6.0 was released a few hours ago this afternoon:https://forum.openmediavault.org/index.php?thread/39490-install-omv6-on-debian-11-bullseye/
10.10 was also released today (#Buster).
You can install OMV via the script above on a fresh install of Bullseye or d/l the OMV 6.0 iso and install from a bootable USB stick or DVD.
I've never been a fan of file based mass storage, so I've never really had much interest in #NAS
, but it does well for cheap, small home based networks where folks like to keep collections of movies or other data mounted via NFS or #CIFS
(#SAMBA) shares, and you can buy little network attached NAS boxes for cheap from your favorite consumer vendors.#NFS
itself is nice, and I make regular use of it, but why bother with an appliance when you can just enable that on a host directly and say, keep your #rsync
replicated data or #Duplicity
backups and #snapshots
Instead, coming from the big machine room environments with raised flooring and surrounded by a wall of glass, I look to the #SAN
Because this is block based instead of file based, you can run a SAN on very little RAM w/o impact, and #OMV
fits this bill quite nicely!
I've saved many enterprises over the years hundreds of thousands of dollars simply by rejecting exorbitantly priced Dell's EMC and of course the ever ubiquitous #NetApp
appliances (among many others) in favor of deploying OMV in the datacenter with the native #iSCSI
If you do this, please do not neglect to contribute to Volker - he does this for free and was one of the original dev's for the FreeNAS project. Im glad he decided to bring that expertise to Debian GNU/Linux as the base distro of choice for OpenMediaVault.
Prior to my having adopted OMV when it first launched, I used #OpenFiler
.com which is a fantastic product - except for one thing, it's subscription based and nowadays the only non CE (Their terminology for "Commercial Edition", rather than what everyone else dubs, 'community edition') version is a little old and unsupported. It's very much a commercial and non community supported project and so I was very glad when they were making the transition and #Volker
announced the very first release of OMV.
Yes, this version is a so-called preview, the 5.x branch had an update a couple of weeks ago.
I can't recommend OpenMediaVault enough, and it's also quite capable of managing things like #Portainer
along with all of the daemon's and services you would want to be forward facing services.#tallship #Vger #FOSS #OpenSource #Open_Source @OpenSource @opensource
