Hi guys,

could you advise me on using OPI PC as NAS with following services:

- Centralized file storage
- Backup from laptops and mobiles
- Automatic torrents downloader
- Automatic sync/backing up on Megacloud if possible

Should I use Debian Jessie OS with plugins and software packages installed or should I use Openmedia vault or Free NAS packages.
Personally I would like to use Debian in desktop environment in order to learn Linux usage, but is it pracical for NAS.

Regards,
Vladimir

I just read a post about OPi and NAS in the forums on Armbian, maybe go there for answers! I am a NOOB so I couldn't give a better answer.

- Centralized file storage

100M ethernet isnt good for file storage. Network speed is slow - about 11 Mbytes a second

- Backup from laptops and mobiles

Background backups only are good. Reason is above

- Automatic torrents downloader

Shure. However there are no built in tools on PC/tablets to start download on Orange PI. You need to start browser on OPI and click on some .torrent to start downloading.
I am using Remote client (VNC) for Windows & iPad.


- Automatic sync/backing up on Megacloud if possible

Megatools are absent on Ubuntu 15.04 repo, but im pretty shure it could be compiled on OPI from source.
Will write later.

UPDATE1: Megafuse doesnt work on my Ububtu 15.04 @ PI. Dont know why. Segmentation just fault (core dumped)
UPDATE2: Megatools works fine for me. Sync and backups requires few scripting using megatools.

new to OPI

i own a Orange Pi

question;  does the  Orange Pi NAS Expansion card (also know as Orange-Pi-Zero-NAS-Expansion-board-Interface-board )
fit to these above mentioned boards too

love to hear from you


ps - what i mean is this: "Orange Pi Zero NAS Expansion Board Interface Board Support All Types Of Orange" -

is it useful to have this expansion board interface to create a NAS with the orange pi pc and the prime!?

Hi,
im using the Orange Pi PC 2 (1 Gigabit Eth) with an USB HDD as an  NAS.
OS: Armbian
transfer-speed is: ~30 MB/s
i think my HDD is limiting the transfer, but it is enough for me.

Hi,
I want to make a NAS out of some cheap hardware, e.g. Orange Pi One H3 512MB + Orange Pi NAS Expansion board.
As I understood, Orange Pi One requiers 5V 2A micro USB power supply and Orange Pi NAS Expansion board needs teh same 5V 2A with some barrel connector. Orange Pi NAS Expansion board can power a laptop HDD. Is it so?
COuld comeone suggest a power supply which could siut both Orange Pi One H3 512MB and Orange Pi NAS Expansion board? What about an additional 3.5" HDD?
