    - NAS software and solutions: -- FreeNas or TrueNas, I heard they are good file storage solutions, but I cross them out because I read there is limited Docker or VMs support; -- Unraid, I cross it out since needs paid license I am not sure if I need all the features. Maybe I am cheapscate, but I would like to see if I can get what I need using free software first. I probably would invest if I build a proper NAS from scratch, and not reporpusing old hardware; -- OpenMediaVault. Something I am considering, but I heard it is a decent open source NAS based on Linux, has it limitations, doesn't really like USB storage and so on. -- Synology hardware. Friend has it because he knows he has no time to mess around. Don't want to go this rout since I have the hardware already. -- Roling out your own solution or using ubuntu or ansible-nas. Sounds like a great learning experience. BUT for some reason, people who create their own solution end up switching to some different framework like this guy.

    Not an up to date article, but if you're interested in an alternative which also has portainer for some management, I've used https://github.com/davestephens/ansible-nas in the past with great results. It's managed with ansible, but all docker containers.
  • someone please tell me linux equivalent to Microsoft Storage spaces

    Thanks for all the responses, I read and watched a lot about ZFS again tonight after posting this and my only thing I'm not sure on is if I can have the SSDs as a write cache or like how storage spaces does tiering. so, I'm going to start with Truenas core. I also found this other project which looks really good and that I might consider later on down the track: https://github.com/davestephens/ansible-nas

  • Need advice on choosing OS/base for NAS/home server
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2 Apr 2021
    First I will point you toward this project: https://github.com/davestephens/ansible-nas Which uses ansible to define and manage your docker containers. There's initially no GUI (this is actually a good thing!) but you could probably install Ubuntu with a GUI if you need it before setting up your drives or whatever. After you have configured everything to your liking you can end up with a webui for docker (portainer) and a dashboard linking to the webui for all of your services (radarr, traefik, etc.)
