LinusTechTips and Me Built…What?


– Hey, what’s good, guys? Welcome back to TechSmartt,
and I’m here with basically the tech dad. You guys know him as Linus Sebastian, AKA Linus Tech Tips, and
Linus had this crazy idea. So, you might have seen, I mean, you just tell them the idea. – This wasn’t my idea, this was your idea! – Basically– – You came to me, you’re like, oh Linus, I have no idea
where we’re gonna store all of our video footage! Whatever shall I do? – So, I went to Linus and was like, hey, I need a server because
we’re expanding a lot here. Allegedly, this has 140 terabytes in it. Is that right? – Well, that’s not actually in here now. This is just an empty box. – I haven’t built anything ever, so we’re about to build a fat server. Is this is a NAS or a RAID? I’m a noob when it comes to this. This is my first time. – This is 140 terabytes of precision manufactured electronics. – That is the gas. Whoa. – Oh, you got 12s. – You helped me set this up. I don’t even know. This is the first time
I’ve opened this box. – No, Seagate hooked
you the (censored) up. So, that’s 180 terabytes. – So, just to give you guys a background, I have never built anything technical. The channel might be called TechSmartt, but that is the complete opposite. – I mean, the “smart” is with two Ts. – Okay, how do I do this? – You’re holding it wrong again. Okay, here hold my hand,
right there, hold my hands. I really do feel like you’re tech dad. Just stop, just stop, you’re killing me. No, don’t move that hand! No, don’t move that hand! So, they’re rated for use altogether, so even when they’re
vibrating next to each other, that’s cool, that’s safe. And, perhaps most importantly, they have included data recovery service. – Ooh, so if one of these
fails, I mail it in, and they’ll help it out? – And as long as it is recoverable, they will do their best, within reason. Have you been careful with
this for the last few months? ‘Cause they knew who
they were sending it to. “Handle with care please!!” Two exclamation marks right there. – Two Ts, two exclamation marks. It makes sense! Wow, 45 drives. I only count 15. What’s up with that, Linus? – Because their original enclosure was all about 45 drives in a 4U chassis. Now they have models with 15, 30, 60. Take your time. – Oh wait, do you want me
to put the box back up, you wanna put the box up? – No, get out of the way! Do you even have a screwdriver? – Yes, of course. Phillips, flathead, what do you need? – Phillips. – You see how quick that was? – See how he doesn’t know that computers don’t use flatheads? He doesn’t have one. Do you have the screwdriver yet? – [Keaton] No, do you
need Phillips or flathead? I forgot.
– Phillips! Whoever edits this, you
gotta leave that in uncut so people know just how
short the period of time in between me telling him
what screwdriver he needs and him forgetting what it was. – All right, I got the flathead for you. – So, first step is
you’re going to take off those six screws. Do you remember where they are? – Come on, dad, don’t
embarrass me like this in front of my audience, man. – I don’t think anyone could embarrass you in front of your audience more than you’ve embarrassed yourself
in front of your audience. – All right, let’s open
this up, tech quickie! – So, just like a normal computer, it’s got a CPU, but it’s a Xeon instead of a Core i5 or a Core i7. Basically the same damn
thing, but more expensive. Then you’ve got RAM. – [Keaton] How much RAM is
this and why don’t we have all of these filled up? – This is eight gigs of RAM, and the reason we don’t have
it all filled up is that this is just a storage machine, and it just doesn’t really need it. – And if it looks like I’m sweating, I’m just nervous to be around dad. I haven’t seen him in a few years, so it’s a little toasty in here too. – You’re making me feel
very uncomfortable. This is the power supply, so this supplies the power, okay? – [Keaton] That’s what it means, okay. – Then right here, we’ve got an SSD. We will probably not
end up using this one. I think you and I are probably
gonna run down to Fry’s. This right here is just a USB drive. Yeah, so this is actually gonna
hold our operating system. Like, you don’t boot off a hard drive, we’re actually gonna boot up off this. – [Keaton] What else we
got in here that’s new or that I need to know? – [Linus] These cables, and these cables, and all these cables. These are for the metric
whackton of drives. This is the Storinator AV15. So, all your drives are gonna go shoop, shoop, shoop, shoop, shoop, all the way across here, and this thing’s gonna
get real heavy real fast. So, we’re gonna have 180
terabytes of raw storage, but, using unRAID, we actually lose the capacity of one of them. So we’re gonna have 168 usable, but what that means is that extra one is doing what’s called parity. So, parity means that
any one of these drives can outright fail, burst into flames, so you would actually not even notice. You could have your machine
running the whole time, you could have all your
stuff safely backed up away from, you know, mother Google. No monthly fees, no BS, no nothing. Everything here belongs to you. – So Linus, now that we’ve got basically everything out of the box, some stuff still in the box, what do we do now? – There’s not actually a
lot of assembly required, so all we gotta do is
