Raspberry Pi NAS with 60 hard drives and 1.2 petabytes of storage

Raspberry Pi enthusiast Jeff Geerling released the second part of a series on building a huge 1.2 petabyte Raspberry Pi NAS 60 HDD storage system and how you now found a way to make all hard drives work in a RAID configuration. Pi enthusiasts looking to build their own Raspberry Pi NAS should start with fewer hard drives, but use the project as inspiration to see what’s possible with a small but powerful Raspberry Pi mini PC.

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 or CM4 is a compact form factor designed to handle deep embedded applications, featuring a quadcore ARM CortexA72 processor, dual video output, and a wide range of other interfaces. The CM4 is available in 32 different flavors, offering different options for RAM and eMMC flash, and with or without wireless connectivity depending on your application and needs.

Check out the first and second videos in the PetaPi project embedded below.

“By far, this is the largest amount of memory ever connected to a single Raspberry Pi. Many thanks to 45Drives for making this possible! Sometimes you need to go slow to go fast – with 60 hard drives on 1 Raspberry Pi, I found a way to make it work in RAID! It’s not the fastest storage server in town, but it delivers around 70MB/s write speeds and consumes around 500W of power.”
