redundant power supplies for $300. I know you’d need a larger one, but eBay is a great place :-)

  • Linux in hospitals?
  • None of the hospitals I’ve worked at (in the US) have used Linux, and I’m pretty surprised some do! Given that we used Internet Explorer up until the very last second before it was not supported, I don’t know if any change would be welcomed, unless a hospital somehow started out with Linux. But at the end of the day, it would be about to e electronic health record, if it was supported or not… I don’t know if Epic, Cerner, or AllScripts do!

  • is there any drawback to having too many partitions?
  • I’m not an expert, but one drawback is the potential for one partition to become full when the others are empty… However, it looks like you have several different file systems, so a leaner approach might not be doable. May I also recommend something like proxmox to virtualize different OSes, although I’m not sure that would meet your needs.

  • Best app to listen to a podcast in chronological order ?
  • Not sure if you’re on iOS, but I’ve used Overcast for years and absolutely love it. There’s a function called “sort by oldest/newest by podcast” which I use for exactly the function you’re looking for!

  • What is a good multirole server setup for a racked server?
  • I’m not sure why, but it seems like TrueNAS in a VM is not recommended (I saw a thread on their forum)… I also wanted the ability to add more drives later on, so I’ve gone with UnRAID and even though it’s only been a few weeks, it seems pretty functional and I’m glad I paid the licensing fee. I am trying to do Proxmox and OPNsense on one of those fanless N305 boxes and am getting very confused!

  • Replacement Proxmox (media/VPN torrent server) hardware suggestions
  • Hey of course, sorry for the delay, work has been crazy! I put this together from eBay and Newegg, I've installed UnRAID and am trying to get everything setup, moving Dockers from the tiny Lenovo to this, and replacing my Synology DS920+ eventually. The UnRAID forums are extremely helpful!

    CPU: Xeon E-2324G (eBay) Motherboard: Supermicro X12STH-F (Newegg) RAM: 4x 32gb NEMIX RAM MEM-DR432MD-EU32 CPU cooler: Supermicro SNK-P0074AP4 (Supermicro) Case: CSE-826BE1C-R920LPB (eBay) PSU: included in case HBA: Supermicro AOC-S3008l-L8E (eBay) NVMe: HP EX900 512gb (Newegg) SFP NIC: X520-DA2 (eBay) HDD: combination of 8 10TB hard drives - Seagate Exos ST10000NM0226 or HGST UltraStar 0B42258 (2 parity drives)

  • Replacement Proxmox (media/VPN torrent server) hardware suggestions
  • Idk if this will help, but there are plenty of SFF systems on eBay, but I’d just be careful about what you want… I thought those looked good and bought a Lenovo but then wanted 10Gb Ethernet for a NAS and now I’m putting together a 2U rack server! Not to say you’ll do the 180 I did, but just keep future expansion in mind…
