OpenMediaVault

Last Update: 2017-08-26 01:22 UTC


OpenMediaVault is a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) solution based on Debian GNU/Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, rsync, BitTorrent and many more. Thanks to a modular design it can be enhanced via plugins. OpenMediaVault is primarily designed to be used in home environments or small home offices, but is not limited to those scenarios. It is a simple and easy-to-use out-of-the-box solution that will allow everyone to install and administrate a Network-Attached Storage without deeper knowledge.

  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

OpenMediaVault is an amazing bit of software. It's great if you want to install on older hardware and just need a simple easy to configure NAS solution. It's fast and more importantly very stable. The plugin feature does a great job of expanding OMV's functionality.I hope more plugins for OMV will be available in the future.

Extremely fast NAS focused distribution with light hardware requirements. Plays well on bare metal or as guest VM. I have it virtualized without any issues.

One of the main NAS distributions that runs GNU/Linux. It is very stable, which makes sense since it's based on Debian. I don't want to invest a lot into hardware and I prefer to use GNU/Linux so OMV is great for that.

Has a nice WebGUI and a lot easier than trying to roll your own NAS. WebGUI still isn't as polished as FreeNAS but it's complete for most tasks. I have yet had to log in via SSH to fix anything and was able to do everything I need from the WebGUI.

The OMV plugin system has fewer items than FreeNAS but there is a third party OMV-EXTRAS repository that fills in some of the gaps and it's growing all the time. The UnionFS and SnapRAID plugins are great for those that want some parity protection with a mix set of disks and don't want to setup a true RAID, similar to unRAID or FlexRAID.

Also, the community forum support is good and very friendly.

Pro's:
Excellent NAS platform for home and small to medium sized businesses. Advanced features are made, "easy to use". Almost everything is done in the Web GUI. Along with standard file server and NAS functions, it has several value added plugin's for media servers, client backup, cloud storage, etc. If existing plugins do not provide the functionality needed, OMV supports "dockers" where a variety of additional applications can be run in semi-isolation.

Con's:
A new WEB CSS theme wastes screen space in the latest build. One can live with it, but it can be annoying. Fortunately, the developer set up an alternative theme that's much more efficient. Unfortunate is that this alternate theme requires manually editing a configuration file.
