Sounds interesting. That might be something I could try.
Hi, as said by everyone, the Nas remains the best solution ever.
I love Synology too (3 Nas (920+ , 416slim, 218j) plus 5 DiY Nas (3 Xpenology and 2 OpenMediaVault))
If you don't want to spend too much and try something that's working, try OMV on a Raspberry Pi4.
It's cheap (about 80€ with power supply, USB pendrive, cooling) and it's rock stable. I tried it with big 4k HDR files on a hard drive and a U22 with CoreElec, no issue at all :)
I can guide you in this way if you want...

Rpi4 with OMV is a less than 10W solution ;)

I'm sure it works, but would it be much different than what I'm already doing now? I have 15 HDDs that store media files. Two 8-bay NASes is not cheap. If money was no object, I would have probably tried a NAS by now, and bought larger HDDs to consolidate a few of the smaller ones. Just trying to make do with what I have.

Having no experience with a NAS, I have no idea how it works. What would things look like in KODI trying to add all my media files? What's the best way to add the NAS to my network?

I like to keep things simple. It might not always be the best way to do something, but it is what I know and am comfortable with. But, I am always willing to try/learn something new.

Thanks for the ideas.
15 HDDs ?! :).

Personal Opinion:
If you buy a NAS (at least one) for file server, etc. you will hardly ever go back unless you really need a server with windows operating system.
And even with a NAS you can use virtualization and run windows... (of course it is not the same thing)

NAS choise:
Desktop NAS or Rackmount NAS (you need (or it gets much better) a rack cabinet)

I have a bunch of 4TB, 5TB, and 6TB drives. All of them are HGST. I would buy one whenever they went on sale (which turned out to be often). I had two desktop computers at the time (still have them), both of which have 8 SATA ports. Before you know it I had a lot of HDDs. I'm still also running 4 Toshiba 3TB drives in external USB 3.0 enclosures that I bought in early 2013. Best HDDs that I have ever owned (except for my Seagate 10k RPM SCSI HDD from years ago).
