What can OMV do?

OpenMediaVault is a Debian based special purpose Linux Distribution to build a Network Attached Storage (NAS) System. It provides an easy to use web-based interface, Multilanguage support, Volume Management, Monitoring and a plugin system to extend it with LDAP, Bittorrent, and iSCSI capabilities.

How good is FreeNAS?

FreeNAS is awesome for any kind of storage, including VMs or database because it is really reliable and fast. If you can have a robust backup strategy, and maybe a second box for replication, it would be a no-brainer.

What does OMV run on?

OpenMediaVault (OMV) is a free Linux distribution designed for network-attached storage (NAS). The project’s lead developer is Volker Theile, who instituted it in 2009. OMV is based on the Debian operating system, and is licensed through the GNU General Public License v3.

Does FreeNAS use ECC memory?

FreeNAS uses ZFS, which is pretty memory intensive. Some folks argue that the FreeNAS system requirements are very conservative, and you can run ZFS with a lot less RAM, but its still pretty memory intensive regardless. More importantly, FreeNAS lists ECC memory as “highly recommended”, which I don’t think your board supports?

Is it possible to use a BSD NIC with FreeNAS?

The same is true for the Realtek NIC, which isn’t well supported in BSD. If you use this build for FreeNAS and have questions, I don’t think the folks on the Forums there will be too helpful. OMV users are much more helpful in that regard, and OMV’s Debian base will probably work better with your hardware (just my opinion)

Is OMV a good choice for my hardware?

OMV users are much more helpful in that regard, and OMV’s Debian base will probably work better with your hardware (just my opinion) Also, I want to protect my data with a RAID1 (software based I guess), but I only have one of the two hard drives for the moment.
