re: Thread for finding co-authorship/editor VIEW POST


I have initiated this project to build two servers (primary+backup), each 100TB+ for storing lab data (mostly optical microscopy but also some genomics).

ZFS on FreeBSD as software, 45-HDD boxes from Supermicro as hardware, Basecamp as peopleware. Limoncelli as bookware.

Looking for guidance how to describe and make this system better as it seems that home-made boxes are much cheaper&faster than commercial/university-provided options while robust and low-cost maintenance solutions. About hardware, software, but also about management expectations and users
