Hi guys, Its been a long time sense I posted on this forum but I was hoping for some thoughts from all you on a project Im thinking about working on. I have the need for a mac based server with lots of storage options, but not need for the Mac Pro's massive price. Recently I replaced my 2009 Mac mini (2.53 core 2 duo) with a new mini, it was doing home theater duty (Plex). Leaving me with the 09 Mini just sitting around. Making me wonder if I cant replace me large server (6x2TB drives) with the mini. After a bit of exploring I think I found a solution. If I take the top off the mini and pull out the HD and optical drive bay I will have access to 2 Sata II ports. If I run 1 port to one of the 2TB drives as a boot drive, and then the second port to a hardware raid Card I could support all 5 drives with the Mini. So with that said, here is the case I have been thinking about, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345017 and then for a hardware raid card I am thinking about this, http://www.addonics.com/products/ad5hpmrxa-e.php My plan is to most likely either jbob or raid 5 the drives on the card and then run Mac OSX 10.8 Lion Server on the system. As far as installing goes, My thought is just take the top off the mini, but other then that leave it more or less untouched, set it on the motherboard tray, connect the cables, power the drives using a spare Corsair power supply that I have and there you are, mini Mac Pro Server. I was hoping you guys could give me some thoughts on the project? Thanks and have a great day.