take all those drives and put ’em in here. Do you guys have knives? – We don’t have those in the States. That’s a Canadian only product. – We just have guns. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang! Okay, so the way to tell how this goes in is you’ve got the connector. See, it’s kinda off to the side. – I’m so happy you came, Linus. It makes me feel so good
knowing I get the time that we once had growing up, you know? – Makes him feel so good
knowing that I came. So he’s a pleaser. That’s good, that’s how I brought you up. – Who is the funniest out
of everyone else in tech? – Who’s the funniest in tech? Wow. Tech people aren’t really
known for their funny. – TechFunnyy over here, bro, with two Ys. I don’t know about that. – You’re not really in tech. – Oh, can we get the fog horns going? – Just stop, stop, you’re killing me. – Wow.
– Look at that. – This is really sweet. So, you’ve done this before
with MKVHD, iJustine, maybe there’s some others.
– Yep, Austin. – Austin too. – No, Austine one, the first Austin. – All right, dad, so what is next? – So now all we gotta do is
connect it to your network, so we need your network switch. – So yeah, what is that? – Just stop, stop, you’re killing me. – All right, our network
switch is way over there, so we’re gonna head to Fry’s, which is gonna be so awesome, and go grab a really long cable. So, cat six.
– Yeah, sure. – I don’t know, we getting,
like, a Siamese cable? What kind of cat? – You can pick whatever color you want. – It’s adoption. I wanna get black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow. You know Whiz Kalifa,
that name ring a bell? I love it. – It’s funny, ’cause I
think you’re an idiot when it comes to tech, and then you think I’m an idiot when it comes to, like, anything cool. – Stuff that’s pop culture, cool. I’m the definition of cool. This is the aisle I’ve never been down, ’cause I get always so
scared and self-conscious that daddy’s gonna hit me
if I buy the wrong thing. I’m the definition of cool. – So, you still are
gonna need cache drives, but they don’t have to be as big. – I’m broke though, bro,
I can’t afford the cache. – Yes you can. So, they don’t need to be as big, because what the cache drive does do is it lets you copy files
onto it a lot faster. So the cache lets you write to it fast, and then it sits on the
cache, and then overnight, it’ll flush it to the hard drives. What this is is this
has eight gigabyte ports and two 10 gig ports. So what this would allow you to do is have an ingest station that
has a fast link to the NAS. So, when you’re copying things over, you can copy at 200,
300 megabytes a second. Marquez didn’t do this and
emailed me the other week and was like, hey, so I’m– – When you’re in town. – I think I probably
should’ve done the SSDs. – Thank you, Marquez, I’m
not making that mistake. – What I’d really like to
do is go with 860 pros, and we need two. (upbeat jazzy music) Wanna do a haul video? – Let’s do a haul!
– We’ll do a haul! So, we got– – Don’t dump it out on this. – Okay, so we got our 10 gig switch. – A little more emotion and excitement. Hold it up to the camera, do the hand. The cameras have a hard time focusing. They have to do it with their hand so it grabs the focus. They’re like, so this brush
here looks really nice. – Another ethernet cable. That’s your girl voice? And then we got a couple one terabyte SSDs that we’re gonna use for a data cache. – We also lost the screws. – They’ve gotta be somewhere. We probably have it on
camera where we put them. – Can someone just, you know what, let’s just stop it and we’ll
go back and we’ll find them. I feel like I’m in NASCAR right now doing a pit stop change. – Do you have a knife? That’s a tough sticker. – Screwdriver. – Okay, well, I mean, if you
were gonna open it like that, I could’ve done that. Fine, you know, I mean, why even? There. Okay, so I’m gonna hold this for you. Take out one of these screws. So, we’re doing a little trick where SSDs have no moving parts, so they don’t really need to be held in that well, so we’re taking the screws from one and we’re using it for two. – Someone at home is gonna
try to build their own NAS and it’s gonna catch on fire, just because of this one thing. – Your ratchet is going the wrong way. Are you not noticing that this
is a ratcheting screwdriver? – See, ratchet in my generation, Linus, that means a whole different thing. – Do you need me to
show you how to use it? – Maybe. – So now, we’re gonna
take out the other HP1. – [Keaton] Yeah, I wanna
do the second clip. You know me, I wanna do it, I wanna feel like I’m contributing. – [Linus] Here’s our data cable. I’ll let you do the other one. Are you sure you’re putting
it on the right way? – I am a little scared, not gonna lie. – There’s an L shape. – Yeah, right there – I still can’t see what you’re doing, so I’m just worried. – You gotta trust me, dad. It’s been 21 years. Oh, I don’t wanna disappoint
you and mom, no, no! – It’s a really fragile connector. You shouldn’t need to wiggle it. – Do it for your country,
do it for your country! All right, I tried. – Can I see? – Oh, did it with one hand. Do you wanna close your
eyes too on this next one? – I could. Our cache is installed! – Nice! – We got that cache. You can say that, right? That’s what the kids say? Open that. – Sweet! You’re making this so hard. – I didn’t know you were that into tech. – Whoa! Dude, I’m just fiending for the gear. – So we gotta go put this
next to your wireless router and plug it into the wall. And also, you need to plug this into one of the network
