      I'd never found a spanned drive raid solution that meant you would only lose the data on the drive that failed before, or not as far as I understood (that goes from raid 0 to raid 5!). So there is no way to have the extra recoverability features that UNRAID provides by using any of the standard 0 to 5 RAID protocols on their own? Does this mean you have to use software raid instead of hardware raid? Also If i'm understanding this parity thing right, you can backup say 30tb worth of data on to 1 10tb drive through some sort of glorified algebraic form of compression? The question is how to have that AND never lose more data than is on one drive if one drive fails? (while also having the drives spanned so that they are recognised by the system as a single volume for organisational purposes)

      Don't listen to Linus on building servers. He's the complete opposite of what you do if you need to build something reliable.

              why keep all that crazy sized raw footage? I'd just compress and put on cloud. Do you really go back to all that raw footage? ... someone has a HOARDER gene :D

                  You should ask YT directly how to do it.
                  They probably store 160TB of new data every five minutes, fully backed up, in multiple data centers and available forever.

                              Every time Linus installs a server for another youtuber he puts a little icon on the side of his car just like how fighter pilots put pictures of planes they have shot down.

                                    Very nice! And what about backup? If the drives with the initial data are not spinning regularly they might not last long...
                                    I guess there will be a part II for the backup server...

                                                  I'm a mix of the two worlds as I know a lot of the IBM guys who were on the project as I did their it system (now not way back).
