If you are looking to build a massive storage system for enjoyment you may be interested in a unique motherboard which is equipped with 32 SATA ports. The Onda B250 D32-D3 and Onda B250 D32-D3 IPFS motherboards both sport up to 32 SATA ports each allowing you to connect a wealth of storage to a single board. But don’t forget to have your redundancy backup systems in place as if the motherboard was to fail access to all drives would go down.
“The B250 D32-D3 has a single PCIe x1 slot and a USB 2.0 header. The rear panel houses two Ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, and one VGA connector. There’s also a tiny button, whose function is probably to reset the motherboard’s BIOS back to factory settings.”
The B250 D32-D3 uniquely measures 405.5 x 310.5mm making even more unique and not complying with any established form factor. It’s unclear what market the unique motherboard is aimed at but Onda lists the B250 D32-D3 and B250 D32-D3 IPFS motherboards priced at 3,299 yuan or roughly $466.80.
