depot: new backup/media server

I’ve slowly but surely been working on a new server in my rack. The intent of this server is to consolidate copies of some of my backups, and provide a place to store media files (music, movies, etc.). This new machine is known as depot.

The intent is to run FreeBSD 9.1 and ZFS. I will likely start with a single pool of 6 drives in raidz2, and later add a second pool.

As part of this process, I’ve migrated to a Startech RK2536BKF rack.
