I an trying to make my own cloud server, for work and personal use. I am not very experienced in this. I have used a Synology NAS for 3 years. Now I want to built my own.
First I have installed FreeNAS, but it’s a bit heavy for me for a daily use. So I was very happy when I discovered Yunohost
It seems to be a great tool for my need, but I would like to check with you if what I plan to do is the best way to do it. Where I have a lot of question is, how do you manage your storage with Yunohost ? From what I understand, that is not something you do with Yunohost, so you need an extra layer of software to do it before Yunohost.
What I need :
Run apps, with Yunohost (Nextcloud, music manager, photo manager)
Large storage capacity with redundancy
Full online backup on Crashplan
What I have :
i3 6100 PC with 16GB or ram
SSD 32GB for system
What I plan to do :
Install Debian 9 on the SSD, with the graphical interface, for now
Mount my internal drives on Debian (some drives are HFSplus, it should works apparently)
Make a raid volume with Debian
Make AFP or SMB share on Debian for my local network
Install Crashplan on Debian to online backup everything
Install Yunohost on Debian
Use my drives and raid volume with my Yunohost apps
My questions :
Does it make sense ?
I have a 32GB SSD, a slow one like 35 MB/s read/write speed, it is OK with Debian ?
Can I manage the graphical interface of Debian from local/external network, like in VNC mode ? (sorry if it is bad formulated)
Can I plug a USB HFSplus drive on my Debian machine, and it will read/write on it ? Apparently yes but it seems to good to be true
I know all that is a bit beyond Yunohost, but any help is welcome !
Thanks a lot !
