Here is what I want to achieve:
- have a pooled file system of all drives which:
- has some redundancy
- can seamlessly be imported to another system if I change the OS or the machine
- allow for mobile uploads (using OpenVPN is fine)
- have a gallery with AI facial recognition which uses the ready folder structure (this seems to be very difficult to find)
I currently have a HP Microserver N36L which can have 5 SATA drives. Given my current experience I would go with OMV, Nextcloud and Photoprism/Pi2gallery. I have very limited knowledge on the dos and don'ts of redundancy and file systems though, so I would like advice on how to setup the drives in the most practical manner which gives me redundancy and portability as above.
What setup would you advise? Thanks
