    Ubuntu supports ZFS as well. I use this at the moment which works very well.

    Right now I manage docker mule with ansible. Traefik and dashboard is autopopulated with labels ( homepage is great, ansible-nas is sometimes outdated but can be easily fixed ) .

    - 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.
  • Is there a more up-to-date guide than this?
    5 projects | /r/selfhosted | 16 Apr 2022
    Not an up to date article, but if you're interested in an alternative which also has portainer for some management, I've used 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
    2 projects | /r/sysadmin | 20 Feb 2022
    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:
  • My self-hosting infrastructure, fully automated from empty disk to operating services.
