Post your server/storage/media center

There really isn't anything like this anywhere. Thought it would be fun.

Have a mac mini hooked up to a DAS, have an NAS w/ lots of storage?

Have an actual server rack? Whatever you got, post it up!

Post up what you have and what you use it for. I'll add mine in tomorrow (Mac Mini Server 2011 w/ Firewire Drobo (4 x 2TB Seagate LP) for a total of 5.4TB of redundant storage.

My homebuilt unRAID server. Intel Ivy Bridge i3 components. Super quiet, low energy usage. 5.44TB capacity. Plenty of room for expansion.

I use it for file storage.

I use a Synology 413j and a few other drives for storage. I also have a 2010 Mac Mini for serving up media in a variety of ways ( direct connections, PLEX, iTunes, Airfoil, etc..). I also use DS Audio app on the Synology quite a bit for music.

How do you get any work done with the comfy looking chair. I would pass out in seconds!

I guess the answer is that I don't do very much "work" in the space.. I wasn't even in the market for a chair when I bought it, but it was a match made in heaven for those times I want to recline and listen to music.
