I’m very interested in buying a vero 4k+ box but I’m a little concern about its capacity to read 10 drives at the same time. I have no problem with my raspberry pi 3 reading all of them but I’m not sure about Vero because it got just 2 usb ports, don’t know If I willl have to use a special hub in each one or it will work the three hubs I’m using with my Raspberry.
Back when NAS and NFS were “new” and having a ton of issues, I ended up taking an old computer and building a samba and mediatomb server (PCs, an rpi and a smart TV). Ten years, multiple rpi’s and smart TV’s later, I’m still running a samba and Emby server. I find that samba works quite well for our household needs, other than to offer up media shares. We can back up and restore PCs and phones and use space on the server for “extra storage” (15TB of drives in server). For our purposes, 'It Just Works’®
I’m assuming your 3 USB hubs are all connected directly to the Pi and they are 4-port hubs. The only difference with Vero will be you can’t do that but will have to connect one hub to the Vero, then the other two to that one hub. If that all works, assembled like that on the Pi, then it should work on Vero.
I’m running my 4k with three 4-bay hdd Mediasonic enclosures.
Currently at 10 hard drives and no real issues. The Update/scan takes a bit, but no real issues thus far.
Using a 7 port USB 3 powered hub.
