Hello good people. I have been a long time viewer of the Youtube channel but my first time on the forum seeking your expertise.
So I am in the process of deciding what to do with my video editing/storage server build. The difference with your typical NAS build would be that it only needs to be up and running when I am editing on my PC and rendering.
Current hardware of the server is a i73820 16G DDR3 TP Link 10Gbps NIC. Along with this I have 2x6TB Drives and 2x4TB drives. With the intention of adding more in the future (even if I have to destroy the pool and start again). I know that the combination of disks I have is not ideal but it is what I am hoping to start with and get my feet wet with setting up the OS and drive pools and vdevs etc.
What would be the best way to approach the vdev and data pool setups in this case? Keeping in mind it would only be up for 10~12hours per day. I am looking for a balance in performance, storage space and integrity (priority in that order).
