PineH64, RockPro64, LUKS Encryption, Urbackup Speed?
#1
Question 
Hello all,

I plan to setup a new low cost backupserver which also should work as a NAS.
The external HDD for the backups should be completely encrypted with LUKS.

At the moment, I am doing my backups with a Raspberry Pi 3 with an USB HDD on OpenmediaVault with UrBackup.

Unfortunately, the transfer speeds are super slow (about 10MB/s) and I need a couple of days for a Full Backup (about 5TB of Data)
and I wanna speedup that.

I already looked thru the SBC Models and kept my eyes onto the PineH64 and the RockPro64.
Especially the option to upgrade with a (Mini) PCIE to 4x SATA Adapter, and the encryption
extensions in the processor are very interesting to me.

Now my question is, can you recommend the PineH64 or the RockPro64? for the job?
Did anybody already tested the LUKS and Ethernet Performance of a PineH64 / RockPro64?
Dont understand me wrong, I dont want super high speeds here and I know that SBC's are limited in their performance.

What I am imagine is an increase to about 40MB/s of total write speed via Gigabit Ethernet onto an USB3 or SATA HDD which is luks encrypted.

Is that possible with a PineH64 or a RockPro64? Or should i better use another SBC or a low power Intel/AMD PC for the Job?

Thanx in advance. Big Grin

Regards

Heh. My ROCK64 easily does 90MB/s over GbE with LUKS on USB3.

Wow! 90MB/s is really fast! Smile
Unfortunately, the Rock64 misses the PCIE Slot which I think is a
great feature and I want to have on my new SBC.

Do you think the PineH64 is as fast as the Rock64 or maybe faster or should I better wait for the RockPro64?
I ask because H64 is an Allwinner and not a Rockchip.

ROCK64 has fast USB 3.0 to SATA performance and should be a good board for your application as ayufan suggested.

However, PINE H64 board also is a good candidate but still takes some time for the software getting mature for user space usage.
