White wood mini-tower of 3 x H2

Post by domih » Tue May 05, 2020 8:36 am

Little new project: a white wood mini-tower of 3 x H2 with 5-disc cage with which you do not need to disassemble the whole thing to replace a drive. I'll use only 3 hard disks, one for each H2. An ATX SFX PSU will power the 3 x H2 and the disks. It will be used for a replicated NAS and a 3-node Cassandra server. The latter is because any home must have a Cassandra server :-)

See picture below. As the French says "y a plus qu'à"

Nice project, why do you need a distributed database?

For the shopping list and cupboard items, what else?

Mostly testing ideas, writing HOWTOs in relation to professional work.

Also I'm really interested in evaluating whether or not the algorithms used to distribute PB of data on thousands of commodity PCs are ALSO useful to distribute storage and data processing on SBCs with limited resources.

And here I was thinking (because of @mad_ady) you were creating a shopping list for the entire country

Update
- Corner braces to assemble shelves with side panels,
- Velcro tape to fix PSU, H2 column and HDD cage to shelves: easy removal for maintenance without fooling around with cramped space for (un)screwing, dampened vibrations for HDD cage and resonance,
- 3.8 x 36" wood to build front mesh frame,
- Plastic back front mesh,
- Loctite to assemble front mesh frame and glue the mesh to it.
