I ordered a little intel NUC8i5 with 16GB RAM to use as a little NAS server. The storage will be attached by a powered USB3 hub. And i'm looking for a NAS OS to use. I'm thinking about OMV and Unraid
I want to use my NAS to store my media and other data and run a few docker containers. Emby, Sonarr, Radarr, Jacket, Hass.io and PiHole/Adguard for now, maybe some more to play with later.
I would have 2x WD 4TB HD's and 1x WD 2TB drive for the data and a 500GB WD NVME drive for the OS. I'll have some more WD USB3 HDs with my my current movies/tv shows/... on it which will turn into backups of those files.
I've already inquired on the Unraid forums and they said for my setup it's not really a good idea to use Unraid. Even without the use of parity. So I'm wondering what the OMV community thinks about my setup for use with OMV.
I have no UPS so i would like to avoid using raid if this is possible in OMV.
Can i just use individual drives and assign shares to them or do i always have to setup a raid configuration?
Can I set up some sort of backup to copy certain folders from the shares to NTFS formatted backup drives? These would also be USB3 drives hooked up to that same USB hub.
Thanks in advance for any input!
