Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirates life for me!! Recent streaming services, prices and shows getting butchered, finally decided its time. Here's how a basic self-hosted 'Netflix' would look like. Fully automated once its setup. Using only a makeshift homelab server from second hand parts.

So I'm working on a similar setup with an ancient desktop my in-laws were getting rid of. I installed OpenMediaVault directly to the hard drive (it's so old that I assume it wouldn't work too well as a hypervisor), with a 4TB external HDD attached. OMV supports Docker by means of a plug-in and I'm running a Jellyfin container with no issues at all. I'm still manually downloading everything to the HDD but *arr containers are my next step, as well as setting up a gluetun container to route all that through a VPN.
Best NAS OS for easy expandability

New home lab

The second is storage. If you need any of the storage sharing, deploy NAS OS as the VM in proxmox, like Starwinds SAN and NAS (https://www.starwindsoftware.com/san-and-nas) or OMV (https://www.openmediavault.org/), or TrueNAS (https://www.truenas.com/). As you mentioned, you need to cross-flash the perc into IT mode and pass through the controller into VM, but you need a separate from the controller drive for proxmox to be able to PCI-E passthrough the card into VM. Then, configure software RAID and reshare the storage to the proxmox via NFS/iSCSI (that will improve your skills in storage stack and storage protocols).
What OS should I run?

If you want all that in one, I would go with Proxmox and everything else as VMs or containers on it. NAS can also be run as a VM. For example, Starwinds NAS: https://www.starwindsoftware.com/san-and-nas or openmediavault: https://www.openmediavault.org/. I would try to add more RAM for sure though.

I have Open Media Vault installed on a Raspberry PI. I choose that because also wanted to run some docker images and wanted something cheap. However, if you’re not tech savvy I recommend Synology.

What's the best software to use on a home built nas?
3 projects | /r/servers | 7 May 2023
To build a NAS, you can set up a Linux VM with LVM, ZFS, Btrfs or deploy a pre-built solution like Openmediavault https://www.openmediavault.org/, EasyNAS https://easynas.org/, Starwinds SAN&NAS https://www.starwindsoftware.com/san-and-nas-free to passthrough the direct-attached storage to NAS VM, create a pool, and expose it to your network as SMB or NFS file shares, or iSCSI storage.
creating a server I can teach myself stuff on from old desktop
3 projects | /r/HomeServer | 3 Apr 2023
1) VMs are out of the question. Your CPU is too old to run VMs. 2) This could be a very powerful firewall, router, and privacy cleanser. Check out OPNsense or pfSense 3) Could definitely run as a NAS! Not a powerful one. An easy one to get started with is Open Media Vault.
Beginner HomeServer Questions

Unless you've got another project in mind for your Pi4 (and who doesn't?), I enjoyed (mostly) my time running an OpenMediaVault machine (I was running Plex and a couple of minecraft servers on it). Here's a guide for installing pihole on an OMV machine, and this guy has a TON of useful tutorial videos around all kinds of neat stuff you can do with OMV (as well as initial setup/config vids).
Can't decide on an OS

I would just go with Proxmox and run Plex, game server and NAS as VMs. For a NAS, take a look at StarWinds SAN and NAS or TrueNAS Core if you want ZFS. 16GB of RAM might be a bit scarce for everything but still worth a shot. There's also openmediavault that requires minimum RAM.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning FreeNAS yet.
