Cheap NAS solution - possible?

Recommended Posts

 

I have zyxel NSA325v2 nas right now, with custom OS (Debian Buster) which is based on single core armv5 cpu. It handles 2 wd red HDDs quite nice, just as RAID 1 volume (mdadm).

But when I installed OMV 5 his "horsepower" was...well, nonexistent Simple file upload via samba takes about 80% of cpu at load ~2.0, downloading at load 1.5 and iperf indicates about 650-700Mbps speed.

 

So I started to wonder - as an user of a few OPIs - if it would be possible to upgrade my NAS in very cheap manner Let's say at $50 max. Does any setup - beside USB-to-SATA card - comes to your mind? Any real SATA sbc at this price is available at all? Or sbc + pci-to-sata card?

 

What's your cheap nas setup?

Did you try NFS? SMB3 traffic might be encrypted. It took my H3/GbE a lot of sweat transferring 2TB onto USB thru SMB3 earlier this week.

No, I haven't.

I favour board replacement to gain more horsepower for OMV (which is slow on 1-core right now).
