UnRaid Network Attached Storage (NAS) Mini-Server 2012

Yuzo@Amazon
The list author says: "My HP MediaSmart Windows Home Server finally gave up the ghost. Since it's discontinued, I've decided to go with the current home media NAS solution of choice, an UnRaid Server (http://lime-technology.com/wiki/index.php/UnRAID_Wiki)

Primary use case is media fileserving, but I also need enough juice to run SabNZBd and something like Plex to transcode media on the fly to play on various iPads/Kindles/iPhones/etc.

Hope to pair this up with Jailbroken Apple TV's at each TV for a full end-to-end media media streaming solution."
