That would be a secondary goal. Most of my critical stuff is already offsite in a basic backup/versioned system via backblaze. My bulk media rips would be too costly to try and store offsite so my aim is to at least create versioned backups onsite. Using minio might make it easier to grow storage over time versus how it is with zfs. Both offer bitrot and data availability with parity. From the keep it simple approach, zfs would win here but I also like learning new things so it might be neat to try minio.That's an interesting project. Would part of your plan include replicating your data offsite? Or are you just looking at it for bitrot / data loss prevention?
Interesting to hear that LumaForge is doing similar to me with two groups of 10-disk raidz2 vdevs. That is an optimal config to spread writes across the drives so good to hear they're doing that.Saw this yesterday on LTT:
