Not exactly a wall of servers but having 6 devices on my bookshelf is a large number.
3x4TB My Clouds
3x4TB My Books for mirroring the clouds.
Do I need all this? Actually no. This has become a wiring nightmare and I would have preferred just a single 6TB My Cloud and a single 6TB My Book; however what is done is done, I couldn’t resist the cheap Clouds that everyone was selling. I’ll try to do a little Cloud testing on the last set of Cloud and My Book that I bought.
Just thought I post up to show off how deeply committed I am to the Cloud
here is a photo of after applying the camouflage.
and the drives have actual book covers torn out from actual books…
You could do with camouflaging the sockets and the wires?
I may have a 4TB mycloud and mybook to sell. #frustrated
I moved the power bar as low as I can go due to the length of the power cable (although I could have placed them all cluster together so that the plugs could sit on the floor of which I did not think about that possibility till now next time!!)
Don’t tempt him…
Start a thread about your woes; we may be able to fix them.
understandable… as cpt says… post up your woes so we the users can fix them.
Doubt I want to buy another one… although 4x4tb makes a nice 16TB raid 5 server!!
Cool good effort.
What you could do is build a wooden box without bottom and back to conceal the sockets and then to each side of the book case like a conduit. The conduit on the left would be empty and the on the right with the wires. On top of the box where the sockets would be hidden, you could put a picture on top of it, maybe a lamp or a plant?
if you build it, they will come and look… (it is a cereal box with adhesive coverings).
ugly…but will suffice until I redo it again… next week…
Cool. It’s looking better.
Buy two 5A 12V power sources and connect all WDMC to it.
Camouflage it too (stick together few book’s covers)
Hide all cables (USB Wi-Fi?)
Or buy one PC, camouflage it and put all HDD’s to it
You idea has merit!!
I was thinking of buying one QNap TS-431 and stripping all 3x4TB Red from the clouds and using the 3 drives to create a 12TB raid 5 giving 8TB usable. The 3x4TB My books can attached to the ANap as external drives given me a powerhouse server that can sit in the closet. It won’t look as good, but it will certainly function a million times better.
