# UPDATED May 2015 # Scroll down to see the update of my Review OMV brings to you a network attached storage solution for beginners and avanced users. It has the simplicity, yet is still comprehensive, that is needed for beginners who don't know much about Linux. It is even easier to install than your Windows. OMV takes care of anything itself. You just need to setup your root password. No more interaction is needed from you to install this Distribution. After the installion you can start right away with settup up your shares, configuring plugins and services, creating a raid or filesystem on your new hard disk. All that can be easy done via a simple Webinterface. OMV features a simple Plugin API and comes with a bunch of Plugins developed and maintained by votdev itself. Plugins that are included from the beginning and just need to be installed in the plugin section feature support for clamav (Antivirus), DAAP (itunes media server), netatalk (AppleTalk) and one for USB Backups. There are also some Plugins for Users with needs that go above the usual: LDAP, LVM2, iSCSI Enterprise Target, UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and one to manipulate the the IP Route table. Besides that there are already many Plugins made from the community for the Fedaykin (OMV 0.4) version. Available User made Plugins are: autoshutdown, dnsmasq, git, mysql, processlist and transmissionbt. More Plugins, that are not maintained at the moment, but available and working on Fedaykin are: cups, minidlna, openvpn, subversion, virtualbox and a website plugin. Greyhole will be available again in the next OMV version. The upcoming version Sardaukar (OMV 0.5) will feature a better and redifined Plugin API which will make it even easier for Users to devolop Plugins. Other new Features that are coming to OMV are Static IPv6 Support (0.5) and dynamic Support in 0.6. Version 0.6 also takes the step to move from Debian Squeeze to the new stable Debian version Wheezy. Keep in mind that openmediavault just builds up onto a standard minimal Debian installation. So, anything that can run on Debian, will much likely also run on OMV. ## Update ## Since I wrote this review, many things have changed. OpenMediaVault runs on Debian Wheezy for over a year now with the Version 1.0. The upcoming Version 2.0 will make the jump to the latest Version of the Webframework that's used. A couple of months later we well then see the version 3.0 which will make the jump to Debian Jessie. New Features in 1.0 for example: Widgets in the Dashboard, there are even more coming with 2.0, more Plugins than ever before - combining core and third party plugins OMV now has over 65 (!) Plugins. OpenMediaVault is allways enhancing, and it will continue to do so, with its very active community and third party developers.
Come out baby in the market. Will teach you a real good lesson.
