Default Server product for miSeq-scale data storage?

We currently use an in-house server to host demultiplexed fastq.gz files from our miSeq (~8 runs / month). However, the system is held together by tape practically and I spend a lot of time fixing it.

Does anyone know of a server system that is NOT basespace, but could store sample information and serve sample-demultiplexed files? Something similar to Geospiza's Finch (which we used to use in the Sanger days).

Would be thrilled to hear if people use any products other than Basespace / home-brew

Are you only looking to "serve" (via what protocol, nfs/cifs/http) files from a central location?

You probably don't need a commercial appliance since it sounds like you know what you are doing. Just buy some new hardware and put a new file server together.

I would suggest building your own tower PC with a couple Xeons for running bcl2fastq. Right now I'm using that type of system for demultiplexing NextSeq 500 data. It's running Fedora 21 and processes data on a networked cifs share.

For just 8 runs a month MiSeq Reporter should be more than capable of handling your data processing needs. Just hook it up to a network attached storage device with a few TB of storage and you should be all set.

We have a Synology nas DS3612 in the informatics lab that we backup the runs to over NFS. It has a ton of features that could be overkill for your needs, but they had the best reviews for a nas enclosure. It has a really easy to use file sharing setup that allows us to share the completed run and or analysis similar to dropbox sharing too.

Another option is a tower with a FreeNAS image on it.
