£10-15 GBP / hour

Hi there, I am in the process of building my first DIY home nas/server. I don't have experience building PCs or configuring NAS software, but have spent a lot of time learning about it all over the past few months. I have begun purchasing the parts for my build. You can see my parts list here: [login to view URL] The list shows which parts I have already purchased. In short, I want to create a NAS in a RAIDZ1 config, with 8TB usable space (excluding boot + cache drives). I think the way to go is TrueNAS Scale, but I have also been recommended unRAID. I don't have any experience with this. My use-case is media storage and music streaming, probably using Plex, Jellyfin, Enby or Roon. I may also want to dabble with VMs as I get more advanced. Do you think you could help? The ideal candidate should have a proven track record in successfully implementing TrueNAS Scale, unRAID, ProxMox, or other NAS/server solutions, and be able to provide comprehensive support throughout the setup and configuration process.

Dear Client, As an experienced independent contractor with a strong background in systems architecture, I am qualified to offer a customized, dependable, and reasonably priced solution for your DIY network attached storage project. Hardware: I checked your list. It’s a superb combination for the 8TB data storage with RAIDZ1. 32GB system RAM is a good choice. The redundant boot pool of the two Samsung 250GB SATA SSDs will enable the NAS to operate with consistent dependability and lightning-fast performance & 1 TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVME will fulfill your need for caching. The 650W Corsair PSU will give you an uninterrupted service. NAS OS: In terms of NAS OS I would suggest you to go with the TrueNAS Core/Scale rather dan UnRAID Because its stability, security, and extensive feature set. These systems provide user-friendly interfaces for easy management and configuration. You could have all of your services at TrueNAS like Plex, Jellyfin, Enby, media storage and music streaming. TrueNas has great jail and container facilities. Backup & Documentation: I will implement A robust backup strategy to safeguard your data from unforeseen events, potentially utilizing automated backup routines. I will also provide comprehensive documentation on the system setup, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting guidelines. I am excited about the possibility of working together to create a high-quality, customized NAS solution for you. Best Regards, Kazi Asif Imtiaz
