Image for ZFS on PCIe SATA drives with OpenVPN and WiFi
#1
TL;DR Which distro/image supports ZFS, PCIe SATA card, OpenVPN Client, and optionally WiFi?

—-

I have finally received my RockPro64 4GB with the NAC case, eMMC module, PCIe card and WiFi module.

My goal is to build a remote backup server for important ZFS datasets on our home server.

The home server runs Ubuntu with ZFSonLinux. 

Ideally, the backup server connects via WiFi and is configured through systemd. It will need to connect to the home server via OpenVPN.

To my questions:

1. Being completely new to Linux on ARM, I would appreciate some help with the choice of the distro/image to achieve my goal.
2. Which network manager would you then recommend to automatically connect to my OpenVPN server?
3. I forgot to buy the eMMC USB adapter. Is it feasible to boot from an SD card and then dd onto the eMMC?

I have read that WiFi and PCIe is not possible in parallel, so I made the WiFi requirement optional.
