OpenMediaVault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more. Thanks to the modular design of the framework 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.

    I am using OMV for years already and I am still fascinated how easy, stable and flawlessly it works.

    The best choice out there for open NAS software, IMO. I run this on the HP N54L, and it works very well. Before I came across OMV I had a look at FreeNAS and NAS4Free, but the limited hardware support of FreeBSD, live system approach and inability to install the solution on top of an existing FreeBSD install put me off. OMV is built on Debian and installs to a HDD. You have the option of downloading an ISO to install or it can be installed on top of your existing Debian install with a simple apt-get giving you a lot of flexibility and access to everything that Debian has to offer (ie. a MASSIVE repo and support for pretty much every linux app, and a GUI on your NAS box if you want). Hardware support is a big plus point for me over the FreeBSD based solutions. I run Wheezy with OMV on top, backported 3.14 kernel. I use a Tenda UG2 NIC to supplement the on board NIC and use link aggregation (easily done with OMV). The only [small] downside at present is that the OMV ZFS plugin is not quite finished - but you can setup ZFS in Debian with little effort anyway, and the plugin is being worked on. Overall: Great project, great forums/support, try it.

    I have been using OMV for more than 1 1/2 years. It's the easiest network storage and service solution among 3 open source projects I have tried out. It is not only simple to use, but also feature rich and with expansion possibility for the future.

    I tested all NAS systems available. OpenMediaVault is the most successful projects that has been given me tested. I had a specific configuration in mind and the only one who has given me is OMV and support team! I have the perfect NAS. OMV is easy to install, there are all the plugins necessary and the management interface is all that more comprehensive. The system is running Debian, so light and fast. And other than Amahi ($ $ $) is the only one who has a full support and Greyhole interface incredible and easy to use management! Volker thank you and all the members of the forum for the incredible work done so far.
