    Thats part of the problem, ive read so much I now just confusing myself.
    I also dont really see a good comparison between everything.


    Lastly I heard that ZFS wasnt well maintained on OMV.
    And things like snapshots and so on dont work, or dont work in the GUI.


    This is the reason for all my questions.
    Is the general consensus that people use ZFS?


    If so why doesnt it get included and better maintained in OMV?

    Hey guys,
    I'm in the process of building a new NAS using OMV but there are just so many option available. Which is a blessing and a curse :)


    Server has 12x 8TB drives, and 128gb Ram.


    I've been tossing up between MDADM and ZFS.
    I think I'm going to use MDADM as its built in and well supported.
    Are there any performance differences?
    Does MDADM stripe data across drives like ZFS so it'll read and write to all drives?


    Lastly FS, EXT4 or BTRFS?
    I know EXT4 is the old tried and true, but I'm kinda worried about bitrot and other issues.
    I like where BTRFS is going and think this will be a good solution, any advice?
    Lastly does OMV make use of the BTRFS added features?


    Thanks all
