A few years ago many users, like my self, bought Windows home server but as you might know windows home server is dead.
So few years ago I tested a few NAS solutions like FreeNAS, Ubuntu Server + Webmin, etc.. but in the end I choose Open Media Vault.
- I needed a very simple web interface to configure the server and FreeNAS and Open Media Vault has it.
- it has to be light not a resource hog.
- Support for samba, users, ftp, ssh, backups and other things I might need.
- Support for extensions/plugins.
I will post here a few links that worth check out so you can learn more about Open Media Vault.
