[Youtube] ZFS tutorial: How to use older HW to set up a NAS


Post by VictorB »

I made a new video. Its show which older hardware you can choose to build your own ZFS NAS. The focus is on a 2006/2007 system and the video has lots of ZFS tips. So even if you want to use new hardware you can see what important!


I hope you will al LIKE this video and feel free to share it.


(After this one i will start with a Nas4free installation video)
