Re: NAS raid with Debian?

As above, the iomega ix2-200 meets these requirements, and I only paid about AUD$280 for mine including 2x1TB disks 2 years ago. You can probably get them even cheaper these days. They were much cheaper than equivalent QNap or Synology boxes at the time. I'm experimenting with BTRFS on mine at the moment, which seems to work at least as well as EXT4+RAID 1 for my work loads.


Thanks! Nigel,

That sound about like what I'm looking for.

Amazon has the Iomega 35550 StorCenter IX2 2 bay 4TB (2x2TB) for US $333. This seems to be a newer model of the one you have. Some of the reviews sound pretty good. Though, there were a few reviews complaining about DOAs.

Are there instructions for putting Debian on it, assuming there's nothing about the 35550 that might cause problems?

They also have the Iomega 35427 StorCenter ix2-200 2 TB (2 x 1TB) for US$289. Is this the model you have?
