HC1/HC2 NAS

Unread postby NewbieHC1HC2 » Mon Aug 06, 2018 6:50 am

each unit has 1 ssd installed.
My question is I need qty 4 drives in my NAS.
1) Do I require 4 HC1/HC2 units? 1 per SSD?
In either case (2) what determines them to show as a single NAS unit on the network and be controlled as one unit setting up and managing sharing/access/etc?
(3) Do I need to purchase the "STACK" TO HAVE THAT SINGLE CONTROL/ single NAS look/action?

I WILL READ UP ON THE STACK MORE THIS EVENING. BUT STILL NEED CLARIFICATION FROM HARDKERNEL PLEASE.
If so, (4) would the controlling HC [unit 5] share it's drive in the NAS or maintain separately? or optional to add it to NAS as well?

Can I RUN RAID? WRITE TO ONE AND SPECIFY COPY TO A SECOND DRIVE. (WRITING TO TWO OF FOUR DRIVES ONLY WITH COPY TO TWO DRIVES)

I WILL BE PURCHASING ANOTHER SEPARATE SBC/OS UNDETERMINED AS A WORKSTATION TO KEEP ON SIDE TABLE/ACCESS FROM MY DOWN STAIRS CHAIR.
SO POSSIBLY 6 SBCs PURCHASE HERE.

tHANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR VALUED TIME AND SHARED KNOWLEDGE WITH A NEWBIE!

No, you can't have 4 drives like a NAS, and you don't have "single control" with RAID.
But, you can run GlusterFS on multiple units (or a stack). GlusterFS can give you some of the features you want.
You can read about it in some articles here:
