Custom FreeNAS Server

  • CPU:: Intel i5

  • System Drive:: 120GB WD Green

With devices such as tablets, laptops and desktops being so cheap these days you might want to keep all your files in one location. The simplest solution is to use cloud storage but where’s the fun in that? Especially when you have to wait for your files to sync to your devices.

I decided that the best way forward was to invest in a NAS Server. The only trouble was that NAS servers are expensive especially if you’re a student. Since I’m studying Computing at University, I decided that the best way forward was to build my own Nas Server. After doing some research, I found that NAS servers don’t need to be high spec. You can actually build one on a Raspberry Pi! In fact, that’s where I began my journey.
