Re: How to build a Soho Server?
While building or designing a SOHO server, there are few things you need to consider:
- A SOHO should be reliable in terms of performance. It should work 24X7X365. Though there should be occasional downtime for maintenance work of the same.
- It should be having very huge storage capacity to store data. I suggest you to get the hard disk of 2 TB at least.
- The data safety should be the main factor. You should simply configure the server with RAID storage. It helps to avoid data loss when hard drive gets failed. Also performance seems to be increased when server is under of heave load. If you are planning to RAID setup, more hard disk need to purchase for the same. It will save data from various dangerous situation. Even though you had implemented RAID storage system I recommend that you should take backup of the data at regular interval of the time.
- Normally we are considering SOHO server as file or print server. You should install sufficient number of processor and memory so that you can add functionality on the sever whenever needed.
