I currently have a media server with WHS 2011 + areca 1880 raid card with 36TB of storage.


My server functions solely has a media storage/gathering hub running:

-Sabnzb

-CouchPotato

-Sickbeard

-MakeMKV


Streaming to 3 OpenElec devices


Obviously I don't need much for this server in terms of hardware, but Im looking for as little OS maintenance/rebooting as possible + easy remote access/RDP. I have also never used linux beyond some desktop usage at school, but Windows 7 is 4 years old, WHS is dying/dead and I am not a fan of Windows 8.


New server will be changing to Areca 1882, but same basic CPU/Mobo still.


Thanks.

I would say linux without a GUI but you still want to run makemkv on it then you are stuck with running a GUI. I run ubuntu server with my areca raid card setup. You dont reboot linux for updates only if you update the kernel which for a home user not really needed. my current uptime for my storage server at home is 234 days
