I have an old Hackintosh which I no longer use, except as a server to access 2 RAIDs made of 6 disks.
The machine is too big, uses too much power, makes too much noise, and generates too much heat to justify just being a file server.
So I'm looking for an economical way to 're-house' the disks in some kind of box/enclosure that will be smaller, quieter, and more energy efficient -- and which I will be able to access from my new laptop, preferably with Thunderbolt?
The 2 RAIDs contain 6TB of data; they were set up with Disk Utility:
- A 'safe' 4TB RAID 1 (mirror) made of 2 x 4TB disks, 3.68TB used
- A 'fast' 8TB RAID 0 (striped) made of 4 x 2TB disks, 2.41TB used
Is there a good NAS/enclosure/dock that will let me house the disks and not lose the data? I.e., will my machine 'see' the existing RAID structure?
Ideally it would be one box, like the Pegasus R6 -- which unfortunately is NOT available without disks.
And I don't really need the 'fast' storage anymore; I'm OK with putting all on one big RAID10 or RAID1 volume.
