Terabyte

october 20, 2006

A few years ago, having 1TB of storage at home was a pipe dream. Now, it looks quite easy to do with inexpensive high capacity drives. I just recently achieved 1TB of storage in my house.

Total storage: 1.4TB. Backups? Damn straight. With this much data, backups are a must.  Almost half of the storage listed above is dedicated to backups.  Everything gets backed up to the Storage Server via rsync. The Storage Server has 2 x 160GB drives using software RAID0 for (semi-)daily backups. The Storage Server also has one USB 2.0 320GB drive for weekly backups. Right now, I don't have enough stuff between all the machines to fill up the 320GB of storage on the Storage Server. How much storage capacity are you running in your home currently?
