Icon17 Homemade 16TB NAS dwarfs the competition with insane build quality

Meet the Black Dwarf, a custom network-attached-storage device from the mind of video editor Will Urbina, packing 16TB of RAID 5 magnetic media and a 1.66GHz Atom N270 CPU into a completely hand-built Lexan, aluminum and steel enclosure. Urbina says the Dwarf writes at 88MB per second and reads at a fantastic 266MB per second, making the shuttlecraft-shaped 12.7TB array nearly as speedy as an SSD but with massive capacity and some redundancy to boot.

With over 200 hours of footage totaling over 1.5tb of data, the Black Dwarf made for my biggest worklog video yet. Original music produced just for this project by Phil Lehman-Brown.
It probably won't take long for him to fill his NAS

There's enough room left for about 7 similar movie project , so I guess he's safe for a while.
Anyway, it'd take me 100x longer to fill 12TB with data
