>using a raspi to control multiple harddisks over USB I hope your USB power is adequate and stable I know of a guy who lost a few tb of data using a similar setup due to the raspi having unstable USB powrr
>>52472723 USB2.0 is really slow for NAS storage, you'd need eSATA, USB3.0 or even firewire 800 as a bare minimum, also anything over 2tb you might want to consider RAID as fuck losing multiple terabytes of data.
>>52472723 because if its anything like the raspberry pi it uses a usb ethernet adapter. accessing the hard drive over usb 2.0 is already a huge bottleneck without taking the ethernet into consideration
>>52472723 Unless the SoC has atleast 1 Sata port or Esata Port your going to lose data.
Read these 2 articles and come back after if your still interested in arm based storage http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/05/10/product_round_up_arm_mini_computers_the_best_and_the_rest/ http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/udoo-mini-pc-has-four-times-the-power-of-a-raspberry-pi/
>>52472723 One big problem I have seen commonly reported is USB HDD docks with more than 1 HDD seem to have a tendency to disconnect drives randomly. It seems unless you buy a super expensive NAS or ESATA/TB dock your pretty much going to have problems.
