    Edgerouter X speeds with QoS on? (+VPN/worst case)

    Thank you to everyone for being direct and to the point, the answers I got from ubiquiti were pretty vague... What would people suggest the clear upgrade path is then? If I leave out VPN (or have that client side for now, so the top tier router on the internet only has to sort QoS for VOIP and...

    Edgerouter X speeds with QoS on? (+VPN/worst case)

    I've seen benchmarks but I don't recall seeing any with quality of service turned on. I'm even further curious whether other features can slow it down further - ie whats an absolute worst case that this router is capable of handling? What slows it down the most? I'm looking for something that...

    am I silly for wanting Fibrechannel or/and Infiniband?

    Expanding slightly on the previous... part of what i'm learning is whether I should ever expect to really need a SAN or whether a NAS will be able to do the job just as well. The biggest use is going to be editing and processing terabytes of high resolution video footage, but there will be...

    What do I need to learn? (need to design a SAN/NAS up to 300TB))

    In reverse order, THANKS bernard for your suggestion, I had not considered that at all, and I forgot sometimes that tech colleges CAN be looking for "worthwhile projects" like that to pursue since they need something to learn about and try to solve anyways. I will definately be following up...

    what even ARE all the modern open source router options?

    Just to followup (been swamped-busy with stuff so forgot i'd posted things) one of my problems is that the fastest internet i'll have for now is 25meg down and 3meg up. So the QoS is essential for VOIP use. So really any router which is well skilled and handling something under those...

    am I silly for wanting Fibrechannel or/and Infiniband?

    The purpose of the NAS/SAN is a progression of priorities. First cheap storage (the first bottleneck is 'having enough'), second performance (the next bottleneck will be time to do things), then reliability (the third bottleneck is not having downtime/deadlines). Trying to store ridiculous...

    am I silly for wanting Fibrechannel or/and Infiniband?

    One month later and no opinions? :P The article that I believe led me here in the firstplace was the budget home FibreChannel SAN/NAS, I was hoping maybe some experts on here would have some insight or that others had replicated or played with such configurations...

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    That's actually one of the secret strengths of SnapRAID - since it works over the top of the filesystem to achieve RAID like functionality, the files themselves are untouched. There's no data to migrate into or out of some specialized filesystem or even disk format - it's not like setting up...

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    Any reason it cant be both for now? I assumed as long as the bandwidth of a single shared disk was enough it would be fine. I'm starting out single user, and future multiuser may well be set up to access different volumes at the same time to literally stay on separate drives.

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    Thats good to know! Though I will probably be hitting multiple millions at some point... many many small WAV files and sound effects in a huge library, many texture files and stock photography images, etc. Doesnt taking snapshots create huge files though like redundant backups almost? Or I...

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    Thanks for the heads up. Reading up there I guess it doesnt do storage pooling, though that isn't 'life or death' critical just a nice to have. It looks like large files are better - has anyone had experience with many small files? (million plus) Is there some recommended range of # of files...

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    Right and those are part of my starting positions. I dont need the speed of RAID, i'm more concerned about file recovery and scalability. Perhaps everyone isn't familiar with my other posts so I guess I better redo a short version - I wanted to build a system that could start maybe around 30TB...

    I think I want to use SnapRAID (talk me into or out of it :)

    Btw I haven't caught up on ANY of the past postings yet, was out of town and there was a bunch of talk on some threads here if i'm not mistaken... so if something is redundant advance apologies, I just wanted to sit this out to bake for a little first. I stumbled across SnapRAID the other...

    what even ARE all the modern open source router options?

    Wireless irrelevant to me, i'm one of those people who is sensitive to it. I'm also willing to put a single commercial wireless router on a light switch on the opposite side of the house so the girlefriend can flip it on the few times she needs it to load games or updates to the cellphone and...

    what even ARE all the modern open source router options?

    By modern I mean the software is up to date - not that it's only running on fast modern routers. Even "fast ethernet" 100mbit routers can be on the list provided the aftermarket firmware upgrades are not 8 years old like apparently DD-WRT is.(?) Reading responses to my other post here on QoS...
