I'm in the middle of deciding what direction I want to go for my new NAS.
A major consideration is that I'm thinking of using SnapRAID on this build.
Option 1: HP Chromebox w/ Intel Celeron 2955U 1.40 GHz, 4GB RAM, USB3, 1Gb NIC, custom firmware to install OMV.
Option 2: Banana Pi Pro w/1GB RAM, SATA Port Multiplier, 1Gb NIC.
The common gear: ICY DOCK Black Vortex MB174U3S-4SB 4 Bay USB 3.0 & eSATA External and 3x 3TB WD Red drives.
I hear SnapRAID works better with SATA drives, but the Banana Pi Pro only has 1GB of RAM which is an issue for the amount of storage I'm going with.
Any guidance on this?
