I am searching for some information about NAS solution since one month, and I am wondering if it is a better option to build my own NAS with OpenMediaVault, or to buy an expensive QNAP or Synology NAS.
I would like to know if it is possible to have the same performance with a home made NAS than a commercial NAS (power consumption and flow-rate...) at a price below 100$, and with the possibility to expand in the future up to 4 disks. I have already HDD, so I only need the computer board and the case.
The better solution for low power NAS seems to be Helios4, but it is a little bit expensive, and not available right now.
Is the stability is the same with OpenMediaVault and commercial solutions ?
Thanks for your help.
