BAlGaInTl Posted April 5, 2019 Share Posted April 5, 2019 Okay, so I've been thinking of redoing my server for a while. I've been putting off since life has been busy. I'm considering moving from OMV with Emby (and other apps) in Docker to Unraid with the same apps in containers. Basically my server is a couple of shares. Both shares are currently on a RAID5 (software) array. One big share for media, and then a smaller one that my wife and I use for critical files and is backed up offline and offsite. The main system drive is an SSD. I plan on putting in another SSD to serve as the data drive for all my dockers. My idea was to keep using OMV but then using MergerFS + SnapRaid to pool the drives. Then I started reading about Undraid, and it intrigues me. I'll probably set up a trial of it this weekend just to poke around. It seems like it may be a simpler way to accomplish what I'm going for. It provides many of the benefits of pooling that MergerFS and SnapRaid would, but with what seems to be less hassle. Can anybody comment on the two? Which way makes more sense? (Probably a silly question considering where I'm asking it) These are the Docker containers that I'm currently running: Watchtower Heimdall Emby Emby Beta Jellyfin Jackett Transmission with VPN Also running, but as OMV plugins (not in Docker): OpenVPN - I use this when logging on to open wifi points or to do remote admin on the server Nginx - Although I've never really gotten this running with a reverse proxy the way I would like. Is there a good guide to get it working with unRaid? Fail2Ban - Monitors OpenVPN and the Emby log files since those are the only ports open to the outside world The hardware is pretty basic. Supermicro X10SL7-F - Does unRaid support dual NICs? 16GB ECC Xeon E3-1271 Several 2TB Enterprise Drives - I plan on upgrading these when another good shucking deal comes along Thoughts? Any input is appreciated. Convince me. :) Quote Link to comment
