Turning 4 LVM'ed drives into an external hard drive with an SBC?
I have a home test server set up running Debian with four hard drives LVM'ed up together to make a nice 1 TB. It would seem quite useful if I could take these drives out for practical purposes such as acting like an external drive (I have no other real disk space on anything else and would like to take it to a particular computer convention to download a ridiculous amount of stuff). I was thinking about using a single board computer to link them together because it can run linux, it's small, low watt usage, and flexible. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good manufacturers of SBC's or any other suggestions for a small, compact, and low power consumption way of doing thing? What distro would be recommended that is EXTREMELY lightweight and ready to run on pretty much any architecture? What distro is usually used on small devices? Thanks!
