I hope someone can give me some advice on this.
I'd like to setup a low powered server at home, something not too expensive but that could do things such as :
-be connected to few cctv cameras through wireless and wire and monitor motions, saves videos of detections.
-allow me to run backups and save my other laptops data in the server hdd.
-allow me to run some normal programs such as torrents etc.
What sort of hardware would you advice in order to build something appropriate for the tasks I need?
and yeah, I'd like to run ubuntu on it, do you think that will do the job?
