I’m seeking opinions on a local network-available backup storage medium. All my machines would back up to this volume. I have a spare local machine running headless and I’m tempted to just plug in some external drives on a RAID 1 configuration, but should I get a NAS? Dunno.


@ashfurrow I'd definitely get a suitable machine and set up openmediavault. Even something like a RPi4 or ODroid would work well.

@ashfurrow I'm running OMV on an ODroid XU4 with an external USB3 SDD. I want to upgrade to a USB3 RAID enclosure sometime, though.
