My IT department has a bunch of older 160/320GB Drives. I'd like to use them in a build-your-own NAS device. What limitations exist in regards to the maximum number of drives that can be connected to typical commodity hardware that might be used in a situation like this?
EDIT okay I like to specify my question is
- what to search for to find a storage controller which can handle many drives. I simply cannot find the right search terms.
