Downsizing server


Recommended Posts


I'm downsizing from a dual Xeon server with 48TB of DAS.  It's too loud, uses too much power, and is somewhat overkill for my application.  My goal is to find something quiet that I can place near my TV.  I tried a Raspberry Pi, but it struggles with 4k content.  I was thinking about picking up an i7 Mac mini, but I don't want to burn $1500 on something that may not work.

Can anyone recommend an out-of-box system that can handle transcoding a single 4k HDR stream?  My budget for this project is ~$1500, and I'll be running everything in containers.  I prefer MacOS or Ubuntu, but could run Windows if that's the only option.
