At this moment I have a NAS, it is an old PC with E8400 CPU, 8GB RAM and a two HDDs, a 80GB system and a 750GB data. OpenMediaVault works on it, I use Plex, Transmission, File share and FTP. I would like to exchange it, because the monit always alert me about the loadavg is too high. I though the BPI-M3 is more than enough for me, but I not for sure. So I need some help from somebody who has any experience about this. I would like to build a NAS with BPI-M3 the operation system will running from the sd card and I wanna use the 750 GB HDD as well. I Cannot decide if I need the BPI-M3 or the M2U is maybe perfect for me. I don’t wanna buy if I cannot use it or too much for me. If somebody built a nas like this, please share own experience with me.
Thanks in advance
