OMV on Banana Pi - BanaNAS

  • Ok :)

    I know that the world does not expect the us to many. It is sufficient that you answer yourself a very important question: what I like to do in life, and then start to do it.

  • I simply use it to connect an external DIY box via the N54L esata port (it can address 5 external hard drives).
    The port multiplier costs 25$, a Pci sata controller with 5 sata ports costs way much more.
    The way I use it, make off-site backups, the port multiplier is perfect even if the performance are not so good.


    In my opinion the BananaPi with a sata port supporting the port multiplier, would be a perfect OMV low energy nas.

  • Hi all


    This is very strange : 1 bought 3 of these banana pi. The raspberry seems too weak for me. So the banana pi is my first microcomputer boards.


    My goal is to setup OMV on some of these.


    This project is very nice, but I'm thinking a step further : I want a distributed filesystem. I'm about to try glusterFS.


    But, OMV does not yet support it. I hope I will find a OMV friendly way to build this setup :)

    My wiki : http://howto-it.dethegeek.eu.org


    = latest setup =
    proxmox VE 6 hypervisor on a J1900 CPU + 8GB RAM
    guests : OpenWRT (VM), OMV 5 (VM), Samba 4 domain controller (LXC)
    OMV alive since 2011 I guess : never crashed, always upgraded : stronger than my hard drives.


    Searching for a P2P online storage solution : must be open source, client side encrypted, quota supprt. Tahoe LAFS is the nearest, but is lacking quota. Would be perfect to build a OMV based, anonymous online storage for backups

    Edited once, last by dethegeek ().

  • I am working on a glusterfs plugin. Give me another week or two :)

  • I'm expecting this will be my favourite plugin :D

  • I also added (not released) the ability to mount glusterfs as a shared folder on the RemoteShare plugin.

  • New Banana Pi coming, called Banana Pro (from a different Developer, though!):



    It adds wifi to it and uses a micro usb port now too. The only thing that I would love to know, does it now support the Sata Expand card?


    It also seems that you can't yet order it.

  • Doesn't Lemaker make both?


    I still recommend the cubox-i over banana pi/pro. It supports openelec and port multiplier too.

  • It's a pity that the BananaPi is not compatible to something like this.


    I just found out, it seems the Banana IS compatible with it!

    Lemaker was a reseller (but not anymore) for the Banana Pi. The Banana Pi and the rest of the Banana Pi variants were actually created by SinoVoip. The Banana Pro was indeed created by Lemaker and caused some naming confusion with the Banana Pi.

    And costs about double to three times as much :(


    Edit: Pardon, found some shady ebay auctions. It's 80 $ for the naked cubox-i.
