Unraid NAS and VM/Docker Host

The Unraid NAS build is a professional-grade network storage solution that I designed and implemented. The build features an Intel i5-12400 processor, 64GB of RAM, three 18TB HDDs, a 2TB SSD, a 500W PSU, a motherboard, a network interface card (NIC) with two 10Gbps SFP+ ports, and a PC case.

Assembling the computer and creating the Unraid USB boot drive required advanced technical knowledge and meticulous attention to detail. I ensured that each component was carefully selected and expertly installed to optimize performance, reliability, and energy efficiency.

To ensure optimal network performance, I configured the two SFP+ ports on the NIC using 802.3ad bond mode. This allowed the two ports to work together to achieve higher throughput and better network redundancy, which is essential for professional-grade network storage.

The Unraid NAS build is designed to support a wide range of applications, with 25 Docker containers and six VMs currently running. The NAS is primarily used for network storage, but also hosts a Nextcloud instance for file and picture synchronization, a media server, a webpage server, a self-hosted RMM, a Security Onion for security monitoring, and a CUPS network printer server.

Overall, the Unraid NAS build is a powerful and flexible solution for professional-grade network storage. I designed and implemented the build using advanced technical knowledge, and the resulting system offers reliable and efficient operation for a wide range of use cases. This project showcases my technical expertise, attention to detail, and ability to design and implement complex systems.
