I am in the process of beefing up my server in terms of capacity which is based on Ubuntu but will also be my media/home server.
My requirements are the following.
1) Have more than 1TB for TV recordings for Mythtv
2) Have about 1TB, redundant for family Photo & Video and the music library.
3) The rest would go to TV shows I recorded and compressed as well as my movie library that I digitized.
My problem is that I have 4x2TB ( 2x2TB WD EARS + 2x2TB WD EARX) . Without considering the fact that I have 4 physical drives, I was considering having 2x1TB for the Req. 2, and have 6TB for the rest (MythTV, Series and Films).
That would mean, from my limited knowledge of Ubuntu (Linux) that I would need to split 2 drive in 2 and group the rest together
sda [ sda1 1TB ][ sda2 1TB ]
sdb [ sdb1 1TB ][ sdb2 1TB ]
sdc [ sdc 2TB ]
sdd [ sdd 2TB ]
[ sda1 1TB ] + [ sdb1 1TB ] in Raid 1
[ sda2 1TB ] + [ sdb2 1TB ] + [ sdc 2TB ] + [ sdd 2TB ]
Is this solution pure fiction or possible? And even if it is possible, is there a better way? I am open to suggestions...
