Hi any suggestions on what I could buy as a small home server? I would like to self host Jellyfin, my website and maybe NextCloud (I wanted to try) I saw an Intel NUC on Amazon but I’m not sure

Maybe the raspberry 4 is the best thing right now if it can handle Jellyfin and NextCloud. It’s cheap and small and as a first home server would be a nice thing to play with

@SonoMichele Raspberry Pi fan here, but it very much depends on your intended workload now and later. I've seen plenty of folk using Nextcloud on their Pi 4's.

@proactiveservices I would be the only one using it and not really so often. The thing that I’m concerned about is Jellyfin, I don’t really know much but a guy said that streaming media won’t be very good

@SonoMichele I haven't read of Jellyfin on Pi specifically, but I know that using them for streaming boxes is also a fairly popular use-case. raspberrypi.org/forums/ will likely have some useful posts.
