Just curious how FOG users utilize additional storage nodes.
Do you guys have a bunch of boxes side by side? VMs?
Also, I really want to image a fog server, what do you recommend? FOG? Acronis?
I use a pretty beefed up Fog server that has 6 disks in RAID 5 and dual gigabit nics bonded. I can unicast about 20 machines at a time. I am planning on adding a few spare desktops to my Fog setup as additional storage nodes to see how many more I can unicast at a time, but disk throughput in the bottleneck on the single-disk servers. More than 2 or 3 clients and they all slow down really bad.
To image a fog server, you’ll probably need something that supports ext4. Look into clonezilla, ghost, or acronis. I think you can always DD to a spare hard disk also
