Perfect Linux Home Server:


Brought to you by: System76

What makes for a good server OS? A few important things to look for:

  • A deep repository of packages, that are reasonably current.
  • Good online support/community for howto’s and guides.
  • Good security.

I was not happy with my big storage options for Linux, I want a native kernel level implementation of ZFS, but I want the cutting edge software options of Linux.

I bought a FreeNAS Mini from iXsystems that I use as my backend storage apliance. In front of that I have an Ubuntu 12.04 that has an NFS mount to the ZFS storage on the FreeNAS Mini box.
