After using OMV on my old hardware for a few weeks now, I need some new hardware. This one witch annoys me every week (a hdd missing, lockup, problem with nic, ..) and now fails to boot. My wife begs me to stop tinkering and ask me to buy new stuff.
What does it have to do:
- zoneminder (2-3cams) - records the events to the disk
- serving files to my TV (nfs)
- being backup location for files, documents (samba/afp)
- timemachine server
- run logitech media server
- be on for 24/7
What I got in mind:
mobo MSI C847MS-E33
ram Corsair 4 GB DDR3-1333
os hdd SanDisk SSD 64 GB
CPU onboard Intel® Celeron® 847
I have a 2TB and 500gb data disk now running. It is enough, but I'll add 2tb later.
Now my A64 3200+ (single core, with 2.5gb ram) has a load of 30% for zoneminder, so this celeron is ±2x the same speed (dual core). and a lot more economical on the electrical cost
The other programs are not really CPU hungry, just need a stable system.
The SDD is my first one - I used classic hdds untill now, I think it is good to use it for zoneminder (because it writes a lot to the disk, every image captured when activity is seen ,...).
Q1: any tougths?
Q2: HDD or SDD for os?
Q3: Do I need a powerfull PSU for this? (I will not recycle anything of my old hardware )
thank you in advance
