I am planning to build a NAS for 2K Edit and stream with uncompressed footage. Hardware that I am planning is

MOBO : Asrock X570 Taichi

CPU : AMD Ryzen 5600X

CASE : SILVERSTONE CS380

RAM : 128GB

HDD : 10/12 TBx 9 Exos/Ultrastar 5000 series

NIC : Intel 10Gbe X540 T2

SSD : 2x WD SN850 500GB ( 1 for boot and another for L2ARC)

GPU. : Radeon 6800XT (Just for the installation)


Please let me know whether this works well with Truenas SCALE and Truenas Core. I will use integrated SATA bus from Mobo.

Any thought on EXOS vs ULTRASTAR?

Thank you

How is this different from your thread from 3 months ago, where you asked for help building a NAS that supports 8K video?

Yeah, I know. I was hoping to get a mellanox 100Gb switch and Mellanox cards too. Due to to chip shortages the waiting period is too long and vendors are not even giving an estimate.

Then I got 1 promise pegasus system. I suppose for emergency I could build one midrange machine.

What are your thoughts?

A single workstation hard drive can do 4K video streaming and editing if only one user at a time
