Running OMV as a VM

Positive Comment by Mined
about OpenMediaVault Feb 2016

I decided to try this OS out in a virtual machine on my "mainframe" (hypervisor, duh?) and it was nice, the test evolved into something sharp and production-like so I didn't uninstall it. It has been running as a VM for about a year or so, and I like it. I would rather run at on a dedicated box, but I am not gonna use NFS for network storage anymore. I am planning on using ceph instead, and surely, I don't need OMV to use NFS but it was there and it was easy to setup in the webGUI so I thought "why the hell not?" hehe.

But if you want a NAS that you build on your own, instead of buying a Synology or something, I can highly recommend this distro for you.
