I have a HP MIcroserver (Gen8) running OMV 4.x on an SSD that is connected to the internal ODD port.
For drives I have 4 X 3TB WD red drives. These are currently just in a JBOD setup although I have plans to install bigger drives and arrange them in a RAID 5 array.
I use this mainly as a plex server with Sonarr, Radarr & Lidarr to manage all my media. These are all running in Docker.
The CPU is only a Celeron but it does the job. I could upgrade to a Xeon but i think if i'm going to do that, i may as well upgrade the whole thing. For the time being its fine.
Anyone else using a GEN8? Can anyone recommend a good Mobo+CPU combo that supports ECC ram and is fairly cheap?
