Mainly i will use it as a file and media server, doing some video en/decoding and maybe run some vm's with virtualbox or some dockers.
I've currently a second NAS wich run on a Asus P8Z77WS Mainboard, currently 7 Years old, i think its now time to replace ( Hardware still running but thinking about energy consumption and lifecycle).
So i'm evaluating a newer Build:
- Mainboard: Asus PRIME H370-PLUS ( https://www.asus.com/Motherboa…H370-PLUS/specifications/ )
- CPU Core i3-8100 3.6 GHz
- RAM DDR4-RAM 2666 MHz 1x 16 GB
- Maindisk for OS: SSD 860 EVO M.2 2280 250 GB
- Case and Powersupply ( where used from another Build )
- Main usage: to start off with 3x 6TB as storage for some PC's as a sharing plattform, also as a media server, maybe some video en/decoding and finally to run some docker or VM's
I know, maybe this plattform configuration is a little bit oversized for my use cases, but i'ts more efficent than the 7 year old hardware and if the system lives same longtime as the old, then the money is not the problem. What do you think about it ? Are there any better or affordable builds which offer the same performance ?
Ok, everthing clear, thank you for your fast answer !
Hi, i'm currently have an older QNAP Nas and currently testing other NAS Solution to finally replace my old QNAP. I setup the latest OMV on a PC and tried out different setups and plugins.
To Backup the datadisk on the OMV Installation i tried rsnapshot. Everthing is working fine, but under rsnapshot i can only define which folder should be as source and destination and how many backup's should be retained, but i didn't found any scheduled job in the web gui, because i would set the time when the snapshots where getting started and the possiblity to disable maybe the hourly rsnapshot.
Finally i found the right cronjobs in the file "/etc/cron.d/openmediavault-rsnapshot" where each rsnapshot is defined. Wouldn't it make sense when these Jobs would be visible under "Scheduled Jobs" ?
Or is that by design ?
Anyway best NAS Software ! Thumb up
