I have an old Synology Nas that I use for work and for leisure.
It has 4 hard drive bays, and is configured in RAID 5.
For the work side:
-FTPS server (accessed by my customers via the internet)
-Backup server. Backup of my work Windows 8.1 pc, just a trivial copy of files
to the Synology SMB/CIFS share
For the leisure side:
-Storing of my media collection (videos, music, pictures)
-Download station (Transmission-like torrent downloader)
-Streaming server for my old WD TV Live
The Synology backups itself on a machine on the network.
A NasLite box rsync server.
The Synology every odd day (1,3,5.. day of the month) wakes the
NasLite box (via WOL) backups itself and then shuts down the NasLite
box via an "Expect" script I wrote.
What I want to accomplish, and in what I need help:
-Migrate the functions of my old Synology Nas to OMV box (obviously )
-FTPS server (I have experimented in the last weeks with OMV but I haven't
looked into it very well)
-Use SnapRaid instead of the software RAID 5 (tested and I love it!)
-Using aufs for pooling (not tested and a bit confused in how it works) (Edit: Done! See second post)
-Backup the OMV box to the NasLite box via rsync (not tested yet)
-Automate the WOL of the NasLite box, and the shutdown via the "Expect" script
I wrote. (I hope it's feasible in Debian...)
-Transmission plugin (not tested yet)
-Streaming server for my media (tested and it works flawlessly)
-Backup up of my work pc (tested and it works flawlessly -much (a lot...) faster than
the Synology Nas-
-minor feature: I have written a couple of little programs that automate the process
of finding and downloading .torrent files and send them to the Synology Nas
"torrent folder" where the "Download Station" get them, and during the night
downloads the files. It would be nice to move this programs to the OMV box and
with wine (the software not the beverage ) execute them at scheduled intervals.
Now they run on my work Windows 8.1 pc.
Unfortunately i have no idea how wine works...
I plan to migrate in the next six months, hoping that someone can help in some
details of this project.
I was tempted to use XPEnology instead of OMV because I am familiar in how Synology
works, but the support of the OMV forums is really great, and for me this is a
