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
- Hard drives
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 !
