16TB Hard Drive Project



From the maker of the Xbox to Mac transformation project comes another superb build.  This time, he’s shoved over 16TB of hard drive space within roughly the footprint of a standard shoebox.  As usual, he also provided extremely detailed build videos documenting the entire process (watch it below).

The 8 hard drives supply over 16TB of space which is more than adequate for even the most avid data collector. A 120mm single fan keeps the drives functioning at a workable temperature.  Power-wise, the unit performs better than you might imagine, using just 90watts under load, writing at a respectable 88MB/s with 266MB/s read speed.
