I’m so happy right now, I love doing this. Now just gotta wait for the 10Gbit switch so I can start working on the 150TB storage server solution

    It’s going to be so much more prettier in here after I’m done!!

    @linuxxx here’s my parts list:
    2x USG-PRO-4
    2x US-48
    5x UAP-AC-LITE
    1x US-16-XG
    12x UF-SM-10G (12 pairs)
    1x CloudKey

    @ChainsawBaby Gotta be honest, i hardly know shit about hardware 😅

    @linuxxx I got two gateways, one for backup. A 10Gbit switch as backbone, connected to 2x 48 port switches.

    Going to create 2x storage servers, going on the 10Gbit network. One is 100TB “slow” storage, where we keep old projects.
    Then the 2nd storage server is connected twice to the 10Gbit network, it’s going to have nvme ssd + fast sas drives for insanely fast storage.

    Fast storage is going to be used for our 3D animators that wants to work towards a common server, to prevent having 3 different copies of each project on each of their computer. They’ll be on 10Gbit network.... so, it’s going to be insanely FAST

    Thoose switches are bad thou :/

    Just store it on the cloud....
    S3 has some good archival options too

    Are your switches powered over PoE or what is happening there?

    @Teknas @Artemix the cloud isn’t perfect. As Artemix said, in network outages, we wouldn’t be able to work, and with deadline. Don’t think our clients would approve us saying we didn’t get it done on time because no internet.

    We’re going to store backups of the storage server offsite, plus very old projects that’s only accessed once a year. Going to go for redundancy and get two cloud storage providers, because cloud providers fuck up too

    @Linux how come? Bad for what?

    @TobyAsE nah, I have some PoE injectors for the access points

    @Artemix I don't think Google or aws will mine data stored in their online buckets. Also... You can't possibly DOS Google and aws... They have systems in place to deal with that sort of thing on a regular basis.

    Restarting when a new config is being pushed, problem updating

    And btw, why use poe injectors when you have the switches?

    @Linux I haven’t had any of those issues, yet. But when doing changes in the unifi controller, it takes the device down for a bit to provision the updates out to it

    Yep, that is fucking stupid.

    @Linux don’t know, I don’t think it’s an issue really. It’s such a short time. And once it’s configured, you’re not really going to change it, well, that’s our use case at least

    Lets hope that you wont get the problems :)

    For us it is almost catastrophic, when we push a new config it causes a massive drop in the network causing the APs to bug out and all the Windows machines too.
    And after the connection is restablished our ddos protection is triggered and every PC gets blocked for 15 min

    Wrote a shitlong comment about what issues it caused in our environment, but devrant crashed :/

    @Linux haha, well, I’ve only tested it so far, the new equipment hasn’t been deployed yet. I think the Edgemax series is more what you’d be after, but it doesn’t have the smooth integration like Unifi has.

    I’m still waiting for the IT guy to give me a key to the server room and a list of all services running. It’s just been 2 weeks since I got our CXO to request it, and CXO is sending a daily reminder to the IT guy. My initial timeline was deployment was the previous weekend (2days ago), but now it seems to be in 2 weeks, since I’m going to Stockholm this weekend.

    Neither me nor the CXO is fond of the IT Guy 😂

    If you are in the UBNT beta program, there is now a EdgeMax controller on its way ;) used Edgerouter for many years
