I have had one for four years.

My Setup: OpenSUSE (BTRFS with their Snappy is awesome)

Two drives that are redundant.

CrashPlan for off site backup

I also run my IRC (Weechat) on the box and glowing-bear.org as the front end and this is the BEST thing ever. Run my printer from the server and have a personal R-Studio and Juypter Notebook server running on it. I love it.

What hardware failures have you survived through so far, and how was your setup able to cope?

If you haven't had a failed disk yet, consider yourself lucky! :-)

<----- Lucky (No Failures) I think I paid $50 for the chip and motherboard. Western Digital Green 1 TB drives.
