The NAS odyssey continues. The disks work, and we need to put them together in a reasonably optimal RAID array way. It necessitates some play with low-level formatting, block and stripe sizes of the RAID, and making sure that the filesystem settings don't mess everything up.

I need a NAS for the same reason that everyone needs a NAS. Unfortunately, I don't have a server room, so I need one that does not make any noise when idle. I could not find one, so I decided to build it. This post contains the bill of materials and a walkthrough the design and 3d printing of a NAS chassis.
