Jim – Zmodo Cam update – https://www.zmodo.com/ – Good look at it this week.  More to come


Mike – “New” UnRaid box named UnVault (thanks Renny for the name). Loving it. Currently have 2 4TB drives, 2 2TB drives, 1 500GB SDD and 1 120GB SSD. Total usable space 8TB and 310GB cache. Using TimeMachine through AFP to backup my Mac and Backupper Standard to backup windows machines to the UnRaid Box.

Why I like UnRaid so far – 1) EXTREMELY easy to setup 2) TimeMachine compatibility 3) very low RAM requirements, I am using only 4GB which it barely touches when not using Docker or VM’s 4) low power as it only spins up the drives it needs 5) space saving with only one parity disk needed 5) smart and easy use of SSD’s for cache.

Jim- Still selling those 8TB drives.  $100 each plus shipping


Jim – Took Stroj down.  Too much BW
