I'm currently in a transition period with my DIY NAS - Due to lack of budget at the moment, I would like to use what I have available in the most sane and common sense way possible.
I originally was a FreeNas/TrueNas user. Lost a drive in my array. Don't have the $ right now to save my pool. Backed up all my data and currently running a trial of unraid. currently on trail waiting on the parity to rebuild (now on to OMV)
I have OMV running in a VM (Proxmox host) and it currently is housing my backup data, but non raid as this is only temporary.
I have four 4TB drives and four 3TB drives in my system that are still good. These were originally a raidz2 striped vdev. however I am curious about the raid6 options available with OMV.
Would it be best to run two separate raid5 setups, one large raid 6 pool and upgrade my remaining disks, or something entirely different?
What are your thoughts. Please tell me I should abandon unraid and seek this alternative. I have 14 days to decide.
