The evil in me wants to say: a lot of time wasted playing with Linus for something that has a very small use case currently, delaying us playing with 6.2.
The reasonable me says: Linus is apparently really helping spread the word and greatness of UnRAID, expanding your user base, and worth the wait.
The older outdated me has been saying for a while: Who the hell is Linus? He seems to have quite the following! Also if he is anything like the pewdiepie craze I hear of from YouTube, I seriosuly don't get it (I tried to watch his most popular video, and didn't get it)..
I feel old, and I'm "only" 33!.. LOL

Now, when do we get to play with 6.2?
You've been spamming and teasing its release too much lately.  ;)

Not until I won the over/under release date pool. ;)

Heres how you can play along at home.
It always corresponds with a Holiday.
It is always over.

The fun is when there's multiple Holidays close together.  For instance these are all in play for a public 6.2 Release.

Christmas
New Years
Martin Luther King
Ground Hog Day
Chinese New Year
Ash Wednesday
Presidents Day
Daylight Saving Time
Ides of March
St Patrick's Day
Palm Sunday
Good Friday
Easter
Tax Day
Memorial Day
Cinco de Mayo
July Fourth
Labor Day
Columbus Day

FreeBSD/FreeNAS does not have the same disk/network configuration capability?  Seems unRAID & FreeNAS were on par out of the box (pre-SSD) and was only after tuning the base OS in unRAID did it allow the 1/10 Gbps result.  I never used FreeNAS so not sure how much base OS is visible to the user.

FreeNAS uses ZFS so they do not offer a unRAID style array or btrfs cache pool.  FreeNAS also didn't offer any easy method to tune 10gbps networking.  The point of the video that we cared about was showing unRAID's viability as a high-performance storage platform as well as a high-capacity one.

Curious to know ... will 6.2 be able to support more than 24 drives?

The system in the video has 27 HDDs plus another 8 SSDs, however for those who paid attention the cache pool for the test is made out of 24 HDD drives !

Curious about that also, on the video he has 24 cache + 1 array disks, so it’s under the 25 device limit like 6.1., I expect in 6.2 we should be able to use at least 26 devices or users using 24 array disks + cache won’t be able to add the 2nd parity disk.

After some more thought it has to accept at least 27 devices, as Linus is using 27 slots total, 3 array + 24 cache.

I think the total he used is 26 devices, 24 devices in the pool, 1 array device (no parity was configured) and 1 flash device, which is the current limit.

That was my thinking at first, but although he is not using parity it still counts as assigned slots, on v6.1 minimum array slots you can choose are 2, even if you don't want to assign parity, and with 2 array slots maximum cache slots are 23, so the limit was increase to at least 27 disks devices (or 26 if 2nd parity does not count if not assigned).

Hi guys,
I'm kinda new to the whole UNRAID thing, but I thought UNRAID puts the files in water-fall in the sense that it technically writes files to two drives (one pairing drive), so if the SAS drive was capable of  200MB/s write, wouldn't it stop there? Sorry I'm all new to the server world, and I'm trying to learn all these.

No. It does not write files to 2 drives. It writes data to 1 drive and then it writes parity information to a dedicated parity drive. The parity information covers all data drives.
