Is this a NAS?

@PINE64 8G running @ManjaroLinuxARM with HDMI output, gigabit ethernet, PCIe SATA controller, 2 SSDs and .

Now, I need a case and more disks!

@usul @PINE64 Yep, the community made a lot of progress these last few weeks!

@JF @PINE64 this would be great for a nas, no doubt ! Are there psus available optimized for sbc (usb 5v, 2A) AND multiple SATA disks powering ?

@coin @PINE64 The Quartz is powered with a 12V PSU. I have the 12V/5A model.
But yeah, it only has the barrell connector, and the board provides only 2 power connectors for HDD/SSD. I have yet to find a solution to add power connectors for more SSD!

@JF @PINE64 if you find a working solution please keep us updated 🙂

@coin @PINE64 Of course!

A simple ATX power supply will be able to provide 12v to the Quartz64 and 3v/5v/12v to the SSD. I'll try as soon as I find a power supply !

@coin @PINE64 Just found this :

That looks to be perfect : 2*power + *SATA for 6 drives!

What do you think?

@JF @PINE64 not bad for SSDs or small HHDs but : "Hauteur maxium du disque: 9.5mm" so no possibility to store hard drives with storage above 2TB.

Maybe it would be better to find a modular small factor PSU with 12V and 5V for 3.5 and 2.5 SATA hard drives that could also power a SBC.
The casing itself would be another problem then.

LOL, you didn't waste anytime! 😜


I'm very excited by the possibility of putting together a distributed compute cluster backed by ZFS on power-efficient Pine64 boards!
