Serves mainly as a NAS, but also as the host for Plex, HomeAssistant and some other stuff.

        I choose to believe it’s 2003 and everyone envies how much storage I have.

      My trick is setting a monthly saving for this a few years ago. Today me thanks past me.

      Also, I started out with 2x 4TB in raid 1 in my previous server. Or really just an unused desktop with a 1TB disk before that.

        My very old HTPC which acted as a home server died a couple years ago and I just never replaced it lol. So my “server”/NAS is well, my own PC. Thankfully my 3800x/32GB RAM doesn’t seem to mind too much.

        Worst thing is, I’m a senior/lead developer, I’m very familiar with server administration, networking, provisioning and all that stuff. I just… never got around to it, I guess? It’s just expensive enough that I don’t want to get buyer’s remorse. I don’t really know what I want lol. I’m thinking Plex (although I want to move to Jellyfin) and Radarr/Sonarr/Lidarr. But also Docker and/or TV a small K8s cluster for personal projects and self-hosting some stuff… basically some general purpose thing?

          It’s why I went with TrueNAS. It has built in support for VMs and containers in K3s. So far it’s been super nice. A lot to read up on, but you seem to have the same background as me so it should be fine. I find it fun!
