The Velitium project provides a build environment to create an embedded distribution of OpenSolaris boot images. Velitium for NAS - Velitium can create OpenSolaris based firmware images for SOHO NAS appliances.
- USB Flash boot image
- ZFS with deduplication, single, dual and triple parity raid
- cifs, nfs, AD integration
- Prebuilt templates for Thecus n5200-Pro, Dell SC430/ SC440, Nvidia ION Atom330 chipsets (n79)
Simple to use.
I use this project on my NAS every day, easy to setup and easy to customise.
With FreeNAS losing ZFS support, there should be more visibility for this project as an potential alternative. It would be great to get more information on using this as a NAS solution.
