I'm currently looking into building NAS/Plex Server on basis of a OMV.
Since I will only be accessing the device a couple of times a week, low power consumption and noise are my main concern. When I don't actively use the NAS oder Plex Media Server, the device should be silent and not spinning up the mechanical HDD.
Is there a way to have the basic OS and database for OMV and Plex Media Server on a SD-card so that the HDD will only spin up, when I'm actually accessing files? So I can basically browse the database on the HC1 for files and media and the HDD will only come to life once I actually access anything on the drive?
Is that possible? Are there any long-life SD-cards on the market that do not fail every year?
