Planning a NAS upgrade: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
For Ubuntu 16.04 LTS I intend to upgrade and move away from my trusted mdadm RAID. For this use I will be testing to see if there are any new file systems that show some versatility in RAID creation, expanding and maintaining.
I will be looking at BTRFS for my RAID1 and RAID5 needs and MHDDFS for JBOD.
Part 1: BTRFS RAID 1
Part 2: BTRFS RAID 0 & conversion to RAID 5
Part 3: BTRFS RAID 5
Part 4: MHDDFS
Part 5: Conclusion