ports on the wireless router. So guess what you get to do now? – Call the number and say we need help? – No, you get to turn it on. – Here goes the switch, Ev. You ready, you cutting this? You getting this? Big moment, big moment. – Big moment, you gotta
press the power button. – I hit the power button back here. – Yeah, that’s for the power supply. – See, this is why I need the help. – You turned it off. No, you turned the power supply off. It was on out of the box. – Bro, no it’s not, now it says it’s on. – Oh, it’s not plugged in. – Oh! – So, who’s editing this? How much do I have to
pay you under the table to make sure that all
the embarrassing stuff- – [Keaton] Oh, it’s gonna be in there. – [Linus] Makes it in? – It’s on ’cause I plugged it in, and that would mean it’s on, ’cause I plugged it in. (laughing) Do you see a green light
on the motherboard? It’s on. There’s a blue light. (clicking) (humming) Oh! – All right, so I’m on the same network, so theoretically, all I have to do is type in http://tower. – Amazing! – So that is unRAID Server Pro. – This is the coolest thing
I’ve seen in a long time, because I’ve never really ventured down the technical path of tech. Okay, so what are you tweaking? – Okay, this setting right here lets you decide between higher performance with more wear on your drives, or lower performance with
lower power consumption and less wear on your drives. – If I choose the option
where it’s more stress and also higher performance, is that gonna compromise, I mean– – It’s probably fine. So you want the higher performance one? – Yeah. – Okay, this is really important. What do you wanna call it? I’m thinking Tower? – Call it NAS. We got some pop culture
work to work out with– – We have nothing in common, you and I. – Linus, I paid you to be here, I paid you to be here,
just take the money. – No you didn’t, you didn’t pay nothing! We’ve got two parity drives, we’ve got 13 storage drives, we’ve got two cache drives, and we’re ready to click start. You wanna do the honors? Can you find the click on a PC? – I don’t think I’m ready,
let’s just power it down. All right, here we go, the big moment. – All right, give it a minute. It’s gotta spin all this stuff up. – Well, here’s the thing, so did you know solid state drives, they
don’t have anything to spin? (slapping) – He hits me so much. This yellow thing here, parity is invalid, that’s because it actually needs to build that data set. – So it’s just checking,
it doesn’t need any data from me or any media? – No, in fact, you could
even use it right now. Okay, so you can see right here, we have unmountable disks. – [Keaton] All of them, they’re firing up. – Yeah, we gotta format them. It’ll actually take a couple days, because you have so much storage. 156 usable terabytes is
what we ended up with after some formatting. – Yeah, two parities. – Two parity drives. Now we got a bunch of
raw storage sitting here, accessible over the network. Next stage is we gotta create some shares. So basically, what I’m
setting up right now is so that all of your stuff that doesn’t have to be high performance is just going straight to the hard drives and not even bothering your SSDs. And then we could find some file. Let’s go see what Linus
has downloaded lately. Here’s an OPPO Find X first look. – [Keaton] So just straight dragging it from anywhere on the laptop. – [Linus] And now we are playing
that off the NAS right now. For some reason it’s derping. There we go. – And to the NAS’s
credit, it just was built and it’s still building itself. – So that’s it. – What, we’re done? Fun time’s over? – That’s it. – I never knew what all this was. This is my first time,
honestly, building anything. Well, we’re gonna put this back together, but thank you so much, Linus,
Seagate, unRAID, as well as– – [Both] 45 Drives. – So, that’s it for this video. Make sure you check out the video we did on Linus’s channel in the
description, that room tour. They ain’t ready for it! And you can check out
more of Linus’s stuff, link down below, like
social media, his favorite. All right guys, see you later.

    Local writes on Areca controller with multiple drives come close to M.2 and has upgradable DDR slot for cache. Hardware RAID vastly better than unraid, with rotating parity, ensuring you can fail any drive in the set as all drives carry parity information.

    Why use unraid? Proprietary and by the looks of it closed source. Plus I hope the drives set up for parity are only a representation of the space lost to parity and not that all parity data is stored on to it as your raid would be lost if you'd lose all parity drives.

    FreeNAS by the looks of it seems like a much better no compromises solution for data storage plus its free and open source! However it's much more reliant on RAM so those 16? Gigs of ram preinstalled wouldn't go very far.

    Yeah, unRAID is pretty on the outside.. but wait until it literally eats one of your drives and does a parity check, essentially losing everything on it. This happened to me, only with using 4 drives due to a port multiplier failure. Since then, I've regretted sinking any money into unRAID. Now I run OSX in VM and use SnapRaid for my parity. Don't have to worry about anything funky going on under the hood since it's all controlled by me.

    45Drives is going to go out of business with Linus going around YouTube giving away all their stuff to various channels.
