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.

Started using openmediavault as a NAS server quite a while back. It is pretty easy to use for me and is still a constant learning curve when bugs an issues arise. This is helped by a really good support forum with a wealth of knowledge and answers. Overall if you want a straightforward NAS server to file store, run media from, run virtual machines this is pretty good for it.
Awesome Project/Software !!!!!! Check out my tutorial about it at: myhowtosandprojects.blogspot.pt/2016/12/raspberry-pi-nas-openmediavault.html
Has an huge amout of Software packages and is User Friendly. Use Ubuntu server before this and have a Qnap, but OMV is defenitly the best one out there.
I really enjoy using this OS for my NAS, it can be very simple or also very complex depending on your needs. The community is exceptional as well. I plan to be a user for a very long time.
OMV is an excellent distribution that can turn an old computer into a super NAS system. Quick and easy install on HDD/SD/USB. Very easy to administrate. Many plugins, active community, friendly support. Just excellent !
