Using a stable Debian base line mixed with some custom control code
= lovely stable free NAS platform.

Its not perfect:

1. Weird python errors when doing apt-get updates
2. LVM management - cant create more than one volume group (odd decision)
3. Network config - Interfaces renaming is especially irritating due to debian stretch and many other newer distros to use the new systemd naming convention - meaning old jessie was like eth0,eth1, now use enps30 etc
Of course the clever guy at openmediavault has created a omv-firstaid cli to rename from shell if all goes pear shaped.

What i like the most:

Set and forget approach. Makes creating RAID set etc a breeze, Sharing files is also logical and streamlined - NFS and CIFS.

OMV extras - Tons of third party addons that make it even better!

Great work!
Highly recommended for a free NAS solution!

We have invested approximately more than 200 hours of work in our laboratory to determine which open source solution is the most suitable to implement on XYratex chassis with 12 discs Seagate (IBM XIV) 2Tb, Xeon Hexacore E5645 and 24Gb RAM DDR3 ECC, after testing all the solutions based on FreeBSD (FreeBSD, FreeNAS, NAS4Free) and those based on Linux (Openfiler, RockStore, OMV) fully convinced us that OMV 3.0.94 on Devian and pluggin for handling ZFS and iSCSI was our correct choice. We are looking forward to the development of ZFS pluggin for version OMV 4.1.3, we hope to implement a NAS in test mode with 200 users soon, we believe that OMV is a simple and solid product that although it has some aspects to improve with successive releases will improve even more.

Works great with no glitches. Like every system it has its quirks, in this case it's how it handles ntfs drives. I wanted a removable ntfs drive that I could detach and use elsewhere as a backup media storage. Getting ntfs to work was kinda annoying but doable, so no real deterant; for an odd situation.
