If you are one that enjoys the challenge or wants something built more to your own specifications, then the ability to build your own NAS is a great choice. With today's technology, options to do so have never been so prevalent. With Mini-ITX, you can actually do a very powerful build with all the bells and whistles if you so choose.

 

Apart from the real hardware of your NAS build, you will also have to choose a chassis that fits your needs, and depending on the size of your chassis, you may need an SFX power supply as well.

 

Today, we have the fortunate opportunity to take a look at one of the latest SFF NAS chassis from SilverStone, the DS380. This chassis features SECC steel construction with a lockable front door made from aluminum. Behind the door, you will reveal eight drive bays capable of holding 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives in addition to the internal capability to mount four 2.5-inch drives. Furthermore, the eight hot swappable trays located on the front of the unit have the ability to utilize SATA or SAS drives due to the custom backplane, allowing for more flexibility in your NAS build.
