Wow! That's really cool! Please keep the photos coming!

Compared to yours, mine seems so puny and messy. Here is my poor man NAS.  Among other things, it runs torrent as well. No RAID though.

I'm using one of these with my Rock64 to turn it into a NAS, it's a 5-port SATA to USB 3.0 bridge with hardware RAID:

There's also a (much cheaper) 2-port version, if all your need are two disks:
https://www.amazon.com/Oodelay-eSATA-6Gb...B00T22JUT4

In hardware RAID mode, the Rock64 just sees one disk, and operates without any further configuration. If you switch to JBOD mode, the Rock64 sees all disks individually, allowing for the use of software RAID.

Hii,



It has been a while :)

I have taken this project now as a school project.

In a couple of weeks I will make a new post with everything from A to Z :)
Specially for Skyway a little photo update :)

Hi Leapo,

Have you tried with massive HDD copying tasks on your setup? How's its stability? Thanks.

Speed and stability have been great. I currently have two 2TB hard disks connected to the controller, with the controller performing hardware RAID 1 (mirroring), and have it connected to my Rock64 (running Open Media Vault) via USB 3.0. I'm sharing an NTFS formatted volume using SAMBA.

I use it as a target for daily backups of my homelab, with backups being taken of an ESXi host by Veeam Backup & Recovery. I usually see transfer speeds in excess of between 90 and 100 MB/s while running backups over the network.

I know I might get slightly better performance if I were to reformat the disks as EXT4, but I wanted to be able to plug the controller + disks into a Windows machine if need-be.

Hey Leapo, could you tell which image and kernel are you using? And what is the network protocol you are using for network file transfer?
With ayufan's jessie-omv 0.5.15 (kernel 4.4.77-rockchip-ayufan-136) I'm getting good I/O rates in iozone benchmark for HDD but I'm stuck at ~40-45MB/s with SMB, AFP or even WebDAV.. Sad while with FTP i'm getting ~90MB/s so it's strange..
Iperf for eth0 shows stable ~920 Mbit/s.
