Banana Pi/Pro to buy, not only the developers soft for the ARM, but also lovers to do with my hands and head. Most often I've seen articles from such people. And how after implementing a couple of projects with banana Pi/Pro did them or from a NASserver or/and DLNAserver or/and Shareserver or/and web server. As a rule it is the presence of SATA and determines the further fate of the Banana Pi/Pro in property buyers.
I have personally organized a home server with DLNA on AMD A-5300 HDD and 8 distributing content to home users but no more than 3 consumers at the same time. The processor has excess capacity and is all that much space despite the fact that the motherboard format MicroATX, also with the cooling of chipsets from AMD in the standard solutions from the manufacturers of motherboards have a problem which often result in a fatal error.
So I personally would like to have the opportunity to buy inexpensive ARM server with a large number of SATA.Any ideas for the site of distribution of content which requires quite a lot of space - photos and videos from sporting events (one sata and not enough multiplier not supported) and not large processor requirements, the impact no more than 100 mbit/s.
Personally, I bought a Banana pro only for torent-box.
Very often seen article with the review of the Banana Pi/Pro where after various tests with different operating systems, the fate of the equipment was home-IP PBX, NAS, Share, web server.
