Back in 2019 we challenged ourselves to build an all-flash version of Lumaforge's Jellyfish hard drive-based video editing server for the SAME price. We succeed, but we've always wondered, what if we went for feature and hardware parity, how much could be saved? The answer might shock you.

i didnt know linus still made videos like this I love it brings me back to the old days when it wasn't all just news and reviews and was more of "lets see what crazy shit linus puts together in his parents garage today"

I can't wait to see the migration to truenas scales, if you want this server acting as more then a file server.

It is funny how many people think SLOG is for added performance boost. In reality it is intended to provide safety. Thusly Super-cap backed SSD's are recommended. In fact, get a hold of a few RMS-200/8G PCI-e cards with 8GB of DDR3 (You reviewed a similar Gigabyte card from the 00's, and THAT is what those could be used for... Those RMS-200 beasts do 5.5GB/sec unlimited write endurance and 1.4Mil IOPS. SLOG is all about latency. Those Sabrent will not last long before they fail catastrophically with the amount of data I suspect you intend to push through them. You will probably also fry those L2ARC SSD's plenty fast.

am i doing my math wrong on those Exos drives? 2.5m hours = 285 years?
gior nikitop
gior nikitop 3 kun oldin
your math is correct but the manufacturers are a bit misleading as always. the number is about the data in the disk platters ONLY, not the disk heads, circuits etc and if the platters are not damaged. most common (spinning) disk failures are caused by r/w heads fault (stuck), heads crashing to the platters, or circuit board fail. your data in the platters can theoretically be fine for 285 years IF you have a way to replace any of the other failed components, you can read them. in reality, for continuous operation, i'd say ~5years for most consumer disks and maybe even ~10 for some good enterprise models. but after that, they are basically zombies.

Speaking of stupidly over priced. LTT last I checked still used Resilio which costs like $20,000/year. LTT should do a video on an alternative to Resilio Connect that's not stupidly overpriced.

I have a question why did you use a /24 and waste 252 addresses? Wouldn’t it have been more efficient to use /30s or subsets that only have 2 host addresses for point to point links? I’m a network nerd and I have some Channel To Channel networks which use SDLC and I use /30 subnets on those. Just some background on that the Channel To Channel adapter is a way to couple 2 mainframe systems together so I’m using that to couple my Guest OS to the TCPIP service machine on zVM to provide networking to the Guest OS that is non-QDIO compliant otherwise I would use a Vswitch. I really enjoy your videos and maybe you can do a collaboration and help our local college out with a problem we have? Let me know! Kind regards, Vincent

Instead of using 10-series IP addresses, why not use the APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) subnet? One day, people will use APIPA. 🙄

SLOG is NOT a write cache. Even so with 10gb*10, max you would use is about half a terrabyte (5*10*10), and thats pushing it already.
